Payments with Stripe is here
After quite some time in beta, one of the most requested features is here: billing with Stripe. From the start the aim was to make it as easy as possible to set up. So for your next new app, you only have to take three steps: grab your API keys from Stripe, add your product’s plans in Stripe and lastly run the command to fetch your plans to your app. That’s all needed to accept payments.
Sjabloon handles everything from creating your pricing page to accepting credit cards to sending your users their receipts by email.
For more information, quick start guide and a FAQ see the extra README that comes with every new app.
Added Rollbar and updated to Tailwind Css v1
Today adds Rollbar as an option for your error monitoring needs. Also Tailwind Css v1 was released. Although Sjabloon, and its many users, were already on the bleeding edge version for some time, after today Sjabloon boosts the latest official v1 release for Tailwind.
Easier browsing of UI components
The UI components library are loved by many of you and are used in many different projects already. These UI components are all custom-designed exclusively for Sjabloon. Over the past months many new componens were added and as such it became cumbersome to scroll this ever-growing list. Thus today, I added some navigation so you can easier browse and discover all the UI components.
All-new, beautiful custom theme and homepage
Just a few days after the last release that upgraded Sjabloon to bleeding-edge version of TailwindCss, comes a big new release with an all-new theme and and a complete overhaul of the homepage. A beautiful and custom design that surely will help you market your new product in better ways. This release also comes with two complete new UI components to help you build great-looking UI by simply copy and pasting code!
Updated to the beta version of TailwindCss
The v1 release of TailwindCss is around the corner. As this beta version is a real stable version already and big changes are very unlikely, I updated all of the Sjabloon (including this very page you look at) with the latest release. It’s currently locked at the next release, and will be switched to the official release number once it’s out. This new release brings mostly some consistency around the codebase, but most notably holds a complete new colour palette.
Many new UI components added
Many new UI components are added to Sjabloon. From buttons and custom checkboxes to a complete new sign up / log in component.
These UI components are built using Tailwind’s utility classes and are one of the most popular features in Sjabloon. It helps you build a beautiful UI quickly and easy.
Last week Sjabloon saw its 100th customer
Last week Sjabloon welcomed the 100th customer. That’s a huge milestone for a product that is just three months old and technically still very early stage (currently still sold for an early bird price). For me it’s even more exciting to think about the number of new products that are and were built using Sjabloon.
If you haven’t yet bought Sjabloon, today is a great day to do so. Thanks to all who bought Sjabloon and thus invested in its future.
New release: Keep your customers in the loop
Starting today Sjabloon has a plug and play feature to subscribe your new users to your newsletter in Mailchimp. Email still is an incredible powerful marketing channel and it would be foolish not get the consent of your users right when they sign up for your app. Sjabloon adds two agnostic ‘service objects’ that can be called (from wherever) to subscribe or unsubscribe emails from your list within your Mailchimp account.
This release furthermore adds Sidekiq as an option, a new way to manage all your app’s configuration (that are not credentials) and updates Devise to the latest version.
Mandrill, Intercom and Tawk.to support
Starting today you can add Mandrill as your SMTP provider of choice. Intercom + Tawk.to can be added as your chat/customer support solution right from the moment you deploy (without fiddly copy-pasting). You can now also opt-out to have static pages (like about, terms and privacy) created for you.
50 sales for Sjabloon
Since launch early December 2018, 50 people are now using Sjabloon to build their new side projects, business and SaaS products. I am really excited to see what is going to be build with it. Onto the next 50!
