Frequently Asked Questions
Is this based on the ABP Framework?
No absolutely not. The Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate is a completely separate project. While the Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate is similar on the surface, its approach is quite different underneath. By comparison, the ABP framework is ultra complex and is aimed at large corporate IT departments. ABP is highly opinionated much of the code is abstracted behind NuGet libraries. The Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate on the other hand is just straightforward unopinionated code that can be easily understood and adapted to your needs. It’s a lightweight solution best suited for small teams and individuals.
What databases are supported?
By default, the Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate uses SQL Server but can be used with any Entity Framework compatible database – MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, etc.
Can I use the code for more than one project?
You don’t have to buy a new license every time you want to use it on a new project. However, if you are purchasing the Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate for use by a team, please get in touch for a team license.
Are updates included?
Yes. After signing up for an account, you will have access to the codebase and can re-download the project or any new updates forever, and ever.
How are there multiple front-end projects?
The solution is architected into layers, the 3 common layers are Domain, Application, and Infrastructure. The 4th layer, either the React Web API or Razor App can be chosen to serve as the UI.
What kind of database architecture is used for multi-tenancy?
The Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate can use a single database for all tenants, with tenants identified by a key column, or a database per-tenant (multiple databases). Any queries on tables designated as ‘tenant isolated’ use global query filters to ensure data separation. There is no hidden reliance on NuGet packages like Finbuckle for multitenancy, it’s all there in code and easy to adapt for your needs.
Does the Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate include billing boilerplate code?
Everyone’s situation will be different. While the Nano ASP.NET Boilerplate is a great starting point for a SaaS application, it could also be used for other projects like internal business tools, or niche B2B products which may not need onboarding. For this reason, billing is not part of the scope.
What support is available after purchase?
Once you purchase the product, you will receive an invite to a private Discord for concierge onboarding. You can message on Discord any time, or via email to get help. Response time is typically less than one day.
Can I get a refund?
Due to the nature of the software being non-returnable, no refunds are available. If you have any questions or would like to see specific code samples before you purchase, please get in touch.
