Nice article. I've been using the Firebase Realtime database for a while - I know it well now, and quite like it (though the securiy rules are crap too). Thinking of switching to Cloud Firestore for my lastest project since it's newer, and supposedly better. Do you think it's worth making the switch?

That you'd have to figure out yourself, I'm afraid. Personally, I would only switch if I had specific features in mind. Otherwise, they are too similar to bother migrating, especially if your app already works with Realtime.

The docs have a good guide on Firestore and Realtime:

Yeah, I won't change the existing projects, but I'll probably try Firestore on a new one. Thanks.
