Frequently Asked Questions
Can I see the code before buying?
Absolutely. We can hop on a call and talk if any of the MakerKit kits are right for you and your use-case.
I will not be salesy: if I would not use a kit in your place, I will tell you during the call.
How is the codebase distributed?
You and your teammates will be added to our private GitHub organization, which gives you access to all the kits and libraries we use.
MakerKit is not for me. Can I get a refund?
No one should pay for something that isn't right for them.
Please let me know within 14 days from the purchase, and you'll be refunded 100% what you paid.
Can I get any help in setting up the application?
Yes. Every plan comes with onboarding and set-up.
I will help you get started until the app is up-and-running on your local machine, from creating a project to deploying to a real environment.
If your machine already has the basic tools needed (for example, Node.js) we should be set within one hour.
I am stuck. Can you help?
Yes. You can message me on Slack or by Email.
Depending on the timezone, you can expect a reply within 24 hours during work days.
I need custom code. Can you help?
Yes, but it will be charged separately.
Can I open-source a project built using MakerKit?
If you did, we would not have a business 😅
I hope you understand that our kits will not have any value if they were published (well, except for the year-round updates).
For how long can I get updates?
You will get updates for as long as we're in business.
I want my teammates to get access to the repository. Can you do it?
Of course. You can add one teammate on the Maker plan and unlimited on the Team Plan.
Just send me their email addresses they use for their GitHub profile so that we can add them to the team.
How can I update my project with the latest changes?
Please check out the documentation to update your project. It will explain how to safely merge changes from the upstream repository.
How many kits are there?
What is MakerKit ideal for?
Any sort of web application that needs some sort of login or gated access.
For example, a SaaS (Software as a Service), an Online Publication which requires customers to be signed in to view paid content, blogs, documentation websites, and more.
What is MakerKit not very ideal for?
While coding with Next.js and Firebase is a lot of fun, it's important that you're proficient with React (and Typescript) or keen on learning it if you are purchasing a license.
If you are not confident in your React skills (especially newer concepts like Hooks), you should consider something simpler.
Also, MakerKit is not the right choice if Firebase is not the right choice for your project in the first place.
We can discuss this during the free consultation.
