Firebase or API Call?


I need to embark on a mobile dating app project.

And I hesitate between using Firebase for my database, or using a database under Mysql, and making calls to an internal API to retrieve the data.

And I don’t see a reason to use Firebase. I await your feedback

Thank you !

I recently built an e-com website where we used MongoDB instead of Firebase, I mean we did use firebase just for auth service, and then for everything else we outsourced to MongoDB. it is optimized for speed and quite similar to firebase in terms of document type [schema-Less]. If you thinking of geolocation then I think MongoDB is a better choice than MySql as an alternative to firebase…
