Architect vs Cloud Functions for Firebase: What are the differences?
Architect: The simplest, most powerful way to build serverless applications. Create, deploy, and maintain next-generation AWS cloud function-based serverless infrastructure with full local, offline workflows, and more; Cloud Functions for Firebase: Run your mobile backend code without managing servers. Cloud Functions for Firebase lets you create functions that are triggered by Firebase products, such as changes to data in the Realtime Database, uploads to Cloud Storage, new user sign ups via Authentication, and conversion events in Analytics.
Architect and Cloud Functions for Firebase can be primarily classified as "Serverless / Task Processing" tools.
Architect is an open source tool with 594 GitHub stars and 48 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Architect's open source repository on GitHub.

In #Aliadoc, we're exploring the crowdfunding option to get traction before launch. We are building a SaaS platform for website design customization.
For the Admin UI and website editor we use React and we're currently transitioning from a Create React App setup to a custom one because our needs have become more specific. We use CloudFlare as much as possible, it's a great service.
For routing dynamic resources and proxy tasks to feed websites to the editor we leverage CloudFlare Workers for improved responsiveness. We use Firebase for our hosting needs and user authentication while also using several Cloud Functions for Firebase to interact with other services along with Google App Engine and Google Cloud Storage, but also the Real Time Database is on the radar for collaborative website editing.
We generally hate configuration but honestly because of the stage of our project we lack resources for doing heavy sysops work. So we are basically just relying on Serverless technologies as much as we can to do all server side processing.
Visual Studio Code definitively makes programming a much easier and enjoyable task, we just love it. We combine it with Bitbucket for our source code control needs.
