When developer Călin Cara was approached to build a website to promote guided mountain bike, hiking and skiing tours in Transylvania, Romania, he jumped at the opportunity to build the site in React and Firebase. He’d been using Firebase as part of his career development courses, so it was a great opportunity for him to apply this knowledge on a real-world project.
Since his client was not a developer himself, and would need an interface to frequently manage content in Firebase, Călin knew he needed to find a solution that seamlessly integrated with Firebase to write, save and delete content in the Firebase database.
That’s when Călin found Flamelink, the Firebase CMS. With no coding experience, Călin’s non-developer client was easily on-boarded and found Flamelink to be pretty intuitive in what it does and how it works. This meant that once Călin showed his client what to do, he was able to run with it, making weekly content updates all by himself he was able to run with it with little to no input from Călin.
Flamelink gave Călin and his RideNow client an interface for any user (regardless of computer/technical experience) to manage content in Firebase. Călin found it really easy to set up and use and the best part of all, gave his client the ability to add and manage content all by themselves.
“Given how easy it was to set-up and configure, and how easily it accessed the Firebase storage, Flamelink feels like it’s part of the Google/Firebase ecosystem. The UI is professionally done and looks and feels like a Google product due to the Material Design components and thinking. I really liked how once I’d connected Flamelink and Firebase, I didn't need to do anything else, Flamelink writes, saves, deletes etc to Firebase for me.”
"I really like the way you can easily work with the interface of Flamelink (add content, text, pictures, etc) even if you are not a technical person. It is quite intuitive and customizable. One can clearly see that it is constantly updated and it is going in the right direction, trying to fulfill users' needs. Keep up the good work!"
