Light your app on fire

OpenFire is an Open Source Database & Backend Engine. Use our JavaScript SDK to connect your web services directly to the server, and interact with your objects immediatly and realtime!

Choose your DB

You can just pick a database you like to work with and OpenFire will put it's data inside it. Chose the wrong database for your project? Switching databases is no problem! Just want to play? OpenFire runs without a database by default!

Fast to read - Fast to write

OpenFire holds some very clever algorithms under it's belt, and stores objects in highly optimized fragments. Combined with realtime, serial data transfer, reading as well as writing objects wil be incredibly fast.

Realtime Data Sync

OpenFire supports full-blown realtime data pushes that is significantly faster than communicating trough HTTP. User have a older browser like IE7 or some crappy browser like that? Fine, then we use long-polling!

Try me, yeey! 0 people are trying with you!
