  1. Hello Vivian!
    To use firebase firestore do we need a blaze (pay as you go) account?? Some time ago I couln’t deploy my app because firebase says that I can only deploy if I change my free plan to blaze.

    P.D. I don’t change to blaze because I don’t have a credit/debit card

  2. You don’t need to be on Blaze plan to make use of firebase unless you are working with cloud functions or some other feature that requires a change in plan.

  3. Great example!!! Thanks a lot…
    Any tips of Firebase data model for sharing documents with different users fr viewing, editing?

  4. can u please tell me the linking of all these codes . And also where to put the code “getting actual data ” code and others afterward.

  5. Sadly I would not recommend this as a tutorial for newbies. Some of the code in the article is out of sync with what is on github, and the Firebase instructions are a bit incomplete. When I cloned the repository and tried to run it locally there were runtime errors that needed debugging – I think they were about having to call initializeApp before calling getAuth. But if you are a fairly experienced programmer it’s a pretty decent demo of using Firebase and building a text editor. For a guide to emulating the document and folder framework, I recommend the google drive clone youtube video by Web Dev Simplified.
