AppMill - Build Apps Easily
1 month ago
Provide a way of building, testing, and getting the code for apps for Zapier
What is included in the sale ?
The whole source code and domain name, including instructions and automation on how to setup infrastructure.
I'm happy to help this get setup in another server and with other accounts as well.
What is the technological stack ?
Node.js and Vanilla JS.
Which parts of the project are incomplete ?
The download part is still manual (once I get the payment confirmation email from PayPal, I SSH into the server and get the .tar.gz file — which is automatically created when the app is built — and attach it to an email).
Do you have any traffic ?
I don't measure it, and it's been launched for less than a week, and I haven't promoted it yet.
Why are you selling ?
I want to work on another side project, and I don't want this to be distracting.
How can the future owner turn the project into a business ?
It already has a business model, to allow developers to pay a one-time fee to get access to the generated source code.
Interesting! Has this been promoted anywhere?
Not yet. I shared on ProductHunt at a terrible time (minutes before the day PT day ended), and was planning on promoting it on a few known directories for small businesses, but decided to try and sell it for now and focus on another project instead.
Good project, but I am curious about any possible API change in Zapier side. Will it require a change in tool as well?
That’s a great question! The main use is from the CLI tool, which is versioned and thus even when they update it, you can keep using the old version and all will continue to work. Ideally though, you’d update it and make sure it keeps working (there are rarely breaking changes, and they’re communicated when released, so it’s usually just running ‘npm -g update zapier-platform-cli’ in the server - all of this is documented in a read me file).
