I usually start building the core feature without even thinking about the whole app with user authentification etc.

Once the core feature works, I quickly design a landing page and the few screens I need to allow users use the core feature (I use Sketch for this). Then, I create a Rails app (you can pick up the stack you prefer here) and build the app according to my sketch design.

My philosophy is to launch as quickly as possible the first version of your app. Then, you can iterate and talk to your first users in order to make it better.
