Don't get stuck. There's tons of docs (and videos!)

Continuously edited —

The starter kit you'll keep coming back to.

This isn't just a starter kit you'll use once. This is a Ruby on Rails template you'll keep coming back to, project after project. You'll come for the core features (payments, authentication and deployment), but you'll stay for the small things —

Your code, your rules.

You get direct access to the code via a private GitHub repository, which you can clone, tweak, edit and personalize.

Not the whole kitchen sink.

This template is simple, by design! It sticks to a small set of defaults that make sense no matter what you're building.

Get stuck? There's docs to help.

This starter kit's documentation is extensive and continuously improving based on customer feedback (including yours!)

Bug fixes & improvements.

This template will continue to get bug fixes and improvements, which you can merge directly into your code.

Generous licensing.

Our licensing permits you to use this template in an unlimited number of personal or client projects (subject to the full license terms).
