You might be surprised. Check out Vapor  and Soto , which are built on Apple's SwiftNIO (non-blocking I/O) . It's actually a very nice ecosystem. All the tools are in place to build web servers, Lambdas, etc.

Firebase is probably the easiest choice. If you don't want Google in the mix, there's no reason you can't fire up a virtual machine in the cloud that collects statistics for $6/month. If you've never done backend work it'll take a while, though. There's also Parse, AppWrite, Vapor, etc, to make it easier.
hi, i would like to study another backend programming language / node alteranive, do u have any suggestion?

What about Swift ? It is young and easy to learn language, although it is used mainly for iOS development, it is also nice for the backend. You can start with Vapor framework .
The SQLite Code of Ethics

I guess you mean this document?
The only bit I see about tone is
“Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial” on a list of things they said they would NOT act on complaints about.
I see nothing in there that isn’t obvious getting-along-with-others stuff. It still seems to me that it’s helpful to write those things out rather than have them unspoken. It would feel unjust and arbitrary to me if I was pushed out of a community for bad behavior but not pre-warned what was considered bad behavior. It would also feel unjust if i were to be pushed out of a community because people kept saying shitty stuff to me and I complained about the hostility and they said “no rules were broken, suck it up”.
