Building a basic app using open-source instead of coding it from scratch?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/SaaS

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • I saw goofy_lalande post https://github.com/smirnov-am/awesome-saas-boilerplates, so that's helpful. Boilerplate is just the starting code though. Does it make sense to use other open source code as sort of building blocks too, or is that thinking too naive?

  • builderbook

    Open source web application to learn JS stack: React, Material-UI, Next.js, Node.js, Express.js, Mongoose, MongoDB database.

    I'd suggest to stick with JS on backend to save time and don't learn another language. I personally love Next.js both for front and back end, if you are familiar with React - you will love it too. My stack is Next.js (with MUI) / Vercel serverless hosting / Mongo DB I also came to fullstack from front-end, and can recommend this book: https://builderbook.org/
