  1. Dart is not currently supported in Cloud Functions, so developers need to use more than one language in their code base. Here are some pain points they shared with the Firebase product team about this gap:
    - They need to learn another language, and many of them do not have the same expertise in JavaScript as they do in Dart.
    - The lack of features and tools, such as Hot Reload and Hot Restart, impacts development speed.
    - Developers cannot share business logic and data models across the entire stack.
    - Developers cannot use frequently used Dart packages on the…

  2. Swift is a much beloved and popular language for writing apps on the Apple platforms, but increasingly, it is also being used server side and even for writing cross platform business logic on Android and on Windows.

    Being able to share models and business logic between your clients and server would be an amazing productivity boost. And being able to develop in a language that focuses on safety would eliminate categories of issues that can exist if you develop in say Javascript or Typescript.

  3. 1st gen cloud functions can access auth info via context.auth as described here: https://firebase.google.com/docs/database/extend-with-functions?gen=1st#accessing_user_authentication_information

    But 2nd gen cloud functions is yet to have the same function.

  4. Functions is behind paywall, (it is still free for some limit in Blaze plan), but IF i upgrade to Blaze, then Cloud Storage, Hosting etc starts to charge right away, even in free plan they have free limits but once switched to Blaze it starts to charge. So to get free Functions, i have to pay cloud storage and hosting and more.

    For any playground project that is not gonna hit market or earn money, how i am supposed to try/learn functions? This forces me to move away from platform

  5. It is currently already possible to create google cloud tasks. However, this could be better integrated by creating an abstraction for queues, for example, which can also be monitored and controlled via the admin console and firebase emulator.

  6. Go is much more efficient than Python or Js and should be the obvious choice for backend where performance is crucial

  7. It's a pain to have to configure a process to watch and transpile TypeScript files to use in the emulator. Firebase CLI should have built-in support for it both in the emulator (with automatic watching, or on-the-fly transpilation as I showed here https://github.com/firebase/firebase-tools/issues/5633#issuecomment-1622585432) and when deploying.

  11. Currently using 2nd gen cloud functions requires having the default Compute Engine Service Account and there is no way to use custom service account.

    Not all projects have the service account or have any means to re-create the default SA if it has been deleted at some point and using default service accounts is anyway something that is not recommended by Google. So currently not all can move to using 2nd gen cloud functions unless support for using custom SA is added.

  12. To implement userfriendly generative AI applications it is import to stream data produced by LLMs back to the users browser. Firebase currently buffers all content and only returns when data is complete. Is the firebase team planning to implement this?

  13. In this code await admin.auth().createUser({
    email: email,
    displayName: name,
    uid: uid,
    emailVerified: false,
    password: password,
    disabled: false,
    });, if email and password are created, please create the user via that login method and if only phone is provided and no email, then let the user be created via phone auth. So that later on, when they try to sign in via phone auth, the system doesn't create a whole new user with a new uid but just lets the user sign into that account

  14. An article and youtube video explains how to optimize cold boots by updating dependencies to 'commonly used versions' as this will increase the chance that the dependencies can already be found in the 'dependencies cache'.

    https://medium.com/@duhroach/improving-cloud-function-cold-start-time-2eb6f5700f6

    This is quite vague and a bit hard to reason about. Would it be possible to see a list of package names and version info for all packages in the dependencies cache?

  15. It would be awesome with some kind of helper built on memcache to allow rate limiting on user defined parameters.

    E.g. if I build a webservice that can access an 'account' concept that I have modelled with some kind of access token I have modelled, then it would be nice to add rate limiting rules for either the specific access token or the entire account.

  17. Right now it is only possible to write functions in main.py, which very quickly gets overwhelmingly large. It would be good to be able to organize code into multiple files.

  18. With Firebase, you can have real time listeners on Firestore documents, which allow to have your UI in sync with your data.

    But when you ship logic in an app, you lose control over it.

    If you want to be able to update that logic after shipping, you place it in the backend (Cloud Functions), but then you lose real time updates.
    It would be amazing to have functions that can fire real-time events based on Firestore updates.

    So the flow would be:
    - There is an update in a Firestore document (or potentially other triggers like pub/sub, analitycs, etc.)…

  20. Allow for deployments to be either a green or blue deployment to be able to have multiple instances of the same functions deployed within a single Firebase project.

    This would help cover the gap of time between releases of client apps and Cloud Functions, which if not handled correctly cause production issues.
