I was right in time for changing the pricing model and adding the "resources" dashboard for Serverless SaaS to be featured on ProductHunt. If you have some time to check it out, I would appreciate it!
Serverless SaaS is going to change into a membership.
That means that for new customers, the Serverless SaaS boilerplate can only be bought as a yearly recurring subscription. As long as you are subscribed, you will have access to new updates, the resources dashboard, and are you allowed to use the starter kit for commercial projects. I'm also looking into ways (like creating a private discord) to make this more like a community for people who are building SaaS products.
Customers who bought Serverless SaaS will gain access to the new "resources" dashboard. This place will hold all the links to resources related to the boilerplate (like the links to the repo and documentation), but also a list of additional helpful resources for SaaS founders. This growing list contains links to helpful articles, recommended books/podcasts, places to post your startup, a list of potential investors, and more.
Time to share some updates to the https://serverless.page.
When your app is in production and people start to use it, it's nice an admin panel where you can view and edit data of your project. The Firebase console is a great start, but if you want a custom overview of the most important data in your SaaS app you might want to build an admin dashboard for yourself.
This boilerplate now comes with an admin dashboard that you can use to build upon. It comes with a sidebar layout with an overview page, a link to your stripe dashboard, and a page with a list of all the users in your database. This admin panel can be extended with any data that you would like to add.
If you already use the boilerplate and want this new feature in your current project, go to the Github repository and copy/paste the following directories into your project:
Next, go to the Admin section in the documentation and follow the remaining steps.
Users can now delete their account from the /account/edit page. It will first prompt the user with a confirmation modal and if accepted the user will be removed from Firebase authentication. A Cloud Function called onUserDelete is added that subscribes to that delete event and it will clean up the user data in the Firestore DB. If you have added more user-related data to your project, make sure you extend this function so it will remove those also.
That's it for now.
Two months ago, Serverless SaaS opened early access and since then it has made 20 sales! The great thing about it is that I had received a lot of positive feedback. Since then, the documentation has been improved and lots of new features and bug fixes have been added.
After many hours of work, it was finally time to give people access to my new project, a SaaS boilerplate. In the first 5 days of early access, I almost made $2k in sales.
I wrote a blog post about what I did before launching: https://jakeprins.com/blog/how-i-went-from-2k-in-a-year-to-2k-in-a-week
Finally, Serverless SaaS goes live! 🎉
Serverless SaaS is a boilerplate that will give you the perfect starting point for your next React app to build SaaS applications. For the last couple of months, I have been working hard to implement features like authentication, billing, teams, and a lot more. And now it's time to start early access.
Be one of the first to work with this starter-kit and save lots of time building your next (SaaS) application.
In the upcoming days, you can still get it with a 50% discount!
Just visit serverless.page to find all the information you need. If you have any questions please let me know.
To give people better insights into what they can expect when buying the Serverless SaaS boilerplate I made a promo video. As of now, it's live on the landing page: https://serverless.page.
I used Canva to create the video, which is a great tool for creating nice images and videos. It works really smoothly and I could create this video for free.
I think the video works great for showing what the product really is. I might improve it in the near future, it's still a bit long.
Excited to have pre-orders now available for the Serverless SaaS Boilerplate!
If you are looking for a faster way to launch a SaaS application, go to serverless.page and read more. Pre-orders save 50%!
The development of the Serverless SaaS Boilerplate is going very well. Some developers are already helping me testing the project. I think the launch date will come soon.
Because things are looking very good I decided to make pre-orders available, starting today! Gumroad makes this really easy. If you want to be one of the first people to work with this project and also like to save 50% on the price, you can go to serverless.page and scroll down to the pricing section.
You can place your order, but won't be charged until the day of the release.
I have just updated the landing page of https://serverlesssaas.com.
It now has more information about features and the technologies used to build the boilerplate. It also includes some blog posts that you might find helpful. If you have some time go ahead and check it out!
Instead of spending time on implementing authentication or implementing payments, it would be nice to have a starter kit that gives you this out of the box. Tha's why I'm building Serverless SaaS.
