Discussion on: Why I switched away from Google Firestore

Good questions.

MongoDB is a great choice for database. It's open-source, has better support for NoSQL relationships and such than firestore, and I overall have liked working w/ it in the past. If you like it go for it!

I'm now rolling Hasura w/ Postgres as my database. I don't write resolvers I just use the CRUD operations that Hasura exposes. If I need to do something more complex I can use Hasura "Views" (which you might be interested in), so likely I won't need to write resolvers for a while (maybe ever).

Postgres has JSON storage which is a pretty great feature about it.

Never used NewSQL, sorry! I'll check it out though.
