Is React ➕ Firebase the perfect combo?

Am just learning React js and am wondering if React and Firebase are the right pick for my projects going forward. What do y'all think?

Do you mean React + using Firebase to store data? I'm no database pro, but that's what Andrew Mead chose for his React class and I liked working with it.

Exactly, React using firebase as a backend.

I'm working specifically with react native for a mobile app, firebase has been great to work with in development so far.

I have built an open-source project using React and Firebase. They work quite well together.

I am using Firebase authentication for user sign-in. It's very simple to enable social single-in. Some strange rules that favour Google login though.

I am also using Firestore to save some basic user information and activity logs.
