A Tool to Quickly Scaffold Custom SAAS Projects

I've built a very simple prototype tool that takes a you for zero to a working custom SAAS project in a few seconds. Check out the tweet for animated walkthrough.

Looking to see if makers here would find this useful?

If not, what would you need to make this a usable tool for you?

      Oh thanks. nice find. One thing i'm hoping to offer beyond this is the ability add specific feature and not just different technologies. You could select from a huge list of useful SAAS functionality (payment models, file uploading, search functionality) to compose together your inital project

    This. Looks. Amazing.

    Is it available anywhere to try out?

    1. 1

      Thanks a lot. I’m looking to make this publicly available in the next few weeks.

  2. 2

    Yup looks like an interesting tool. I'd love to get my hands on something like this. Considering this is a cli tool how do you plan to monitise it? Or are you planning to open source it?

    Either way, great idea :)

    1. 1

      Thanks for the support. Going to open source it. However I’m going to make it extendible so I won’t be doing all the dev myself

      1. 2

        It's a nice idea looking forward to seeing it in action :)

    Totally would use this! Love the headless/minimal approach.

    Edit: Also, would this be open source? A payed tool? When do you plan to release an mvp?

    1. 1

      Hey hey. Plan is to open source in the next few weeks. Thanks for your encouraging words

      1. 2

        Sweet - this is going to help me and many other developers so so much!

    Cool! Would be nice to see Hasura and Supabase as backend options.

    1. 1

      Nice. Been looking at how to expand. Will look into these for sure

  5. 2

    Wow! Thats got to shave a ton of time off the process...

    1. 1

      I’m really hoping so

  6. 2

    This is really cool! That'd save a ton of time and would help me feel more comfortable changing tech since right now I rely on a set of templates I've created and don't usually deviate from my standard stack.

    1. 2

      Yes exactly. I think this tool could allow quicker experimentation with stacks and genuinely help people use the right tool for the job.

      I also wonder if the tool could get smart about suggesting tech based on criteria. e.g. price and dev experience. Im dreaming a bit now though.
