Another possibility is to use the firebase firestore unique user ID instead of generating user API keys. Maybe this way there would be no need for using the firestore database.
Either way, this logic seems ok if it was a single user. But since it is a website theme file it is possible that every users website will get thousands of customer visits per day. Thus every customer that visits the clients site will trigger an authentication check with firebase with the clients email and API. So every user account on Firebase could potentially have thousands or maybe even hundred of thousands of logins and database queries everyday (depending on how popular their website is). So this is the part Im worried about.
Anyone have similar experience using Firebase for website theme authentication? Perhaps I am going about it all wrong here. Or maybe Firebase is just the wrong tool for this job.
Appreciate any input!
