I’m looking for advice on which backend language & framework to pick to implement user auth and GraphQL w/ custom business logic. I’ve built it in the past using Node.JS and manually setting up auth and SMS w/ Twilio, but I’m wondering whether there’s a faster way to do it these days (this was a few years ago).
I’m pretty open on the language, I’ve used many of the main languages in the past so I’m pretty flexible.
Ultimately, the backend stack will provide APIs (thinking GraphQL but open to suggestions) to mobile apps and a CMS.
Main criteria / bonus points are:
- Flexibility (will need to run business logic algos and machine learning / algos)
- Speed of implementation (how quickly I can get the basic things set-up and add new models / processes)
- Debuggability / Monitoring
- Security / Scalability
Thanks for reading 🙂
Built a backend stack previously using Node.JS and Twilio w/ Apollo for GraphQL and sequelize to interface with a Postgres DB.
