The open source Firebase alternative. Follow to stay updated about our public Beta.
If you for a BaaS like Firebase, look at Supabase. Question is if the 5m records have a lot of data, Supabase gives you a 500mb PostgresDB and a Firebase-like API for it for free. And pricing beyond that is predictable instead of paying for everything you do on Firebase. Selfhosting Supabase is still soon:tm: (you wont get the fancy Supabase UI), but if pricing is your issue with Firebase thats the solution.
Open-Source Data Platform 🐰 — Directus wraps any SQL database with a real-time GraphQL+REST API and an intuitive app for non-technical users.
Another one I tried is Directus, it's more a Content Managing plattform, but it connects to a database, provides you with a REST/GraphQL API and gives you a nice admin interface to manage the database.

Appwrite is a secure end-to-end backend server for Web, Mobile, and Flutter developers that is packaged as a set of Docker containers for easy deployment 🚀
If you don't mind renting and maintaining(!) a VPS but don't want to write your own backend, appwrite is neat. Pull the docker container and you got a selfhosted Firebase. Another question if this is scaling well to your needs.
