  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service

    I think they should have added into the mix. There is little extra cpu cost and there is basically as much compression as protobuf.

  • js-framework-benchmark

    A comparison of the performance of a few popular javascript frameworks

    Dude, no need to be hostile lol. To clarify, when I said benchmarks, I did mean the product-oriented varieties like the ones from the self-driving tech I mentioned, rather than synthetic ones like this. The self-driving tech benchmark in question took months of research, and meticulously looked at several different technologies in the context of the requirements of the product.

  • 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!

  • protobuf

    Protocol Buffers for JavaScript (& TypeScript).

    It's you who fails to acknowledge that raw speed may be a factor (although it's obvious). FWIW the protobuf authors themselves advertise protobuf as being faster than JSON right on their homepage.
