2G News beta

About

2G News is built around the idea that if you build a website that runs fast on a 2G mobile phone, it will feel instant on all other devices and platforms.

Technical info

Built using a Node.js and Express JS back end, hosted on Heroku, with CDN via Amazon Cloudfront.

From the ground up we build for speed, meaning that HTML, CSS and JS is minified then served with GZIP compression via our CDN.

We also avoid using code when we don't have to, so minimal CSS classes. No loading of external JS analytics tools or adverts, if we do add either we will choose a platform that is fast with a great privacy policy.

2G News was created by front-end developer Stephen Keable.
