Simply the Best

squeeze my lizard logo

We're a small web development outfit located in the heart of Wellington, New Zealand.

We make custom content management systems for small businesses and sole-traders.

Our web-development tool of choice is called Wagtail, which is a frame-work developed in Python. It ships with a ton of features which enable content editors to easily edit their content.

The service we offer is absolutely brilliant. If we weren't web designers ourselves, we'd hire us! :) We don't go the extra yard - we are the extra yard.

We aim to fill a niche in the small website development business, because in the words of Tina Turner, we're simply the best.

Better than all the rest

Our websites ships with some killer features, including the editor, as seen here. It's a joy to work with. It allows you to build content in a series of blocks, like building a Lego house.

A typical page like this one might consist of several different blocks. For example :

  • Heading Block
  • Paragraph Block
  • Quotes Block
  • Image Block
  • Gallery Block
  • Embed Block

Wagtail Editor

Wagtail has user authentication baked into it, so you can set up different user groups. If you're a newspaper agency for example, Wagtail includes a work-flow for content to go through moderation before you publish it. Perhaps you want a legal team to examine what you publish before you go live? No problem.

Wagtail is the best content management system I've ever used. Editors can do what they do best, write content, and web developers can do what they do best, display that content. It makes things simple. There is demarcation between what editors do, and what web developers do. Wagtail brings them together in natural harmony. In a wagtail CMS the editor doesn't have to figure out how a page displays, and a web designer doesn't have to worry about the content. It's basically perfection.

Better than Anyone

We make cheap $500 websites for small businesses and sole traders to help them get a finger-print on the internet.

Our websites are for people who have a small budget and want something special.

Our sites are built on rock-solid technology which the UK National Health Service uses for their content management system.

We're pretty sure we can handle what you want!
