Boost the Quality

We identify common requirements in the scope of a programming framework, group them into categories and incrementally integrate them based on their popularity and your feedback. Some of them are:

  • code quality checks,
  • running tests,
  • continuous delivery,
  • monitoring,
  • and much more.

And crucially - we keep them up to date. Our top priority is that at any given point in time, you are able to start a new project with the latest stable versions of all available packages.

It’s full-stack. It’s fully equipped.

Our boilerplate takes care of the most-common requirements for you.

Own all the code

Hix is not another framework that you need to learn.
It is not another SDK with unmaintained docs and a shady code.
Most of what it ships with comes from selected packages docs.
If it does not, it is minimal, well organized and battle-tested.

I’ve used templates to quickly setup Rails apps in the past, but Hix so far demonstrated to be a much more comprehensive and modern solution, for fullstack apps as well API-only.

Here’s the motivation behind dedicating so much of my time to Hix.

Wiktor Plaga
Author of Hix
I was always frustrated with the tech-debt that accumulated during the PoC and MVP stages of successful startups software development.

Being passionate about clean, high-quality code, I decided to equip other developers with a solution that helps starting both fast and with all the best practices built-in.

  • I am an absolute beginner. Is it right for me?

    Yes, it is - you’ll learn a lot by using it. I wish there was something like this when I started.

  • What is the end-product?

    A project directory in a selected technology (Next.js, RoR) running a website similar to the demo, with subcomponents of your choice and with placeholders for media assets.

  • How many projects can I build?

    I don’t know, how many projects do you want to build? This means: as many as you have in you. Yup, go nuts.

  • How long do I get the updates?

    As long as we’re both kicking. I love working on it. Let me know if you need anything added, too.

  • I am a freelancer, can I use it for my clients?

    Sure, you can use it for your clients. You can even charge them for it. I’ll even give you a backlink to them in my showcase section - let me know when it is deployed!

  • Can I open-source a project generated with it?

    Nope.

  • I am stuck. Can you help me?

    Sure. Get in touch and I’ll do my best.

  • What's your refund policy?

    Full refund within 7 days - reach out. No questions asked, but we’d love to hear your feedback.

  • How often is it updated?

    Multiple times a day - depends on how often the packages used are updated. I encourage you to read more about it on our about page.

  • How do I get the code?

    After the configuration is completed you download a zip archive.

  • How to suggest changes?

    Through the contact page or directly on the generators pages using the Suggest changes buttons (both Next.js and Ruby on Rails). Although you don’t get the repository access, just the end-product, we are happy to implement all suggestions of our subscribers.

  • Do you provide any free plan?

    Not at the moment, no. I will eventually, once I get ramen profitable.

Here’s the road ahead of us 📌

See our Roadmap

It is important to remember that Hix is not a mere project template.
There’s a whole platform behind it.
See our past, and the milestones ahead of us.

  • New Subscription Plans

    Add 2 new subscription plans: 1st level with a demo repositories access, and the 2nd (the highest) with the generator repository access.

  • Support existing projects

    Enable subscribed users with an ability to see the implementation code of the product they’re browsing during the initialization. This will not only give an idea of its volume, but will also be useful to apply in the existing software products.

  • Suggested products

    Define the comparison criteria in each products category, assigning a rank to each of the products, and defining Pros & Cons on them. This way it’ll be easier to decide what to use during the project initialization.

  • Granular settings

    After implementing all I and the customers want in the Next.js generator, the first thing is adding an ability to further configure each product selected during the project initialization. For example: choosing interface over type usage in TypeScript.

  • Next.js Full-Featured

    I now work on implementing as many choices into the project generator as I can find and verify viable. I will not force a deadline on myself here due to a very healthy work-life balance, yet you can see yourself how well it goes up to this point, with multiple weekly releases.

  • Next.js Release

    2023-11

    Next.js product was released and I asked for feedback of my fellow programmers. Given that these were the same people as before, the feedback loop was much shorter this time.

  • Next.js MVP

    2023-04

    As the project starter model was succesfully validated on the first group of customers, I started to build another product in a framework I know very well, Next.js. It aligned well with the first releases of Next.js 13 that I wanted to implement in my template.

  • Knowledge Base

    2022-11

    Along with the initial release of Chat GPT, I started to build an extensive software solutions knowledge base, defining comparison criteria between products in the same categories.

  • Stable Ruby on Rails

    2022-06

    All the feedback was implemented, resulting in the hix.dev project generator looking (and working) more than less like it does right now. There also were first subscribers.

  • Platform's MVP

    2022-04

    The initial version of hix.dev was launched and sent to my 25 fellow programmers to gather feedback. Lots of very useful points were made that I started to implement right away.

  • Full-time Hix

    2021-12

    I decided to dedicate my whole time to the project and started to build the platform along with porting the hixonrails product into it. The idea was to validate it on a relatively small programming framework I know well, Ruby on Rails.

  • Started hix.dev

    2021-03

    Up to this point I was playing with the idea of a much bigger software project templates platform, and at this time I started designing it in my free time. The core concept was born.

  • Stable Version

    2020-06

    At this point hixonrails.com became stable with at least two solution choices in each category and maintenance updates only.

  • Minimum Valuable Product

    2020-01

    I decided to further pursue my PoC after-hours, and relatively quickly built the MVP with it’s initial website, hixonrails.com. The project builder was running in CLI via tty-prompt questions and answers.

  • Proof of Concept (for CLI)

    2019-11

    For the company that I’ve worked at the time I made a PoC presenting how to standardize Ruby on Rails projects development going further, due to the lack of common standards in the 23 repositories already in use.
