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 aquire.com. 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."

Kyle Gawley – How To Build a SaaS Product Course Instructor

Why Use a SaaS Boilerplate?

As a tech founder, I've watched countless businesses blowing huge budgets and wasting months of time creating standard features like login forms and billing.

I created a Node.js SaaS boilerplate to help developers slash development costs and build products faster, empowering them to focus on building features that truly matter – the ones that deliver value to customers and generate revenue.

For a fraction of what you'll pay someone to build these features, or the time it will take you to do yourself – you'll have a production-ready Node.js SaaS application that will save you months of time and thousands of dollars.

Kyle Gawley, Gravity Founder

Reliable

Bugs are fixed within 24 hours and new updates pushed weekly. No waiting around for the community to add features or fix issues.

Support

Get help right away via email or Discord, no need to spend your valuable time on Stack Overflow searching for answers.

Customer Testimonials

Don't just take my word for it...

"Everything worked perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised by how user-friendly the whole setup process was – loved the unexpected setup wizard. I also appreciate the clean code and comments; as a Rails developer transitioning to Node.js that’s really helpful. Great SaaS boilerplate, exactly what I needed and it over-delivered at that price-point."

"We were looking for a good boilerplate for our SaaS and found a lot of junk and old code. Then we came across Gravity and found just what we were looking for! Fully updated code running on the framework we needed to get started quickly and not have to spend hours working on user logins and super admin, emails, and API tokens and more. This helped us get right to work and save us a ton of time! Thank you."

"Kyle has created an excellent product. If you're after a React SaaS boilerplate, look no further than Gravity. What's so impressive is the attention to detail in terms of the end user experience, the overall breadth of functionality (he's really thought of everything you'd need) and the stability of the product (there are no bugs, it just works). For less than 1K USD, you can't go wrong with this product."

"While building our SaaS from training at MITx PRO, it became obvious that there was a lot more involved than expected. After reviewing the top five SaaS Boilerplates from a Medium article we selected Gravity based on the online documentation and training. (High quality artifacts are the surest sign of a healthy development process). We were not disappointed; the code and its functionality are far better than we expected. The techniques and construction alone were worth the price of the boilerplate."

"I have been shopping around for a Node.js boilerplate for the SaaS I'm building. During my initial evaluation it came ahead by using React, having JSON emails, having simple to use components, proper security, third party login, and a full featured mobile app template. It took only a few days to get the SaaS online and it's been an amazing experience since. It almost feels like a no code solution - you just plug in your code into the pre-built template. "

"The code patterns are beautiful, the code is neat and well organized. I have been able to do everything I would like to do, spend a little time optimizing, and then it's done. Gravity turned a major headache into many weeks of saved time."
