  • Express-Powered API Handling: Express is the backend's core for efficient API management, providing a familiar structure for developers.
  • Optimized for Serverless Efficiency: The framework is fine-tuned for serverless operation, prioritizing performance and cost-effectiveness. It minimizes cold start times and utilizes Graviton 2 processors for cost savings.
  • Structured Codebase: A well-structured codebase promotes modularity and organization, simplifying maintenance.
  • Efficient API Packaging: APIs are efficiently packaged to prevent monolithic Lambda functions, ensuring high-performance and cost-effectiveness.
  • Environment Variable Management: Environment variables are centrally stored in AWS SSM, simplifying configuration management.
  • Authentication and Middleware: Middleware components provide authentication with Cognito, route logging, and admin role checks, enhancing functionality.
  • Local Development and Debugging: Robust local development tools facilitate API and DynamoDB emulation, debugging, and seamless environment variable configuration.
  • Deployment and Version Control: Deployment is streamlined with preconfigured commands, CloudFormation stack separation, and self-referential infrastructure. Version control supports collaboration and reproducibility.
  • Monitoring and Logging: Baseline includes monitoring via CloudWatch, tracking performance metrics and errors for operational transparency.
  • Scalability and Security: Automatic scaling, traffic throttling, IAM Role-based permissions, and DynamoDB data-at-rest encryption ensure backend resilience and security.
  • Point In Time Recovery: Support for Point In Time Recovery (PITR) for DynamoDB tables safeguards data integrity.
  • Serverless and Cost-Efficient: With serverless architecture, Baseline is cost-effective, costing close to nothing when not in use, eliminating server maintenance.
  • Customization and Extensibility: The codebase is designed for easy customization, allowing modification of any API component without hidden complexities.
  • AWS Integration and Infrastructure as Code: Integration with various AWS services is seamless through CloudFormation/Serverless Framework, reinforcing infrastructure as code principles.
