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.


Did you have some alternatives in mind? What would you use?


firestore is awesome and easy to setup! but i would have probably done it with MongoDB atlas BUT doing the backend setup etc takes time which is def a down side


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


yeah I agree you can get a fullstack web app working in now time!! keep killing it
