Latvian Berta.me, billed as a content management service and a website builder for creative types, tells that they have launched version 0.8.6a of their service. Its uniqueness, popular amongst photographers, artists and designers is in simplicity of creating free-style layouts, often free from tables or any type of rigid structures.
We first covered it back in April 2012 and they’ve had a few updates since that time. This latest version provides a new cropping tool for gallery images, advanced feature for ecommerce section, further language support (section names can now support characters in Greek, Russian, Polish, Czech, Latvian, Ukrainian, and Turkish), an auto-play option for the video player, a move to HTML5, number of new templates and more.
The company received seed-funding from the grant program Investeriga and has members of their team in Latvia, Germany, and the Netherlands. The service was founded in 2008 by Sandijs Ruluks, who has since moved on to co-found Froont. They offer packages for 20 Euro, 50 Euro, and 95 Euro per year, depending on how much storage-space the customer requires, whether or not they need a plug-in for PayPal, and whether or not they’d like to remove branding. Each of their 3 packages offers a 30-day free trial, so it’s definitely worth checking out if you have a webpage you’d like to build. There are a number of competitors out there in this market, but some recent CEE-based startups we have mentioned about are Polish Web.me (post here) and Czech Webnode. Berta is an open-source project and they therefore maintain a page on GitHub where people can contribute to the app.
