I’m a backend developer working mostly with Django and DRF for my backends, I decided to make de jump to mobile and built a simple catalog app for an MLM team using Parse as my backend.
Now I’m planning on building something a bit bigger, it’s an event (as in parties, meetings, etc) handling apps, to handle logistics at a given event an insights on previus events, best speakers, what kind of events drive more people, etc…
I was wondering what are Parse’s or Firebase’s limitations, I really don’t know much about them, but when is a project ‘big’ or ‘custom’ enough that I need to say, “Ok, I need to build my own back-end with Django Rest Framework”.
I’m going to be handling SQL-like relationships with the data, like many to many and foreignKey stuff. Also I’m going to need to add a payments provider, can’t use Stripe or Paypal since I’m in Colombia, so it will have to be one of those nonAPI using web checkouts
Thanks in advance for your inputs on this.
