This open source project provides a boilerplate for building Software as a Service applications. It includes common features such as authentication, file uploads, email functionality and payment subscriptions to help speed up development.

The boilerplate uses modern technologies like React, Next.js, MongoDB and Express to provide a solid foundation for SaaS apps. Developers can focus on their unique application rather than rebuilding common infrastructure.

Examples show how to set up the boilerplate locally and deploy to production hosts. Developers are able to reuse the boilerplate code to quickly create new SaaS products and reduce the barriers to launching in the market.
