Your best bet is to use one of the following :
- Deployd : It basically lets you build APIs for your web and mobile apps very quickly.
- Firehose : Lets you create realtime apps with Backbone and Ember integrations.
- Socket.io : You can roll out your own solution with Socket.io.
- Atmosphere : Another nice solution.
- Hoodie : Haven't tried this, but heard good things about it.
CloudBoost: CloudBoost.io is the best alternative to Firebase.
With a plethora of great features such as search, cache,queue, push notifications, daily backup,offline sync,relation with docker support, slack integration for notifications in case of any event and the ability to push any file/image/music to it, CloudBoost gives us all we could ever wish for.
Not just this its Open Source too giving us the ability to use it the way we love to without worrying about vendor lock-in.
With CloudBoost app development is a breeze. You can checkout / contribute to open source offering here : CloudBoost/cloudboost.
Adding my Open Source Firebase alternative to this list, others have already covered the existing ones.

Strapi is a very interesting Open Source alternative for Firebase.
Because it is Open Source, you don't depend on a limited and proprietary SaaS.
It provides great built-in features (authentication, etc.) and an extensible admin panel to let you build APIs within minutes.
Take a look at the demo to discover Strapi: strapi.io/demo.
Check out backendless.com, a complete alternative for Firebase with a freemium plan. Includes object database with support for relations and SQL-based searches. Native SDKs for iOS, Android, .NET, JS as well as REST. Supports push notifications and pub/sub messaging. You can augment server-side logic with your own server-side code (in Java and JS) and you can develop your own API Services. There is integration with AWS Lambda and very nice developer console.
