What is Campfire?

Campfire is an installable, self-hosted group chat app from 37Signals.

It’s simple, clutter free chat and it comes with the best feature imaginable: no monthly recurring charges.

With Slack and Teams it can cost tens, hundreds or even – amazingly – thousands of dollars a month forever to chat with your coworkers or your community. That’s crazy!

With Campfire you pay once and it’s yours forever. Your app. Your data. One payment. Forever.

This makes it not only perfect for both small and large teams, but also growing online communities that can’t afford per user pricing.

Ship It Squirrel will help you quickly get setup on Campfire with your own custom domain and, if necessary, paywall or other authentication.

We are the leader in Campfire customization

Makes literal peanuts


The best thing about Campfire is no monthly recurring charges. The second best thing? It’s fully customizable!

When you purchase a license of Campfire you also get the code. And – with the help of Ship It Squirrel – you can completely customize the entire app.

Ship It Squirrel will help you customize your Campfire app to match your brand and your needs, while also continuing to update your Campfire install with the latest updates from 37Signals.

Paywall. New features. Extra authentication. Admin area. You name it, we can do it.

Jumpstart Pro Web and Mobile


Jumpstart Pro is the best available Ruby on Rails SaaS template.

It's the perfect starting point for your next project.

It includes everything you need to get started right out of the box, so you can concentrate on your business instead of the basic boilerplate.

The Jumpstart team understands the challenges of building products. Having created many themselves, they became familiar with the recurring issues.

Something as simple as adding Teams to your application can get really tricky, really fast. They learned this the hard way and that's why they built Jumpstart Pro.

We are your Jumpstart Pro professionals

Works for peanuts

Our team has been working with Jumpstart Pro since it was first released and we know it inside and out.

It's the best way to get your product to market faster and with fewer headaches.
