i was studying about noSQL patterns and stuff, and reading about firebase / firestore…
i studied a bit of hierarchical and understand that Materialized Path is the best one… (kind of nesting things as firestore suggests)
also i was reading in forums that firestore actually cant query on subcollections…
said that im lost, and want to ask a couple of questions about all this new stuff:
1 - i didnt get really what firestore means with subcollection “links”, since sometimes it seems like just normal objects.
2 - when google engineer said in a forum that actually firestore dont “query” on subcollections, what he meant? with query? some restriction? and normal filtering? im asking that because there´´s an option on firestore api to search in all children collections
3 - independently of my “1 and 2 questions”, how i would use algolia? indexing each item of subcollection too, like in a flat index? or there´s some strategies? i read on algolia manual that i can implement cloud functions to update each item, so at the end it becames a flat index?
thanks for now…!!!
