Account management. Most SaaS systems need it in some form. With Carrot Seed it’s built in already. Including organisation management.
A secure and customer friendly subscription based payment system is no easy feat. So we integrated it including license, tax and invoicing.

Our integrated and foolproof administration interface covers content, text translations, user management and other administrative tasks.
Serving multiple languages on any level? Check. Internationalization (i18n)? Check. Localization (l10n)? Also check! On every level.

We will keep you posted about the new Carrot Seed SaaS Kit and inform you as soon as it is available.
You need a computer with MacOS, Windows or Linux which can run docker and a bash compatible shell. To enhance the developer experience there is some more software we recommend in our quickstart guide.
The main technologies are: Python with Django, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, Angular, and Docker. Of course there are a lot of other libraries and technologies involved (more than 100), but of course you don’t need to know all of them.
We carefully chose the dependent packages based on many different criteria based on our expertise and experience. We wrote a blog article about choosing the right libraries and frameworks: https://www.cnc.io/en/blog/frameworks-fences .
The payment system is currently based on stripe, because this gives you a lot of flexibility.
Technically yes. If it makes sense depends on your specific use case. Contact us so we can help you with that.
Yes, of course we do. We want you and your product to succeed. If you have any questions when using Carrot Seed you can reach out to us at any time. Besides support we also offer training and mentoring. And if you want us to, we can even help you with developing your code or do code reviews.
You should have at least one junior software developer who is familiar with web technologies. If you find someone interested in Angular and Django, you are in good company.
Our goal is that you can start as fast as possible. After you went through our Quick Setup Guide (~10 min) you can start implementing the business logic, because the basics are already done for you.
Partly. We built Carrot Seed so that you can run it either in your own data center, in the cloud or your laptop. Everything is based on docker images. Currently we don’t provide a hosting infrastructure for Carrot Seed projects. But we’ve included all the build scripts and deployment scripts so that you can build all the docker images and run them with one command. Therefore you can immediately simulate a production infrastructure on your laptop. To host it in production you need either a docker infrastructure or a kubernetes system. We can help you in building your production infrastructure as well.
That is very unlikely. We use Carrot Seed internally as well. It’s the foundation of all our products. If the case should happen anyway you’re still safe! With Carrot Seed you’re always in charge of the source code. You can change everything the way you want. You’re not gonna be locked in.
Everything which is web-based can be done.
