When we started our adventure, we were using a self-hosted MongoDB instance and our backend on Google Cloud.
It was cheap. At least in initial costs. However, the cost of maintaining, scaling, monitoring, was not so cheap. Especially when we were seeing sudden traffic spikes that our MongoDB instance couldn't serve well.
🔥Since our recent switch to Firebase, we were able to ingest sudden traffic spikes without any issue, ANY! 🔥
We migrated all our MongoDB to Firebase. What's better? We got rid of our backend and use only the Firestore SDK along with the Firestore rules 🎉
Now that we have a solid use base, we are looking for ways to monetize our app, https://platetext.com, so we can continue to maintain, update and improve it.
Any suggestions are welcome!
