    Default Firebase

    I discovered Firebase by Google, last night.

    It is a data storage structure than can provide similar functionality to a database, but highly different from a database.

    Anyone here uses it?

    This could help a lot of people with website/app/game development.

    I had used it before, the first version before Google bought them, when I was looking at AngularJS. It is mostly used for JavaScript based SPA built using frameworks such as Angular, Ember and Meteor. However it can be used with other frameworks such as Rails and Laravel via DB wrappers. For what it is, it works well considering that it takes care of background tasks such as CRUD and Auth for you.

    With all that said, it comes with the caveat that its a Google acquired business, so longevity of the platform should be considered.

    I built my own php/MySQL server to support my apps in development.

    If I had known about this I probably wouldnt have.

    Happy I have my own server independent of other services though.

    If I decide to pickup Ionic or React Native development I would use FireBase though. If Google decide the FireBase thing isn't working out, I would migrate to Postgres JSON store or CouchDB

    Google has expanded Firebase to be much much more that the core Real-time Database product. It now also includes Authentication, Push messaging, Analytics and a lot more. I've tested out most of the APIs so far and even though it's not perfect I'm already sold. You can use as little or as much of the services as you'd like and as such don't have to be tied into the entire ecosystem if you don't want to. For the app I'm currently working on I'm using Cloud Messaging (for push), Authentication (mainly because I'm using Storage and Database), Storage (for user files that don't need processing on server) Analytics and Real-time database (for private user data that doesn't need additional processing).
