I just shipped Trolley today! After a few weeks of working out the idea, I finally just buckled down and shipped.
During the holiday break, I was able to learn enough Rails to build a simple version of Trolley. (Its still a work in progress, Im cutting out a ton of unnecessary version 1 features, so I still have a bit more to do.
That being said, I shipped the marketing site and fully functioning demo (with just a little bit of help from off the shop email marketing software - sendy.
You can go and check it out at TryTrolley.com.
I owe a ton to this awesome book written by Amy Hoy (of unicorn free fame). Ive been following her work for sometime now, and when she shipped Just F&%!ng Ship, I bought it immediately.
After reading through the first time, I was able to really narrow focus and concentrate on the important requirements.
As a result, I shipped a marketing site and demo in a little under a week (I think it would be a much quicker process, but I was learning CoffeeScript and my school course load increased quite a bit).
If you want to ship something in 2015, I would pick up a copy.
