Batteries included backends

So I’ve been working on learning a new backend stack to follow through on some ideas I want to code out and it turns out there are quite a lot of batteries included offerings out there (sometimes referred to as BaaS offerings). Many of them are similar to Firebase in that they bundle data, storage and AA(authentication/authorization) and other useful bits together with slick management interfaces. All of these offer a relatively quicker path to get up and running with a app by bundling features together for a backend. I’m researching them so I thought I’d share what I’ve found.

I’m going to stick with the obviously somewhat open source ones here:

Some that are open source license ambiguous, not that I’m one to judge.

Some of these are actually wrappers for other services and applications of the same type but with different visions, offerings, [ENTER SOME SUCH DISTINGUISHING FEATURE HERE].

And some are more simply ORM like middleware offerings. No batteries included, but sometimes you don’t need batteries cause you’re working with anti-matter or something. I’ll again stick with the apparently open source offerings that include PostgresDB here.
