These takes the "old" Firebase approach of a pure JS client (or
Android/iOS with SDK).
In general I don't like the "Firebase" approach of a huge JSON tree as
your database, nor how it merges changes (PATCH/PUT).
Firestore [1] seems to orient everything to a Collection based NoSQL
approach (ala MongoDB).

I want something I can access from Pharo, at least via a REST API.
Although I'm biased to choose RDBMS (and SQL).
