I don’t think just using an extra server is a great idea as it adds more overhead, not everyone…

Hey Appie, really good point. Increased overhead would have been worth mentioning as part of the tradeoff for reduced vendor lock-in.

I don’t think there’s a good tutorial on how to set up a simple Node.js/Firebase backend so might put something together myself and link to it from this article.

Thanks for the feedback!
