  • neon

    Neon: Serverless Postgres. We separated storage and compute to offer autoscaling, code-like database branching, and scale to zero.

  • API Platform

    Create REST and GraphQL APIs, scaffold Jamstack webapps, stream changes in real-time.

  • Many projects grow to the point that the limitations of writing everything in views and stored procedures becomes more painful than writing the CRUD code in Python, Node, Ruby, PHP, or whatever.

    Personally, Iā€™d give a shout for https://api-platform.com/.

  • amplication

    šŸ”„šŸ”„šŸ”„ Open-source backend development platform. Build production-ready services without wasting time on repetitive coding.

  • supabase-rb

    An isomorphic Ruby client for Supabase.

  • supabase

    The open source Firebase alternative.

  • That's what I actually admire about Supabase [0].

    The folks created an almost full fledged Firebase replacement by clipping pieces together (similar to the article, replacing APISIX with Kong) and it allows them to iterate super fast.

    Pragmatic, and nice if you're on the receiving end of it .

  • PHP-CRUD-API

    Single file PHP script that adds a REST API to a SQL database

  • postgrest

    REST API for any Postgres database

  • To be fair, begriffs never shut down any discussion of HATEOAS, previous contributors did - because at the time users were asking for more JSON capabilities from PostgREST and we needed to focus on those.

    We're still open on adding HATEOAS, I've just opened an issue for it: https://github.com/PostgREST/postgrest/issues/2579

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
