Hey, my name is Randall Kanna and I've been a long term user of Gravity. It is hands down the best SaaS boilerplate on the market bar none. There is no other boilerplate that can compare with what Gravity offers. It is really isn't even a boilerplate, it's more like a start up in a box. It gives you more time to focus just on shipping features instead of worrying about security or emails or authentication or a stripe connection. I am such a fan. Whenever I go to like build a new feature and I think, OK, I'm gonna need a upload component for this. I just go to Gravity, I look at the documentation already exists. I'm able to pull it in really fast to my app and it's amazing and I would never be able to spend as much time testing and updating and looking for security flaws as Kyle does with Gravity. For instance, just last year, I had a user attacking my app and it was really scary. I started getting a bunch of, you know, scary emails from Stripe and there was a bunch of fraud going on. They were testing out credit card payments on my app. I just quickly pulled in the Gravity updates and I noticed that I could enable the confirm email feature and I did and the bots stopped immediately. Also I actually sold my app last year on Gravity. It was built on Gravity. I sold it on It was a lifelong dream and it felt so great to be able to do that. So, thank you Gravity.

"Fantastic SaaS boilerplate. Very well documented, clean separation of concern and overall great code quality. Great value, can definitely recommend to anyone looking to save time and money. We bought the product 6 days ago and are mostly done rebranding it. Extensions have been straightforward, as simple as following documentation and YouTube videos explaining the process."
