This project offers a simple backend that handles user management, database, file storage, forms, real-time experiences via channel/topic-based communication, and server-side functions for mobile and web applications.
We can think of it as a lightweight Firebase replacement you may self-host. No vendor lock-in and your data stay in your control.

He is personally using it to build SaaS:
It can be used from the client-side and/or server-side.
