Modern Backend

The first selection of options

  • Firebase
  • Supabase
  • Nhost
  • MongoDB Atlas

Evaluation

We prefere an opensource alternative to a vendor locked in alternative. The next evaluation criteria is a free tier, with zero cost development in mind this is crucial. All of the first suggestions have a free tier, however we decided to abandon all of the options and go for our own stack selection.

  • GraphQL
  • Hasura
  • Postgres

Final Results

For our first full application project we will build the back-end infrastructure on top of Nhost.io

After testing out the service online based on the 14 day trial we were surprised at how fast the implementation went of authentication and data storing. The only missing component is a free tier and that is in the making so soon Nhost will check of all the boxes !
