Access a growing list of commun web applications helper functions.
We want StaticBackend to have a rich set of re-usable common functionalities for typical web applications. Now that the core pieces are there, we can bring you more value for your applications.
Some of those advanced features are only available from the server-side for security reasons. You have multiple options. You can have an effortless server-side application between your frontend app and StaticBacken. Or you might opt to use an existing function-as-a-service provider that calls StaticBackend API.
Here are the functionalities that are available today. Since we’re also using StaticBackend to build SaaS, we’re adding new functions as we encounter the need.
