Hey all, it’s a real pleasure to have Bullet Train featured here. If you have any questions, please ask! I’d love to talk about the product and our future vision in more detail. Bullet Train was born when a friend of mine asked me to help him build a SaaS product. I had become so tired of gluing together the same components over and over that I myself had basically accumulated a large pile of product ideas that I never got around to launching, so I told him I didn't want to build his SaaS product, I wanted to build his product, and I wanted to bring the SaaS. He agreed, and Bullet Train became a thing. Personally, my favorite feature in Bullet Train is Super Scaffolding. It's really made it fun to spin up new projects again. I posted a demo video of the feature in action on Twitter at https://twitter.com/andrewculver... . If you want to keep tabs on the development on Bullet Train, by far the best way to do that is to follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/andrewculver as that’s the first place I post anything, or, alternatively, you can sign up for the mailing list on our site. If you're thinking about buying Bullet Train, the best thing to do is schedule a call with me at https://calendly.com/bullettrain... and I can help you figure out whether it's a good fit for your project. Worst case scenario, I get to meet someone new! Looking forward to chatting with you all when I wake up today!

It's funny when building products.

About 80% of your effort is building your billing engine, team management, permissions, UI elements, etc.

Rarely the core application.

As a result, it's easy to get burned out early and just not launch.

Thanks to BT I don't have that problem anymore.

Out of the box it has everything you need to run a successful SAAS app so I can focus on the main, core feature set of my products.

Additionally, after you buy BT you get access to an exclusive Slack group where you can just DM Andrew any question you have. Phenomenal.

Will be using it for all projects going forward.

Kudos, Andrew.

Pros:

Andrew's wisdom, unique take on development and love of Rails equates to a starter kit that enabled me to code at a 10x faster rate.

Cons:

You're constrained to the UI template that comes out of the box, but because it's using Bootstrap 4 it's very easy to work with.

It's always a bad sign for me when I want to build a company just so I can use a product. 😅 I've wanted something like this to exist for so long! Thanks for building it.

I ran into Bullet Train on @jessethanley's project and it was a delight to interact with. I'm hoping to use this in my own project, just because it does so much for you. It's great!
