Web development is a creative exploratory process of writing a complex set of instructions to make something simple and beautiful

Web development

Sunny Side Up provides web-development using the Silverstripe Content Management System (CMS).

Our areas of expertise include:

  • E-commerce
  • High-traffic optimisation
  • Mobile First
  • Complex forms, data collection, and "big data" management
  • Internationalisation and localisation
  • Search engine optimisation and understanding your visitors

Other expertise

While Silverstripe is our CMS of choice, we can also provide plenty of expertise in many other technologies. Here are a few technologies we have worked with: 

  • CMS Solutions: mainly Wordpress, but we also have an interest in Laravel and the Craft CMS;
  • Front-end Frameworks: jQuery, VueJs, React and Angular;
  • Newsletter Applications: Campaign Monitor and Mailchimp;
  • Survey tools: Survey Monkey, TypeForm and Google Forms;
  • Google tools: Google Maps and Google Drive integration;
  • Video Platforms: YouTube and Vimeo
  • Social Media Integrations and Logins: Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter;
  • Payment Gateways: Stripe, Paypal, Windcave (formerly DPS), AfterPay, and many others;
  • Marketing platforms: SalesForce;
  • E-commerce platforms: Shopify;
  • Search Engines: Solr, SwifType, Elastica;


Sunny Side Up was one of the first companies to adopt the Silverstripe CMS. We have not looked back since. After many years, it got adopted as the New Zealand Government CMS of choice and we feel it is a great tool for medium-sized websites that require a unique brand experience. 

As part of our commitment to the Silverstripe open source community we have published more than 250 Silverstripe Modules and we are adding new ones regularly.  

We offer a range of services in Silverstripe CMS, ranging from custom projects through to website audits, security patching, e-commerce, hosting, and upgrades. 

Craft CMS

While we are specialised in Silverstripe CMS, we also offer work with Craft CMS. We offer similar services through Craft, and are capable of working with clients where Craft CMS is more suitable. 


Sunny Side Up offers services that can get your e-commerce site up and running. We will be happy to work with you to create an e-commerce site uniquely catered to your business and that is fit for purpose. This process is service oriented, meaning we will work closely with you to deliver a personalised product.

We prefer to build e-commerce sites in either Silverstripe CMS and Shopify. 


Sunny Side Up is a Shopify Partner and we can help you work through the most complex Shopify challenges. 

Shopify is a pre-built e-commerce platform that allows shop owners to set up an online presence. It works beautifully from day one and all you need to do is load your details and start selling. 

For example, we can create custom API connections, we can help you select the best apps, apply custom themes, create a unique shopping experience, and help you get the most out of your existing Shopify application. 


Sunny Side Up is an early adopter of NextJs, working to integrate NextJs with Silverstripe CMS. We are pushing this technology as it produces sites with enhanced speed and reduced loading times.
