IKEA Livet hemma
LIVET HEMMA is a blog community for everyone that likes interior decoration and IKEA.
IKEA wanted to create a place for inspiration on home decoration, interaction and dialogue. A place that give users a possibility to contribute with ideas, comment, like, share content and discuss things about homes, interior and IKEA. Also a place where IKEA can communicate with its customers and fans in a more personal way. To materialize this the choice of technical solution was Drupal.
The technology behind Livet hemma
- Livet hemma uses Apache Solr as the primary site navigation. This helps finding the information you want easy.
- The module Panels Everywhere are used to be able to support advanced layouts. We use Panels Everywhere together with the base theme Precision, that is custom designed for Panels Everywhere and brings great flexibility through a granular grid system.
- The web page uses a webservice-API that is built on the Services module. The API are used to communicate with an app for iPhone.
- On the server side Varnish is used to run the site quick and responsive.
- Memcached is used for caching for logged in users.
- The web page uses its own streaming server. The content can be linked together with this server through a special provider built on top of the module Emfield.
