Congrats on your project! Out of curiosity, why did you decide to use Firestore and Algolia? Great tools tho, I'm asking because they can't get expensive fast.

Mostly because of how fast it is to integrate, since I have experience with both in the past, it was very easy to setup quickly without looking at any documentation.

Regarding the price, I find firestore's free tier to be more than enough for most side projects, same with algolia free tier
