Firebase is exactly the database for the devs that don't want to follow the full stack path.

What? Why? It gives you a full No-SQL database and serverless functions out of the box. It's a fully-managed full-stack setup. You CAN ignore the backend and just use the web libraries, but you can also build a full set of Flask or Express microservices on top. It's awesome.

I guess it's best but for beginners. And it make you a bit lazy too. You cannot understand backend completely until you endure the pains of setting it up manually. Thanks for your comment too.

If you are using a service (firebase) then you are a customer or end-user, not an administrator, and a full-stack is somebody that is a developer and an administrator at the same time.

However, I am not saying that you can't build a full system using a ready-made service.

Yeah most probably firebase users are beginners or novice devs.

Yeah. But it's good for beginners. The list contains projects which use MySQL and MongoDB as well. So, that makes sense I guess. To start with Firebase and then move on to conventional DBs.

Thanks for that tip man. I'm already familiar with SQL server and MongoDB so I wasn't too keen on learning yet another database.

Yes. These tutorials are for beginners. That's why I included Firebase, MongoDB and MySQL as well.
