I have very little experience with backend and I’m kind of trying to figure out this whole authentication thing.
After reading the Realm platform documentation, it seems like Realm provides very basic authentication. My understanding is that it only supports username/password login without any extra features. My first question is what am I missing on if I don’t implement custom authentication? What are those extra features?
My second question is related to custom authentication. Do I need an independent server for that or can I just code it in Realm cloud?
Finally, if I need an auth server, what are my best options considering I have a tight budget? Auth0 is too expensive.
Any help would be appreciated.
