== Welcome to Saasy Saasy is a Rails app that bills and authenticates, so you don't have to. The idea is that you host Saasy on a subdomain, and communicate with it using SSO/REST protocols. That means you're free to do more interesting coding. *At the moment this is alpha code - use at your own risk* I'd like to thank Made by Many (http://madebymany.co.uk) for supporting this project. Alex MacCaw http://eribium.org firstname.lastname@example.org == Screenshots * Billing - http://github.com/maccman/saasy/tree/master/doc/Saasy_Billing.png * Sign up - http://github.com/maccman/saasy/tree/master/doc/Saasy_Signup.png * Edit profile - http://github.com/maccman/saasy/tree/master/doc/Sassy_Edit_Profile.png * Example Invoice - http://github.com/maccman/saasy/tree/master/doc/invoice.pdf == Overview * Subscription management * Recurring billing * Credit card management * User authentication and SSO == Features * No local credit card storage * Automated billing script that should be run nightly * Configurable subscription plans (price/duration) * SSL protection for account creation (and when updating CC info) * Account can have multiple users, interface for adding more * Trial ending mailer * Invoice mailer * Automated notification and retry of failed renewals * Plan upgrade/downgrades * PDF invoices * Forgot password retrieval * OpenID support * Shared secret SSO * Credit card verification * REST API for users and subscriptions == Getting Started # cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml # cp config/application.example.yml config/application.yml # cp config/subscription.example.yml config/subscription.yml # rake db:schema:load # Setup a cron job to run `rake subs:daily` daily # configure application.yml # configure subscriptions.yml # script/server -p 3001 == Gateways Currently the following gateways are supported: * Braintree * TrustCommerce * PaymentExpress == Choosing a Gateway Braintree seems to be a good choice, and they're friendly to Railers to: * http://groups.google.com/group/rails-business/msg/53da3705df6063a2 == Test transactions As far as I could tell, Braintree are the only Gateway that lets you test transactions without signing up. * http://dev.braintreepaymentsolutions.com/test-transaction/ == SSO (single sign on) I've implemented a simple SSO using shared secrets. have a look at lib/sso.rb for more information. == Gotchas I've made some extensions to various plugins/libs which I've yet to push back: * Extended ActiveMerchant's Braintree and Trust Commerce gateways (see initializers) * Edited acts_as_state_machine: * Added named_scope 'in_state' * Stopped it overriding any states I specified before creation * Make it update all the attributes on save, not just the state column * Used the Rails 2.2 version of prawnto (http://github.com/filiptepper/prawnto/tree/master) * Edited ssl_requirement so that it's disabled in development/test mode. * Rails error_messages_for now uses spans, instead of divs, to be standards compliant * Add a float component to Prawn (see initializers)
