Fullstack projects are distinguished by a single Backend supplemented by one or numerous Frontends. This configuration allows developers to append additional Frontends per their project needs.
Starting a Project
8base allows users to jumpstart projects either by leveraging accelerators as a groundwork or embarking from a clean slate. Both approaches provide a robust framework to construct feature-intensive applications.
Jumpstart with Accelerators
Accelerators are productivity-enhancing templates designed to fast-track the application development lifecycle. Fullstack projects present the opportunity to harness these Accelerators for a streamlined development journey.
Build from Scratch
If you're a developer yearning for absolute control over your projects, you have the option to architect Fullstack projects from scratch. This method provides a spectrum of ready-to-use Integrated Authentication alternatives:
- In-App Authentication: Allows the application to control and manage the entire authentication process. This option is ideal for tailored experiences.
- Hosted Authentication: Facilitates seamless integration with minimal setup via a cloud-hosted authentication interface, maintained and secured by 8base.
- DIY Authentication: Offers developers the freedom to design their authentication process from the ground up.
Backend Only projects consist exclusively of a Backend. These projects serve as a powerful Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) tool. Notably, these projects can be transformed into Fullstack projects by adding Frontends as needed.
Backend (and Fullstack) projects reap the benefits of:
- A fully scalable server-less GraphQL API.
- A fully managed MySQL Database, hosted on AWS (Aurora MySQL).
- Preconfigured app services (Authentication, Authorization, File Storage, and more)
All 8base projects are managed via the 8base Management Console, a secure web portal requiring an 8base account and a modern web browser. Projects benefit from scalable server-less GraphQL API, fully managed MySQL Database hosted on AWS, and additional app services like Authentication, Authorization, File Storage, all supported by the 8base team and community.
