There is a better way to offer Backend as a Service. What do you think ?
My team and I are working on an open-source backend as a service framework for all major frameworks called Devless.
Backend as a service is rapidly growing and multi-stakeholder market opportunity. Parse’s recent closure has led to countless customer complaints and blog posts exposing vendor lock-in and minimal customization options for the current BaaS platforms available to developers.
At Devless we conceived the concept of an open-source framework with BaaS features (Rest-endpoints generation, user management, business logic sandbox, Documentation, DB adaptors, Email) shipped as a package or a gem which a developer can plug and play into their existing projects and take full advantage of Devless. The concept is similar to Spark (laravel), with our base framework providing modules in the form of plug-ins to ease and expedite development which is our core value.
We have also considered allowing Developers to write code native to their install say ruby or php but the caveat to that is the inability to port.
We would love to hear your thoughts and feedback.
