The secret sauce


  • When choosing between the Firebase version or the GCP version of tools, we tend to pick the Firebase version, as it's often simpler and nicer to work with.


  • App engine fills in the gaps in the increasingly smaller case where it's necessary for us to run our own APIs.


  • All comments, votes, and other actions live here as a highly-scalable, reliable, multi-region storage solution.


  • This is our primary database, though most of our actual data is stored in static storage. This database houses the metadata necessary for indexing and finding static data.


  • Certain events need to both happen asynchronously and also be guaranteed execution even in the face of errors. Pub/Sub accomplishes this miraculous feat.


  • Running background triggers based on events provides a simple, scalable way to create complex interactions.
