What is Firebase?

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 Parse-Server?

A Parse.com API compatible router package for Express. Read the announcement blog post here: http://blog.parse.com/announcements/introducing-parse-server-and-the-database-migration-tool/. Read the migration guide here: https://parse.com/docs/server/guide#migrating

What is tsuru?

tsuru is an open source polyglot cloud application platform (PaaS). With tsuru, you don’t need to think about servers at all. You can write apps in the programming language of your choice, back it with add-on resources such as SQL and NoSQL databases, memcached, redis, and many others. You manage your app using the tsuru command-line tool and you deploy code using the Git revision control system, all running on the tsuru infrastructure.

    Review oftsurutsuru

    Tsuru allows developers the necessary and dreamed autonomy, maintaining the infrastructure department confident and is very business oriented as it improves the time to market with safety. Where is the magic?! It is not just starting to treat people as adults(that is mandatory), you also need a system that automatically recover itself(self-healing) after any mistake, misconfiguration, infrastructure problem, etc and (auto)scale easily as needed. We have it for about 4 years at Globo.com using Tsuru PaaS, one of the most loved projects we maintain, totally opensource, powered by Docker, no vendor lock-in, no comercial version(what we use is what we provide) and very receptive to new contributions, discussions, and fix of serious issues(stop the line mindset). Tsuru manages applications with millions of users with no headaches. The main value is that tsuru allowed a new and desired culture, finally developer can have the freedow they want to deploy(the freedom comes with responsability) - thousands of deploys/month and increasing - with increased stability/availability of ours portals We can finally rest calmally at night and in the weekends, letting tsuru dealing automatically with any operational problem may happen. Try it in your company, you too deserve to be happy! https://tsuru.io https://github.com/tsuru/tsuru

    Review ofFirebaseFirebase

    Firebase is great, cheap and very flexible. Their docs are very helpful and so is the customer support, but the one thing that is so awesome about firebase is that everything is done in realtime!

    Review ofFirebaseFirebase

    We were looking for a solution to find out about all the errors our customers experienced but never informed us about.

    We use it for a few things. We use it internally for a few dashboards because it’s actually really nice to have real-time dashboard data with Firebase. We also use it extensively for live order updating. For example, when a shopper is picking your items, you'll be able to go on your order screen. There will be live showing like found or not found or whatever. You'll have live position updating of your shopper on the map. You will have live information of the status of the order like “Nicole is now picking up your order,” and all these kind of things, so you don’t have to reload the page or pull or anything. Just live updates happen natively through Firebase API, which is nice.

    Used for storing results of users (malaria predictions) and displaying to user in the app. Although the realtime aspect wasn't huge in this project, it was much quicker to push data elements for each user as firebase elements since they were purely numerical and very small. And again, the idea of familiarity - I've worked with Firebase at previous hackathons, so no need to spend time going through docs, just straight to the coding.

    Firebase let's us iterate quickly. We've used the Realtime Database to build rich UX features– like push notifications– fast. Likewise, Firebase Authentication and Cloud Functions save us from having to rebuild redundant server infrastructure. Even though Firebase can get pricey, we've saved money in developer time.

    Still in development, but we will soon (January 2016) be releasing a version that uses Firebase to keep the front end up to date in real time. Certain data are synchronised across RDS and Firebase to optimize the user experience.
