Web site development process with Visual Composer and Materialize : Handy tools or combined into a design trap? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Page builders är insticksmoduler till Wordpress, dessa blir ett allt mer populärt verktyg inom webbutveckling. De används idag av både frilansande designers och webbyråer som vill öka sin kostnadseffektivitet, men även av sådana som inte har någon erfarenhet alls inom webbutveckling. Syftet med denna typ av insticksmoduler är att förse användaren med de verktyg som behövs för att grafiskt skapa en webbsida. Detta examensarbete tittar närmare på de begränsningar Visual Composer medför i kombination med designmönstret Material Design och ramverket Materialize. Uppsatsen visar att Visual Composer kan vara ett bra verktyg för snabb prototyputveckling och för projekt med färre krav och designregler samt om det begränsade potential Visual Composers erbjuder även ses som ett eget designmönster redan tidigt i utvecklingen. 

Abstract [en]

Page builders are becoming an increasingly popular tool in web development and are plugins for WordPress. Today they are used by both freelance designers and web agencies who want to increase their cost-effectiveness, but also by those who have no experience at all in web development. The purpose of this type of plugins is to provide the user with the tools needed to graphically create a web page. This practical thesis looks at the limitations Visual Composer cause in combination with Material Design principles and the framework Materialize. The thesis shows that Visual Composer can be a good tool for rapid prototyping and for projects with fewer requirements and design regulations and if the limited potential of Visual Composer is also seen as a design principle early on in development.
