I want to develop a mobile app with Cloud Firestore as backend. It's good until I realize need to implement FullTextSearch, and Firestore doesn't support it natively. Although they advise to use Algolia but at this time I'm not willing to pay for it.

Therefore, I'm thinking about using the built-in tool from Google Cloud. Since this app is online-only, the offline & sync are not a top priority, so how about use Google Cloud SQL? Or, do you recommend any stack for me? Thanks for your advice.

I am building a platform for a health provider using Vue.js with Cloud Firestore and Cloud Functions for Firebase. Some of the app features are: Video chat, Chat 1 to 1 Payment - using Stripe Mange clients - CRM

I am debating whether to stay with Cloud Firestore and Cloud Functions for Firebase as my backend (using ExpressJS) I built it in a way that will be easy to change to Rest API with other DB, but not sure if I want to keep using Firestore

To use Cloud Firestore as a data layer to have a fully managed and distributed noSQL database with no need to manage replicas, disc space or sharding has proven to be a very good idea. We're a small startup and need to focus all time on development. Being hampered by managing the data layer when growing is something we can now avoid.

Goal/Problem: A small mobile app (using Flutter ) for saving data offline ( some data offline) and rest data need to be synced with Cloud Firestore Tools: Cloud Firestore , SQLite Decision/Considering/Need suggestions: There is no state management in the app yet. There is a requirement to store some data offline and it should be available easily (when the phone is offline) and some data needs to stored in the cloud. I am considering using sqlflite for phone storage and firestore to sync and manage the online database. I am using flutter to build the app, I couldn't find a reliable way to use firestore cache for reading the data when phonphone is offline. So I came up with the above solution. Please suggest is this good?
