I am prototyping an android app which is currently entirely offline. The prototype uses a device-local database with an ORM to access its data (I really dislike the manual sql thing in vanilla android). The app itself is offline (the complexity is similar to a ‘Notes’ application).
The next step would be to evaluate how the synchronization could be achieved. The sync should be done between multiple android devices.
Everything that is done in the app locally should be synced with the server but does not need to be real-time. The scenario where a user never syncs the data is entirely plausible.
I’ve evaluated Google’s firebase (specifically Cloud Firestore) which is pretty interesting but their online-sample code does work offline (despite their emphasis that offline capabilities are hassle free).
Regarding basically every aspect (cost, maintenance, etc) I am thinking what a proper solution would be in my case. Having two entirely different database technologies is somewhat odd as you would need to manage both worlds and also a translation layer. (As a side note: no code of the prototype is going to be reused so initial (refactored) development will be done in any case.)
Having firebase is quite impressive as it avoids the cost of maintaining a server technology or rolling out a handmade database server with manual auth, rest, etc). Firebase is just a placeholder of all those available cloud DBAs (micrsoft, amazon, google, etc).
Relying entirely on offline capabilities of a cloud infrastructure for a “never sync” scenario does on the other side not feel very good because if you never going to sync, you essentially work offline on a “stalled cache” of data for ever, for which a cloud database is rarely designed for.
Do I oversee some important aspects or a technology I am not aware off? Any insight is welcome 🙂
