Firebase DevRel here — thank you for feedback the good (hosting!)

I have some of these frustrations as well, but I’m currently using Firebase in a decent size production app and still like it overall. My biggest pain with the database is not being able to grab a subsection easily, or being able to shallowly return a record.

Say I have keys [a, b, c, d, e] on record my_record. How long until I can get just a few of them with something like db.ref('my_record').child([a, c, e]).once('value', snap => ...)?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
