As front-end developers, we have an incredible opportunity to create awesome experiences with tools Firebase and Hoodie. I wanted to show just how much we can do without any knowledge of the server-side code using a Backend as a Service.
I created a simple CRUD app with realtime data syncing and user authentication using Firebase and then the same app with Hoodie. You can check out all the code on my GitHub, https://github.com/HipsterBrown/FDA-demos, and see how simple it really is. Both apps took me roughly two days to get all that functionality.
I'm available on Twitter, @hipsterbrown, or via a pull request on the repo for any questions or discussion.
