Created a web app template built with Nuxt.js, Vue.js, Node.js that scales from the infinitely-near-free platform services of Firebase, SendGrid, and Heroku and more. The Finisher Studio is based on best-of-class web application service providers like Firebase, SendGrid and Heroku that all offer generous INDEFINITELY FREE accounts, so that you can go from incubating your app with $ZERO on the free plans to scaling up to a web app of literally hundreds of servers, serving hundreds of thousands of users, sending millions of emails; all with a credit card, a few clicks, a few configuration file entries, a few minor template changes, but no changes to existing code.
