Hey Hunters! Kyle here – solo-founder at Gravity. Gravity is a SaaS template for Node.js that empowers startups and developers to test, build and launch at warp speed. 📕 Storytime I started my maker journey in the VC-backed startup world, but I ended up crippled with stress and one day I was rushed to the hospital after throwing up blood. This prompted me to ask some serious questions about my life. It was a huge eye-opener and I vowed to turn my life around, so I started left that crazy world behind and started building my own niche, passion-focused products while travelling the world and living my life to the fullest. 🧐 Why Gravity? Gravity is a solution to my own problem: I was wasting weeks of time writing code that was shared across almost every SaaS application when I should have been writing features that would make money. I created a template that would enable me to deploy and monetise new SaaS applications at warp speed, and then made it available to the rest of the community. 🚀 Traction I currently have 138 amazing customers who have been supportive and understanding from day one, I charge $397 for the full product plan which contains all of the features and I also offer bespoke customisation. 😎 Features ✅ Subscription Payments ✅ User interface kit ✅ Users & authentication ✅ User permissions and access control ✅ Email Notifications ✅ Homepage with pricing ✅ Rest API ✅ Internal dashboard and metrics ✅ T&Cs and GDPR-compliant privacy pages 🎁 Gift to Hunters I’d love to offer all hunters 10% discount. Just enter PHUNT%10 at checkout :-) Thank you! 🙏🏻
@kylegawley Hey Kyle, this looks great. What are the pre-requisites for someone who is just little bit familiar with coding?
@jitsalunke Thanks Jit! You would need some prior experience in Javascript and working with a Node.js project to benefit from it. Although, it could be a good way to learn/improve your skills by working on a pre-built application.
@kylegawley Got it! Thanks Kyle :)

Has saved me months of work!

Pros:

Rapid development, beautiful code examples and killer support. Everything worked "out of the box" and has been easy to build on top of

Cons:

No cons! I have not found a better alternative for a boilerplate with node.js, Stripe, MailGun, MySQL, account mgmt, dashboard, and sweet UI

I recently (two weeks ago, I think?) bought this. There's not much else out there that's similar - Laravel Spark is the only other one I'm aware of. My initial contact with Kyle to ask questions was extremely positive, and having previously tried to do a lot of this myself (e.g. django-djaodin) I knew I didn't want to do all that again. So, I'm about a week into the build, and I have this specific idea I'm implementing. Gravity has allowed me to focus pretty much entirely on that idea. I think I have another two weeks more to build, and then I'll be in a position where I can launch, with something that has valuable (I think/hope!) functionality that I can test out with users. That's absolutely perfect, and exactly the reason I wanted Gravity. I bumped into a couple of issues, Kyle's support has been brilliant. Also, his feedback has unintentionally steered me in better directions too.
@alex_hudson Thank you Alex. I really appreciate your support 🙏
This looks brilliant. Quick question - Does the UI kit mean user’s don’t need a designer, or is a designer required to put it together?
@carolinepixels Hey Caroline – the idea is that the UI kit will remove the need for a designer. You can literally just copy and paste the UI components from the library into your application and all the styling is in place. I’m currently working on a big update for the front-end which will use React so implementing UI components will be even easier! :-)
@carolinepixels design is my biggest weakness, and Kyle put lots of examples in the docs and in the codebase itself to do most of what I was thinking of trying. I had to learn about how gulp, scss works to be more effective, but Kyle helped me through that as well. That meant I could make a few small changes to the scss files and basically reskin my entire site.
@dave_young thanks for your point of view. I was keen to know how flexible the product was for reskinning or editing styles... so you answered it perfectly!
@kylegawley that sounds excellent. I'll keep any eye out for updates!
This looks great Kyle, nice work. Curious about future plans - are there any other integrations you're planning?
@monro Thanks Rick! Yes, I'm working on a big update to the front-end UI at the moment which will be rebuilt using React :-)
