Hi, @ashleemboyer ! Nice the way you make things so simple. I've seen many bloated solutions around.

Just one question: why did you choose real-time database instead of Cloud Firestore? I ask this cause I was giving a first look at this stack yesterday and documentation says Firestore is the preferred choice.

Thanks for the post, looking forward for the next parts of the series!

Hey, Marcelo! Thank you for your question. The answer is that I’ve always used the Real-time Database in my projects with Firebase. I have multiple years of experience with it and am used to it. I’d love to take a deeper dive into the Firestore implementation one of these days! 😌
