The documentation for OneDB is at docs.one-db.org
Connect your frontend to the cloud. For free, forever.
OneDB is an open source decentralized backend - it handles user authentication, data storage, and validation, so you can focus on creating a beautiful user interface.
Anyone can host a OneDB instance, and end-users can decide where they want to store their data. This means end-users have complete control and ownership over their data. And by utilizing the existing network of OneDB instances, you can deploy your app for free, forever.
We provide a OneDB instance at
one-db.datafire.io which is free for developers. End-users can
store up to 10MB of data before getting charged.
This repository contains:
./server: The OneDB NodeJS server
./apps: A few sample applications
Build an App
Building apps on OneDB is free and easy. Just create a data model, write your frontend, and the existing network of OneDB instances will take care of all the data validation and storage.
If you build an app, let us know and we'll add you to the list of OneDB apps
Host an Instance
The full documentation for hosting an instance is on docs.one-db.org
Help us expand the OneDB network by hosting an instance. You'll need:
- A server to host OneDB
- The OneDB server (this repository)
- A MongoDB instance
If you host a public instance, let us know and we'll add you to the list of known hosts
Installation and Setup
Install the server:
npm install -g onedb-cli
Create your settings in
mongodb: "mongodb://localhost:27017" jwtSecret: "thisisasecret" host: "https://onedb.example.com"
And start the server:
onedb serve --port 3000
