🗄🔧 Firebase + GCP Cloud Functions #21
My most favorite backend as a service!
Personally I am a fan of VueJS and hence by extension VueFire, but that or AngularFire/ReactFire would be for the front end right?
I was thinking of implementing the backend API with a thin GCP Cloud Functions layer backed by Firebase. Since the spec backend API won't be supported out of the box by Firebase.
Btw, I am fairly new to GCP and backend work, but thought this would be a great way to teach myself. Also this is a such a great idea, thanks to you and the team for setting it up. It seems a natural progression from TodoMVC for the full stack!
I hadn't even considered GCP Cloud + Firebase for hosting the backend API — that's an excellent idea. Wanna fork the starter repo and post the link back here so folks can watch/fork your work?
No sweat about being a newbie to GCP/backend btw, this whole project is just one giant learning exercise for all of us and we're all here to help each other :) Thank you for the kind words + jumping in to help expand this project!

I just discovered this realworld project and started looking for firebase related projects and found this one. However, this is using Google Cloud Functions directly instead of using Firebase Cloud Functions (which run on top of GCF). Would it be out of scope if I created a parallel project using Firebase Cloud Functions to show the tools and patterns used for those? I think I could also contribute to some of the missing pieces here.
hi @doowb Firebase really shines when used as a Fullstack implementation, since it has mature JS APIs that plugin directly into the frontend codebase. Would you be interested in starting a new Firebase full stack repo? If so you can send a PR linking it here:
