- Firebase is a cloud hosting for apps, and they have a free plan to get started. I think you can even use just store data in JSON. Could be good for bbox.
- Isotope JS is a gem for help with layouts.
- DataTables JS can help with showing data in the form of tables.
- Leaflet is a way to embed maps into a web page.
