November 23, 2020 +100 Integration tests & Clean Architecture layers

This week before releasing v1.3.0 I'll be adding more integration tests regarding Subscriptions, as it is the most requested feature.

We've been asked if we could implement Paddle (besides Stripe), and we wanted to implement it but we haven't had the time, as this is a side project.

We also divided the single project into:

src:
-Project.Domain
-Project.Application
-Project.Infrastructure
-Project.WebApi
-Project.Winforms
tests:
-Project.IntegrationTests
-Project.UnitTests

We're thinking v1.3.0 will be ready this sunday.

September 17, 2020 Created the first product demo video

Using Synthesia, a product I saw today on Product Hunt, I was able to create a video demonstrating the core features of the product.

It was so smooth I edited with Camtasia in less than a day.

Now visitors can see the video on the landing page to see how it works :)

September 5, 2020 Open sourced the frontend

I've been getting a lot of great feedback, but not many sales.

So I figured I should give back to the community first, not the other way around.

The frontend features are listed on the GitHub repository: https://github.com/netcoresaas/frontend-vuejs-tailwindcss.

August 27, 2020 Added dynamic pricing page

Today I tweeted about the new pricing component I'm building.

Also I'm thinking about making the frontend open source since I'm not getting many customers (as we all expect ¯\(ツ)/¯), maybe I'll give it a week or two and see how it's doing.

By "price configuration is stripe-ready" I mean that I'm using custom models following the ones that use stripe for Product to many Prices.
