Firebase logoFirebase  vs.  Stacktape logoStacktape

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 continuously running jobs, containers, batch jobs, SQL databases or anything else not supported by Firebase.

Stacktape's Advantages

Full power of AWS

Stacktape allows you to deploy almost any infrastructure components, including containers, batch jobs, SQL and NoSQL databases, API Gateways, Load balancers, file storage, CDN & more.

Infrastructure as Code

Stacktape allows you to manage infrastructure using simple and declarative configuration file. You can easily deploy as many environments (stages) as you want.

Optimized build process

Stacktape supports zero-config, heavily optimized parallel builds with advanced caching.

Editor extension

Stacktape comes with a VS code editor extension to further improve developer experience with validation, autocompletion and built-in documentation.

Cost at scale

Firebase can get very costly very fast when you go out of the free tier.

Stacktape's Disadvantages

Smaller community

Being a new product, Stacktape doesn't have a large community yet.

Less pre-built capabilities for mobile apps

Stacktape doesn't come with purpose-built features for mobile apps.
