This article talks about our SaaS template app for Laravel.
Developing multi-tenant applications is notoriously difficult. The first challenge is implementing the multi-tenancy logic itself.
For that, we've created an open-source package: Tenancy for Laravel. The package takes care of separating tenant databases, cache stores, filesystems, and more. All of it is done automatically, without requiring almost any changes to your actual app logic.
Laravel News has covered our package in the past, in the How to make a Laravel app multi-tenant in minutes article.
The package solves the actual data separation, tenant identification, and database creation. But that's only one half of what real-world multi-tenant SaaS applications need.
The other half is the extra logic for managing tenants.
The tenant onboarding, domain management, HTTPS certificates, billing logic, deployments, admin panel for managing tenants, tenant-aware migrations and testing.
This is solved by our Multi-tenant SaaS boilerplate.
It's a template Laravel application which includes all of the features mentioned above, in a fully integrated way. You install it and you have a fully functioning multi-tenant SaaS app. You only need to replace the sample app code (a simple blog) with your own app code.
Then you just redesign the landing page and onboarding screens, and your app is now a multi-tenant SaaS with all features implemented, ready to be deployed.
Early next year, we'll also be releasing a new version of the SaaS boilerplate. It will be a separate product for a slightly different use case (it will also use a different tech stack, such as Lean Admin and Laravel Jetstream). Customers of the current boilerplate will be able to join the early access, and purchase the new boilerplate at a significant discount.
