What BaaS to choose for HTML5 application

The term backend as a service or BaaS is currently mentioned a lot among mobile application developers.

Multiple storage options exists for HTML5 applications, like the local storage or filesystem. But these will only allow application to store data locally, on the mobile device.

If your mobile app has to store data outside the device, in order to sync across different platforms for example, application creators have to make a decision on how this will be achieved.

One option is to build a simple backend service which could handle requests from mobile application running on multiple mobile clients and provide data storage functionality.

This usually sounds easier then it is to implement, because while building such backend service you have to take many factors into account. Authorisation and authentication, performance and operations support among many others.

Great OAuth tutorials for HTML5 applications

Applications we build are more and more dependent on 3rd party data sources. And as Internet of things continues to grow, this fact becomes even more stronger.

It allows us to create great experiences for the app end users by presenting them data gathered from across the Internets. But at the same time we have to spend more time ensuring that our applications are consuming all this data securely and they only get access to the data they need. OAuth protocol was designed and developed for this exact reason.
