New guide on how to load external content in a modal
A new guide on how to set up a clean way to load external content within a modal. Just one reusable Stimulus controller, a oneliner and some attributes added to your HTML. That’s why we love Rails. 😊
Check it out.
Just welcomed the 400th happy user of Sjabloon
Last two weeks Sjabloon saw a slight increase compared to previous weeks. Thus the 400th user of Sjabloon came a bit earlier than expected. 😊 I’m super grateful to everyone of you. Thanks for your trust and I’m looking forward to see what amazing products you all will build. ✌️
A new release is here: v1.2
The next new release brings various improvements, support for the “bullet” and “rack mini profiler” gem. Next up is a new feature that allows you to configure teams and members. This is a first step of a bigger feature, including invitations and authorisation.
Sjabloon has a new owner
Just a few weeks ago I took over as the owner, developer and everything in between of Sjabloon. Before that I was already part-time working on Sjabloon and am excited to continue spending more time on it.
Sjabloon has seen hundreds of customers and thousands of apps built, since its launch in December 2018. It’s an amazing product with even better prospects. I am excited to move its development forwards. If you have any question or suggestions, do get in touch.
Improvements to the knowledge base
The Knowledge Base just got some improvements with, most notably, the option to search through the articles. As the features in Sjabloon grow constantly it becomes (even) more important to improve the documentation. These UI changes are the first step towards this. Looking forward to your feedback!
Chris joins Sjabloon 👋
If you have been in touch with us the last couple of weeks, you might met him already: Chris! He joins Sjabloon to help with support and develop the product you love to use. Welcome Chris! Super happy to have you. 🙌
v1.1.0 release is here
The first release of 2020 is here and it’s quite a beefy release with updated announcements UI and all-new stimulus controller that works like those fancy changelog dropdown (think headway/beamer). Configuration options for ActiveStorage providers S3 and DigitalOcean Spaces and a first set of developers tools to help you build an even more solid first app.
Welcome to the 300th happy Sjablooner
Yesterday at 17:21 UTC Arnaud (from 🇩🇪) was the 300th person to buy a licence to Sjabloon (unlimited plan). 🎉 I’ve already contacted them to tell the news. Looking forward to see the amazing apps you will build, Arnaud!
Sjabloon Year in Review 2019 (and a little celebration)
2019 was the first full year of business, as Sjabloon launched in December 2018. It’s been a great a year. So many things happened: new features, new UI components and many products built using Sjabloon. 😊
- added a section to celebrate products built with Sjabloon.
- launched v1 of Sjabloon full of new features, all-new UI themes
- welcomed on average 25 new customers every month…
- …which makes a total of (almost) 300 customers…
- …and almost built 1,200 apps altogether.
Fun give-away as a celebration
🎉 As customer 300 is really close, I’d like to do something fun to celebrate. The 300th customer will get upgraded to the unlimited plan (or get a full refund if they choose the unlimited plan). Sounds good? What are you waiting for?
If you are celebrating: enjoy your the holidays! 🎄
Announcing the biggest new release since launch
Since the launch in December 2018, Sjabloon has seen well over 250 sales. From solo-makers to successful entrepreneurs to web agencies. From Asia to Americas to Oceania. Different people from all over the world use Sjabloon as the starting point for their next new Rails app.
I’ve always sent each of these customers a short survey to ask for feedback. This huge new release is the accumulation of that. ✨
Although Sjabloon was officially offered as a beta-product, it was already incredible useful to all these people. Thanks to their feedback, Sjabloon v1 is here and is more feature-rich than ever before. From new UI themes and homepages designs, new admin dashboard design to GDPR, API integrations with Mailerlite and Buttondown.email, up to a custom generator for content marketing pages. And that’s not all, there are a lot more smaller features and fixes added too!
Also introducing now is the new pricing to better reflect how Sjabloon has been used in the past 12 months. For $79 you can build one app, for just $129 up to five apps and for the very low price of $249 you get to build unlimited apps. They also come respectively with 6 months, 12 months and unlimited access to the UI components library.
As always, the number of features on the backlog is quite long, so this is just the beginning!
