Larafast — A Laravel SaaS Starter Kit

When it comes to building a SaaS product, Laravel essentially covers many things for you out of the box—things such as authentication, user management, notifications, queues, etc. You can further use first-party or third-party packages to add more features to your application.

For instance, if you want to handle payments, you can use Laravel’s Cashier package or if you need a social authentication, you can use the Socialite package, and so on. These packages would definitely get you started but to build a robust SaaS, you would need even more. And if you’re short on time, it would be really difficult to launch a production-ready application within the deadline.

This is where SaaS starter kits like Larafast come in handy.

What is Larafast?

Larafast is a Laravel SaaS started kit that gives you an application that comes with a host of components to handle payments, SEO tools, user auth, landing page, and even a blog pre-built. So, you can just start working on the core of your business instead of worrying about the boilerplate.


Also, all the components are built with TailwindCSS and DaisyUI. And so, you can utilize more than 30+ themes which comes out of the box.

Larafast comes with both TALL (Tailwind CSS, Alpine.js, Laravel and Livewire) and VILT (Vue.js, Inertia.js, Laravel, TailwindCSS) stack application boilerplates. So, you can work with whichever stack you’re comfortable with. You will get access to the repositories of both starter kits once you buy a package.


As I mentioned previously, Larafast comes with a host of features a SaaS needs pre-built. Let’s discuss them.

Admin Dashboard

Larafast comes with a beautiful admin dashboard through which you can manage application users, orders, subscription, statistics, blog posts, and more pretty conveniently.


Since Larafast comes bundled with a blog, you’ll start writing articles on your application in no time. Thanks to blog and article pages out of the box.


Talking about the blog, Larafast sweats all the things related to SEO for you. Your application is covered for things like SEO meta tags, Twitter cards, OG tags, automatic sitemaps, and of course SEO-optimized blog articles.


Since payments are an integral part of a SaaS, Larafast covers you on that front as well. Your application can leverage the built-in subscriptions, product checkouts, order statistics, subscription statistics, webhook handling, customer portal, and more, all powered by the popular payment gateways like Stripe, LemonSqueezy, and Paddle.

User Dashboard

Larafast makes user authentication (login/registration), social authentication (Google, Twitter, GitHub, etc.), and magic links a cakewalk to get started with which is powered by Laravel Fortify.

Multitenancy also comes baked-in if your application ever needs it.

In closing

All-in-all, if you’ve ever wanted a starter kit that can take away all the pain points to get started with your SaaS, you should certainly give Larafast a chance.
