    I was regular user of Parse and after it became open-source I have built around 5-6 projects using Parse, two of them is with Flutter, but that's 1-2 years ago, and back then their Flutter SDK was a bit weak and unofficial, but currently Flutter SDK became official and I am about to start a new project, now I am considering another option AppWrite. Anyone used both and let me know how AppWrite compares to Parse? Pros and cons

    Firebase is probably the easiest choice. If you don't want Google in the mix, there's no reason you can't fire up a virtual machine in the cloud that collects statistics for $6/month. If you've never done backend work it'll take a while, though. There's also Parse, AppWrite, Vapor, etc, to make it easier.
