We turn your design into Ruby on Rails front-end code. Simple.
Unlike others you’ve worked with, we deliver on time, have expert knowledge on Haml, Sass, Compass & CoffeeScript and know the Rails asset pipeline. How’s that for a change?

Here's why you should work with us.
We know Rubyists
SliceCraft was founded by 80beans, a well-known Western European Ruby consultancy. Early 2005 we started working with Ruby on Rails exclusively. We understand what you need, because that’s what we would need.
Your own front-end architect
Writing great code is hard, which is why our front-end architect Roy Tomeij will personally oversee your project. We’ll apply his expertise on modular and reusable front-end code, as we have done to over a hundred projects before. You may have seen him speak at about two dozen international conferences.

Less code, easier maintenance
Unleashing the power of Haml (or Slim, or Erb), Sass (or SCSS) & Compass on your project, we’ll save you lots of time implementing the dynamic bits. Well structured code and meaningful comments take the pain out of maintenance.
High speed CSS authoring
Making sprites or writing a ton of vendor specific prefixes isn’t fun. Compass fixes annoyances like this by providing a collection of handy helpers, which we’ll put to good use in your project.
CoffeeScript & jQuery
Blazing fast user experience
Even with the fastest back-end code, the user experience largely depends on an effective front-end. That is why we live by Yahoo!’s best practices for speed optimization, minimizing image sizes and the number of http requests.
Ready for the future
Utilizing HTML5 and CSS3 we make the most out of what modern browsers can do. We use Modernizr for feature detection, making sure the experience degrades gracefully in older browsers.
We know your visitors don’t all sit at their desks or have a broadband connection. We can cater to a variety of screen sizes and devices using responsive design, touch optimization and retina friendly graphics. Our device lab of over a dozen handheld devices lets us physically test on a range of devices running iOS, Android, BlackBerry & Windows Phone.
Rails asset pipeline
By using the asset pipeline, our front-end code is a first class citizen. Just drop our code in your Rails projects and you're set.
Great looking forms
Tell us your form structure and we’ll make sure our front-end code will make it look pretty. Rails form helpers, Formtastic and SimpleForm bear no secrets for us.
No more copying and pasting pieces of code to create reusable partials. We’re keeping it DRY by creating these partials where it makes sense, so you only have to add the dynamic bits.
Great value for money
Let’s face it: quality doesn’t come cheap. We deliver great code, hand-crafted in Amsterdam by specialists who make Western wages and work normal hours. We’ll give you great value for money, but will compete with the Far East on quality only.
