What is the firebase cost for indiehackers ?


I read that IH uses firebase for the backend. Roughly what can be the cost expected for a site like IH. I am thinking of using firestore and other services for my project.

    Depends entirely how you code things! I pay a few hundred dollars per month, but could easily pay more or less if the site was architected differently.

      Do you use firestore or realtime database ??
      How did you figure out your firestore rules ???
      What resources did you use for architecting IH ??

      Love the website.

        I use the RTDB unfortunately. Firestore wasn't out when I started IH. Haven't used any resources or advanced planning, really. I just figure things out as I go and make adjustments.

          Thanks allen, I am doing the same...
