This past month was interesting and quite busy for us - we got valuable feedback and contributions from our clients, fixed many bugs, released the Android client for Para and a new plugin for MongoDB. The number one request for this version was support for plugins and MongoDB. We’ve also updated the documentation of our open source backend framework and redesigned the landing page on paraio.org. The docs should now look even better on mobile devices with high-DPI displays.
We’re happy to announce the release of Para v1.17. Last week we pushed the new version to Maven and now it’s also deployed on ParaIO.com, our hosted backend service.
Let’s compare some modern open source backend frameworks that are available today. These frameworks handle the server-side operations of your website or app. Developers use them to build and iterate on products faster than ever before by focusing on the “fun” part - the frontend (client-side). This blog post will be a comparison between open source frameworks only and does not aim to cover all backend services on the market.
We’re busy developing and running our own backend SaaS called Para (https://paraio.com). If you are a developer looking for a simple and scalable backend service, make sure you follow us and try our developer plan - it’s free!
