Mavo's launchIt's hard to believe sophomore year is over! One of my favorite parts of this year was working on the Mavo framework, a project from the Haystack group (MIT CSAIL), with Lea Verou.
Mavo is still very much under active development (and the beta was released only a couple weeks ago!) You can find the gitter chats here! Lea also wrote an article introducing Mavo here.
Firebase backend pluginI implemented and wrote tests for a Firebase backend plugin (see a list of all Mavo plugins so far here). Before, Mavo supported storage abstractions for local storage, Github, and Dropbox. The Firebase backend extends the Mavo storage model, including publicly updatable storage, publicly readable and user-only writeable storage, and many other possible permission models.
If you want to add your own Mavo backend, check out the docs I wrote and let me know if you have any questions! (Warning: docs are changing frequently - if the link is broken, please let me know!)
