Firebase vs Mongoose: What are the differences?
What is Firebase? The Realtime App Platform. Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
What is Mongoose? MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment. Let's face it, writing MongoDB validation, casting and business logic boilerplate is a drag. That's why we wrote Mongoose. Mongoose provides a straight-forward, schema-based solution to modeling your application data and includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box.
Firebase can be classified as a tool in the "Realtime Backend / API" category, while Mongoose is grouped under "Object Document Mapper (ODM)".
"Realtime backend made easy" is the primary reason why developers consider Firebase over the competitors, whereas "Well documented" was stated as the key factor in picking Mongoose.
Mongoose is an open source tool with 18.8K GitHub stars and 2.62K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mongoose's open source repository on GitHub.
Instacart, Twitch, and PedidosYa are some of the popular companies that use Firebase, whereas Mongoose is used by PedidosYa, WebbyLab, and triGo GmbH. Firebase has a broader approval, being mentioned in 838 company stacks & 957 developers stacks; compared to Mongoose, which is listed in 85 company stacks and 88 developer stacks.
