Exploring Upload Care as Effective Media Storage Over Xano's Limitations
In this meeting, the State Changers discussed the integration of Upload Care and Xano in handling media files for a web application. They considered the cost-efficiency and limitations of the two platforms. One participant suggested starting with Upload Care for file-management as it is easy to work with, especially for beginners. Despite potential costs in the long run, it is preferred over Xano's limited file storage and administration capabilities. Alternative solutions like Firebase storage from Google or S3 from Amazon were also brought up but have lesser tooling.
Furthermore, for managing data, they covered the importance of endpoints and the adoption of ad hoc endpoints owing to REST limitations. One participant reassured the other that having an endpoint exclusively for one action isn't wrong and could increase speed and efficiency when handling complex operations. The meeting concluded with participants expressing their intention to handle the highlighted issues. This session will be beneficial for those exploring file management technologies and understanding data management via endpoints.
