Apex vs Countly: What are the differences?
Developers describe Apex as "Serverless Architecture with AWS Lambda". Apex is a small tool for deploying and managing AWS Lambda functions. With shims for languages not yet supported by Lambda, you can use Golang out of the box. On the other hand, Countly is detailed as "Real-time, open source mobile app analytics". Countly is the only open source mobile analytics tools with a wide set of features, including real-time update, multi-platform support, scalable infrastructure and a non-prohibitive license.
Apex can be classified as a tool in the "Serverless / Task Processing" category, while Countly is grouped under "Mobile Analytics".
Some of the features offered by Apex are:
- Supports languages Lambda does not natively support via shim, such as Go
- Binary install (useful for continuous deployment in CI etc)
- Project level function and resource management
On the other hand, Countly provides the following key features:
- Real time dashboard
- Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Blackberry, Appcelerator Titanium and Unity3D SDKs
