Firebase Authentication vs Django REST framework JWT: What are the differences?

Developers describe Firebase Authentication as "An App Authentication System In A Few Lines Of Code". It provides backend services, easy-to-use SDKs, and ready-made UI libraries to authenticate users to your app. It supports authentication using passwords, phone numbers, popular federated identity providers like Google,. On the other hand, Django REST framework JWT is detailed as "JSON Web Token Authentication support for Django REST Framework". This package provides JSON Web Token Authentication support for Django REST framework. Unlike some more typical uses of JWTs, this module only generates authentication tokens that will verify the user who is requesting one of your DRF protected API resources.

Firebase Authentication and Django REST framework JWT can be categorized as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
