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

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Klotho - AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • novu

    The open-source notification infrastructure for products. Add a notification center for your React, Vue and Angular apps 🚀

    Just a quick background about us. Novu is the first open-source notification infrastructure. We basically help to manage all the product notifications. It can be In-App (the bell icon like you have in Facebook - Websockets), Emails, SMSs and so on. I would be super happy if you could give us a star! And let me also know in the comments ❤️ https://github.com/novuhq/novu

  • Nodemon.io

    Monitor for any changes in your node.js application and automatically restart the server - perfect for development

    Nodemon is a Node.js tool that automatically restarts the server after detecting file changes, and Socket.io allows us to configure a real-time connection on the server.

  • 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!

  • Socket.io

    Realtime application framework (Node.JS server)

    Socket.io is a popular JavaScript library that allows us to create real-time, bi-directional communication between web browsers and a Node.js server. It is a highly performant and reliable library designed to process a large volume of data with minimal delay. It follows the WebSocket protocol and provides better functionalities, such as fallback to HTTP long-polling or automatic reconnection, which enables us to build efficient real-time applications.

  • react-native

    A framework for building native applications using React

    *React Native is an open-source React framework that enables us to create native applications for both IOS and Android with JavaScript code. Basic knowledge of React Native is required to understand this tutorial.*

  • async-storage

    An asynchronous, persistent, key-value storage system for React Native.

    So far, you've learnt how to set up Socket.io in a React Native and Node.js application, save data with Async Storage, and communicate between a server and the Expo app via Socket.io.

  • git

    A fork of Git containing Windows-specific patches. (by git-for-windows)

    Ensure you have the Expo CLI, Node.js, and Git installed on your computer. Then, create the project folder and an Expo React Native app by running the code below.

  • Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Express.js is a fast, minimalist framework that provides several features for building web applications in Node.js. CORS is a Node.js package that allows communication between different domains.

  • Klotho

    AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]. Build cloud backends with Infrastructure-from-Code (IfC), a revolutionary technique for generating and updating cloud infrastructure. Try IfC with AWS and Klotho now (Now open-source)
