If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 50 alternatives to Firebase and many of them are available as a self-hosted solution so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Self-Hosted alternatives to Firebase are Etebase, Appwrite, Prisma GraphQL API and Backendless.

    Firebase is mainly a Web Analytics Service but alternatives to it may also be Game Development Tools or Cloud Storage Services. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Firebase.
