In this article by Manoj Waikar , author of the book Data-oriented Development with AngularJS , we will learn a brief description about various types of persistence mechanisms, local versus hosted databases, what Firebase is, why to use it, and different use cases where Firebase can be useful. We can write web applications by using the frameworks of our choice—be it server-side MVC frameworks, client-side MVC frameworks, or some combination of these. We can also use a persistence store (a database) of our choice—be it an RDBMS or a more modern NoSQL store. However, making our applications real time (meaning, if you are viewing a page and data related to that page gets updated, then the page should be updated or at least you should get a notification to refresh the page) is not a trivial task and we have to start thinking about push notifications and what not. This does not happen with Firebase.
