Firebase vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?
Developers describe Firebase as "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. On the other hand, PythonAnywhere is detailed as "Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser". It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.
Firebase belongs to "Realtime Backend / API" category of the tech stack, while PythonAnywhere can be primarily classified under "Platform as a Service".
"Realtime backend made easy" is the primary reason why developers consider Firebase over the competitors, whereas "Web apps" was stated as the key factor in picking PythonAnywhere.
