Firebase is a mobile development platform which provides a comprehensive set of backend services like database, storage, user authentication, analytics and crash reporting. The realtime database feature of Firebase allows developers to store data in realtime. All the data is stored as JSON documents.Firebase has two different types of databases. Firestore and Realtime Database.Firestore is a non-relational database and it is used for storing large amounts of structured data especially for mobile or web applications. Compared to firestore, realtime database is much simpler and easier to use.
