Don't worry though, I've pinged my supprt and they will try to fix me up! :technologist: Perhaps try again in 15mins?

Hello @justcode123 , from what I see Amplication is a microservice framework where refine is a frontend library.

You can check our documentation here: https://refine.dev/docs/ and no, I never heard of Amplication before.

Hi there I am familiar with Amplication they offer a tool that (among others) allows you to build a CRUD backend REST or GraphQL they auto generate a NestJS backend with via a nice UI or CLI my project useGenerated.com is similar in a sense that is a CLI that generates a GraphQL NestJS App. the CRUD GraphQL is much more powerful (IMO) I am working on a data provider between useGenerated and refine. I'm almost done. after that I was considering writing a data provider for Amplication as well but I cannot promise anything. @justcode123 (forgot to tag) I have been following the website of Amplication and in recent months they seem to have shifted focus on building that backend also as microservices. as @batuhanw noticed

Like how? I found over 3 issues/problems on their docs., that completely messed up creating a app. They criticized me and blamed me for finding out the info

IDK as I said I am not affiliated in any way with them. I know what they are doing from their website for a while since my GraphQL backend creator(useGenerated.com) is in the same space.

Using refine for frontend, what is a good API backend? Thank you. I’m liking Refine. In your opinion, is Supabase or PlanetScale better?

@justcode123 I do not know your specific needs, also I did not try other integrations with backend, just the basic GraphQL one and the one I am building. All of them seem to be working well. Maybe the core team can tell you if one has less bugs, better docs etc. As in general for the backends I see Supabase often used. I did not hear much of the PlanetScale. I'm more a developer than into the low-code. I do hear a lot of good stuff about Hasura.
