What is a Firestore GUI?

It is a graphical user interface for your Firestore database that allows users to interact with the database and manage data through a visual interface, instead of using a Firestore API or command line tools.

Why build a Firestore GUI instead of buying one?

Many companies want to build a custom Firesotre GUI instead of using Firebase Console or Fireadmin because:

  • A custom Firestore GUI can be customized for all unique requirements of the development team or the project, with features and functionality that match the team's workflow and development practices.

  • It is easier to integrate a custom Firestore GUI with other SaaS tools and any other datasources already in use by different teams in the company.

  • Custom GUIs built using low-code tools like Appsmith turn out to be more cost-effective than purchasing a commercial tool.

  • The development team gets complete control over the code and functionality of the tool, allowing for easy, ongoing maintenance, updates, and improvements as needed.

  • Development teams sometimes have specific technical requirements or constraints that are not met by existing Firestore GUI tools.

What are some challenges of building a Firestore GUI?

  • Engineering bandwidth: Giving your end-users CRUD and more capabilities they need to work with your data in a safe and secure way without increasing dependency on engineering resources.

  • UX and data analysis: Creating an intuitive, easy-to-navigate GUI that lets users get all the insights they need from the data is a difficult task without frontend and backend expertise on the team building the GUI.

  • Interoperability: The GUI should be able to work seamlessly or integrate with other tools and applications that are used in conjunction with the database.

  • Security: A GUI must ensure that data privacy and security and sensitive data should only be accessible to authorized users. Proper user authentication and authorization functionality can be challenging and time-consuming to build from scratch.
