Relaunching Launchr

Jannis @jayfk

In May last year I decided to put the Launchr project on hold, mostly due to time constrains. Now it's time to relaunch it!

Launchr is a starter template to build a fully functional SaaS with Django.

I've redesigned the landing page, began to write more documentation and completely updated the repository on GitHub.

Overall, I think this makes it easier to understand what value Launchr provides and also makes it easier to approach.

What do you guys think? Have you ever used a starter template before?

    Does this handle subscription payments and that whole flow? The details are kinda sparse on what exactly is implemented.

    I would totally have used this for my app if it was available at the time we started.

      Exactly. The whole payment flow, plan selection + subscription management, all of it via Stripe. I'm currently sitting on a list of all implemented features and pages. Should be available in the coming days.

    Very cool, I'm going to try it out. I've been learning Django so that I can put together a SaaS offer, but it is slow going when starting from scratch. This will save me a lot of time and frustration!

      Awesome. Let me know if you get stuck at some point. This will help me decide on what documentation to write next.

Today's Top Milestones
  • Migrate to Nuxt SSR
    It was great being online, but the site wasn't doing as well as it could do because it wasn't server-rendered. Very kindly Alex Lichter from the Nuxt
  • Start the development
    In 2016 I built a time-tracking app for android. At that time, I was learning programming and the goal for the app was just to practice the skills. Fo
