My Process For Building Fast

  1. 2

    Was looking at including a blog section for our site, thanks for the links to contentful and sanity (see vercel actually recommends them for integrations too).

    1. 1

      Glad it was helpful. Yeah - I think most people are not aware of these awesome headless CMS options and how well they work with JAMStack.

  2. 1

    Folks, please please please don't build your business on unstructured data stores and proprietary systems like Firebase or Mongo.

    If you want to move fast (and not break things) on the back end, use Supabase (Firebase alternative) or Hasura, which are on Postgres.

    1. 2

      I don't get it, you're saying avoid Firebase because it's not open source? Or just because it's not SQL.

    2. 1

      This is a lazy take. I hate NoSQL as much as the next hacker but that doesn't mean it does not have valid use cases and/or can't be used for initial prototyping.

      It comes down to your product and how and how often you will read/write data.
