Figuring Out Front-End Driven Apps

Figuring Out Front-End Driven Apps

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,, 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.
