Firebase is an easy-to-use BaaS (backend as a service) platform for mobile and web applications.
Sadly, Firebase isn't sufficient for larger applications that require containers, SQL databases, Redis clusters or anything else not supported by Firebase.
Stacktape allows you to deploy almost any infrastructure components, including containers, batch jobs, SQL and NoSQL databases, API Gateways, MongoDb Atlas clusters, Load balancers, file storage, CDN & more.
Stacktape allows you to manage infrastructure using simple and declarative configuration file. You can easily deploy as many environments (stages) as you want.
Stacktape supports zero-config, heavily optimized parallel builds with advanced caching.
Stacktape comes with a VS code editor extension to further improve developer experience with validation, autocompletion and built-in documentation.
Firebase can get very costly very fast when you go out of the free tier.
Being a new product, Stacktape doesn't have a large community yet.
Stacktape doesn't come with purpose-built features for mobile apps.
