This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • supabase

    The open source Firebase alternative. Follow to stay updated about our public Beta.

    Look at Supabase. I haven't used it yet but have been following their changes. If you want to host it on your own servers or virtual machines you can, which will likely be cheaper but not come with mirrors, backup, load balancing, etc.

  • Vapor

    💧 A server-side Swift HTTP web framework.

    You could learn Vapor, I created a tutorial series for this, you write the backend API in Swift, rather than needing to learn another programming language

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
