Secure User Authentication Service

Most apps require user authentication. Skygear provides a secure user authentication service out-of-the-box that can be integrated with your microservices or cloud functions seamlessly. Save time reinventing the wheel!

Extensive Services Marketplace

There will be more out-of-the-box services to come: push notifications, real-time chatroom and CMS. These are common functions required by most apps and it is our vision to free developers from writing similar logic all over again and again.

Say GoodBye to Vendor Lock-in

The least thing developers want is vendor lock-in. We learnt from the experiencnes of the shut down of Parse and we decide to open source Skygear from day 1. Developers are given the freedom to migrate from the Skygear platform anytime.

You can use the open source community edition for free. If you do not want the hassle to manage the servers, you can also subscribe to the Skygear cloud services.

How is Skygear different from other serverless solutions?

We strive to bring serverless to app development. While most serverless solutions focus just on the ease to deploy serverless workloads, we intead focus on reinventing the backend development experiences and provide an integrated app development ecosystem for developers.
