Who is this template for?

It is:

  • For Indie Hackers, makers and entrepreneurs looking to build and ship side projects.
  • An operating system to structure, store and organise your ideas, frameworks, tasks, conversations and resources in one place.
  • A place to jot ideas and categories your projects in a structured manner
  • A place to stop planning and start doing.

It is not:

  • A guide on how to market, launch, sell or grow your project
  • Expect frameworks and an operating system to enable you to bring your side project to life. Not a guide or step by step details on how to find success in your project. That's where you come in! You're the unique value add. This OS is just to make sure the cogs keep turning.
