Is Sjabloon for me?

Sjabloon is a Ruby on Rails SaaS starter kit. It provides you with setup, UI components and markteting tools to help you build a successful web application fast and easy. Powered by modern, but lean front end tools (Webpack, PostCss, Tailwind and Stimulus) it comes with many features that are found in almost every successful (SaaS) web application. All fully designed using reusable components built with Tailwind's utility classes.

I'm a Ruby on Rails expert

Sjabloon uses Rails conventions and industry best-practices. It will save you time by doing configuration for things like Devise, SMTP and error monitoring. And configures a modern front end that's lean, but ready for the heavy work (Vue, etc.) in the future too. You shouldn't waste time doing these tedious tasks for every new project you start. Sjabloon also helps you by providing many UI components that will look great within every project. By using Tailwind you have to write almost no Css yourself!

I'm a freelancer Ruby on Rails developer

Jackpot! When you create multiple projects a year, or a month even, using Sjabloon saves you easily a day of the initial grunt work. 8 hours saved equals to (on average) $592 earned! Yes, I should indeed raise the price of Sjabloon.

I'm a developer and don't like tool X you use

Sjabloon uses Webpack, Tailwind and PostCss throughout the app. Without it Sjabloon won't work. And while Stimulus is easier to replace or to drop, I'd like you to consider it as it's one of the cleanest and quickest way to build a web product. That's the focus of Sjabloon: help you build successful web applications.

I'm a designer who just learned Rails

Sjabloon comes with great looking UI components that are built with Tailwind's many utility classes and thus are easy to modify. All Css is built using the BEM methodology and clearly organised, which makes it easy to find your way around them. Sjabloon uses Rails conventions and doesn't add its own magic into the mix. It will give you all you need to work on your idea right away.

I haven't used Rails for awhile

Welcome back! Depending on your time away, Rails hasn't changed too much or quite a bit, but is still amazing. Sjabloon removes some of the fluff and gets you up to speed with best practices and tools to help you get up running and build away quickly.

I'm totally new to Ruby on Rails

Don't fret! We once were all beginners. But at this point, Sjabloon might be a bit too much. It doesn't do anything magical, but it takes just so much work out of your hands. Work that, especially if you just start to learn Rails, is valuable to learn. Go and built some small applications from the ground up and then come back again!
