Top Backends for Your Web Project: A Comprehensive Guide

In application development and web development, choosing the right backend is crucial for the success of your project. In this article, we'll explore various backend tools based on our agency's experience, evaluating their advantages and limitations to help you make the best decision according to your specific needs.

Google Sheets

Google Sheets is a popular tool due to its simplicity and accessibility. However, it's not a true backend. It's useful for the development of static projects where data doesn't require frequent modifications.


Notion is known for its user-friendly interface, especially in environments where users are already familiar with the platform. Despite this, its use as a backend is limited due to the restriction of its API and automation capabilities.



Coda positions itself as an intermediate, more professional option, offering advanced capabilities for handling databases and automations. Although less known in Spain, it's extremely useful for the development of medium-scale projects.


Airtable comes highly recommended for most development projects due to its combination of ease of use and power. It allows easy modifications by users and offers a wide range of functionalities. It is extensively used by our agency for its innovation and versatility.


Xano is ideal for projects requiring high scalability and robustness. Very professional and advanced, it is a powerful tool that allows you to create backends without writing code, perfect for complex applications. We also use it extensively at Minimum for more complex database projects.


Firebase is useful for projects needing a highly scalable backend, especially those developed in Flutter Flow. However, its non-relational nature can be a complication.


Summary and Recommendations

To help you choose the right tool, here's a summary

  • Firebase: Highly scalable backend for Flutter Flow.
  • Google Sheets: For static and simple information.
