    My latest side project, Sjabloon (a Ruby on Rails template to focus on your core product right from the start), could turn into a FT gig based on the current sales per day vs the lack of marketing I’ve done.

    After keeping this template for myself and creating numerous products based upon it (including I decided to productise this template. It lets you choose between various default Rails options, but also adds a modern front end tooling (Webpack, PostCss, Tailwind), authentication with Devise (including views), options for various error monitoring and analytics.

    Basically all the mundane things you have to build for your SaaS app, but are not your product's core.

    Yes, it's all manually added by the founders self. You can add yours too.

    Could indeed be that some might add costs for that reason, but so far the Open Startups I've met don't have such hidden agenda—they just want to share, be transparent and open about these things to inspire and for others to learn from.

    That being said, if things do go this way I'll change things and ask for prove before I'll allow them to be listed.

    I just a launched a new interesting side-project: Startup Costs. It answers the question “How much does it cost to run a startup?”. Popular SaaS companies often talk about their MRR, but what about their monthly running costs?

    Currently building the list of more open startups, but some interesting ones:

    • Blurt, recently launched writing/focus tool at $31.67 using DigitalOcean and Github;
    • GoRails, 4 years old Ruby on Rails learning at $506, amongst others Wistia, Podia, Amazon S3,
    • Krit, agency, amongst others, uses: CircleCI, Github, Heroku and Surge.

    Feel free to add your startup / side-project. Interested in hearing your thoughts.

    Yes, if you're using Apple's included Git you're probabyly outdated anyway. Easiest (and my preferred) way is to use Homebew.
