Looking to Partner Up April 27, 2019

I'm giving away Hosted GraphQL BaaS envs, built for busy frontend devs! Would you like one ? 🎁

Kamal @kim0

After lurking at IH for almost a year, I decided to get my act together and release something out there!

GQLEngine is a hosted graphql backend-as-a-service based on the Hasura engine. What's great about that engine, is that it's designed to be plugged into your frontend code and you have fully functioning app, without writing a single line of backend code. Assuming you don't need complex logic on the backend, that's all you'll ever need! Rejoice React/Gatsby/Flutter fans 😁

I have only built https://demo.gqlengine.com where with one click, you can deploy (in ~3 mins) a postgresql DB + graphql baas and get your own unique environment URL/password secured with https ..etc. You can launch many environments for free (please don't abuse!). I have NOT built a website yet (talk about early launches :)

Questions:

  • How can I make gqlengine the best BaaS hosting platform for your needs?
  • Would you consider using gqlengine today? Please share why/why-not ?

PS: I am #looking-for-cofounder in marketing. Ping me if interested and have previous experience with SAAS apps (preferably for developers!)

Thanks IH for everything you have shared. I'm loving that community ❤️

    Cool, I am working on something similar at nhost.io. https://www.indiehackers.com/product/nhost-io

    I am planning on going live within a few weeks :)

    How has your release been so far?

    Great!!!. Have you thought about competing in the sharepoint space?

      mm sorry for being late to reply, but can you explain more how is sharepoint related to graphql ? Why do you think sharepoint is a good business move ? Thanks for any insights you share!

    Looks cool. You will be competing vs some very tough competitors.

    I think I would need to be able to store functions to be able to use it. Triggered by database changes I guess.

    If you need help with a landing page let me know :)

      Hey thanks .. glad you like it. Which competition do you have in mind ?
      If you mean firebase, I think this solution will have price advantage as well as avoiding lockin.

      Can you let me know what parameters do you look for when choosing something like that ?
