The new Powerpuff Girls website, running alongside the global TV series launch, starts with your average day in the City of Townsville and ends with the girls battling their horrible, mean archenemy Mojo Jojo as he tries desperately to take over the site!

I asked them to fill me in on the backstory on this website and here’s what they said:
The app is hosted on an AWS EC2 instance running NodeJS to push out the translated versions to visitors. When users access the URL for their region (of 18 possible within Europe, Middle East, and Africa), we determine the language file that should be used to build the templates and then serve that version to the user. We used CloudFront edges in Frankfurt and Ireland to cache these templates for the fastest possible response times for users, who were located in the EMEA region.
The results? Not only has the site been featured on a ton of design and development websites, most recently being named Site of the Month on CSS Winner but most importantly, fans love it. Since launch, the site has Powerpuff Girls fans, both new and old, throughout Europe, Middle East, and Africa delighted and excited for the new show.
