About this book

Appwrite is a secure end-to-end backend server for web, mobile, and Flutter developers that is packaged as a set of Docker containers for easy deployment. But how do you use it?

The Web Developer’s Ultimate Guide to Appwrite is the solution to your problems. It provides insights into the thought process and design choices of the Appwrite core team and explains how you can adopt these principles to build better applications.

In these pages, you’ll get insider insight into Appwrite, from the design philosophy to hidden gems such as the Locale and Avatar APIs. Everything you need to know is covered here: you’ll go from the basics of installing Appwrite and connecting it to your favorite platforms all the way to deploying your Appwrite server in production, with everything in-between. You’ll cover authentication strategies and Appwrite’s SDKs, the Appwrite Database and Cloud Functions, and more besides. With practical examples, you’ll not only get a unique insight, you’ll also implement what you learn as you go.

By the end of the book, you will be able to exploit the potential of Appwrite to build and scale applications without worrying about setting up a backend.
