What is Shipixen?

Shipixen is like a magical assistant (read: desktop app!) that takes the hassle out of building websites. With just a few clicks, you can generate a beautifully designed, SEO-optimised codebase that’s tailored to your brand. Developed by the illustrious Dan Mindru, it’s the perfect solution for busy developers and entrepreneurs who want to focus on their ideas, not the technical setup.

You get a git repository and/or a zip file with the code. You can then modify the code as you want and deploy it to any host that supports Next.js.

The most amazing thing is it comes in the form of a desktop app. It works on macOS and Windows, with potential for more platform support in the future.

What makes Shipixen unique?

  • Skip the config & create thousands of different starters
  • Unlimited codebases - No hidden costs. No subscriptions.
  • 1-click deploy to Vercel
  • AI content generation
  • Customise logo, theme, branding & favicon
  • Pre-built themes
  • Beautiful landing page components

Shipixen is more than just a boilerplate - it’s a powerful tool that lets you create unlimited custom websites, all with your own branding, theme, and content. And the best part? You own the code, so you can make it your own and take it wherever you want.

Who can benefit from Shipixen?

Shipixen reviews

I have pre-ordered Shipixen and it such a great concept to generate a boilerplate. Instead of simply clone a repo, you pre-customize its content and it is already tailored to you.

In addition to that, Dan’s design is great and I and can only expect great things for the next updates.

This is the only way I will be creating websites in the future.

Thanks Dan for making me regret wasting my time on coding my marketing sites myself 😂

I wish that Shipixen was available earlier so that I didn’t have to rebuild all of them again with it!

Daniel Stuski

I selected the “Generate content with AI” option, out of curiosity.

Most impressed with the accuracy of the following sections:
- Key features
- FAQ
- Testimonials (is fake yes, but spot on)

“Days of work are now minutes only.” — guess i’m taking the next few days off!
