Just Validation. No Over-engineering.

Stop over-complicating things

Do you find yourself over complicating things by jumping into over-engineered tech stacks before you even know if your idea is worth building?

So many decisions come up. What should my landing page look like? I should make it responsive for sure. It needs a feedback form. And payments? What about authentication? State management? Dark mode!?

This just means WEEKS of delay before you EVEN START validating.

Less thinking, more action

No more deliberating the best responsive landing page designs

No more rebuilding the same old feedback form flows, or setting up email integrations, TS configs, db connections... or any of that schlep

Just update a few config files and launch 🚀

Stop wasting time. Pull this repo, change the copy and color variables, add some API keys and boom! You're ready to go.

You can get fancy when actual payments start coming in.


Super simple starting stack, fully upgradable later

Everything you need to get started, but nothing you don't. Easily upgrade to a more complex stack when you're ready. Built with NextJS, TailwindCSS, Prisma and CockroachDB.

Immediately accept payments

Strategically placed buy buttons from the get-go. Just add your LemonSqueezy or Paddle creds and you're set.

Instant waiting list

Not ready to charge yet? Instantly add a waiting list instead.

Built-in feedback form

Capture feedback straight to email and CockroachDB. Quick, easy, and painless.

What other makers think

Frequently asked questions

Who is this for?

Indiehackers who can code, but don't want to waste time setting things up. This is for you if you want to get to market as fast as possible, and iterate from there.

Who is this not for?

Anyone who can't code. You need to have the technical chops to get a NextJS app up and running. This is not a NOCODE solution.

What does it cost?

$25 for a years access to the repo.

What do I get?

A full year of access to this repo. You'll also get all the updates pushed during that year, for free.

Is this page built with this repo?

Why, yes it is! I'm using it to validate if there's demand for this very repo itself.

What do I need to configure?

You need to create a free CockroachDB, transactional email(SendGrid or SendInBlue) & LemonSqueezy or Paddle accounts. Then update your config(copy, colors & fonts) files to your project.

What payment methods does this support?

LemonSqueezy and Paddle are supported. Coming soon: Stripe

What email providers does this support?

Currently Postmark, SendInBlue and SendGrid.

What analytics services are supported?

Any JS snippet-like service is supported. If you can add a snippet to your site, you can use it on Rik's Quick-start Repo.

Why CockroachDB?

We need a cloud-based DB because I prefer to use Vercel for hosting, which does not support static storage(like MySQLite needs). CockroachDB, with its generous free tier is an ideal solution.

Is it written in TypeScript and fully typed?

Hello no! Actually, TS is set up and configured, but this is not the time for getting anal about types. We need to sell some stuff first.

What is the unit test coverage? 100%?

You wish! There's no unit tests at all. Ain't nobody got time for that. You can start bringing in testing when you've got $10K MMR and something to lose.
