hey @Links2004 I am using mqtt for esp-node.js server. I want to try streaming directly to firebase database from esp. Is it a good idea? Maybe it will eat firebase monthly traffic limits? Any advise? https://github.com/firebase/firebase-arduino/tree/master/examples/FirebaseStream_ESP8266 This example needs an update it is not working and i dont know how to use ESP8266HTTPClient.h with firebase

the linked lib uses the ESP8266HTTPClient already
https://github.com/firebase/firebase-arduino/blob/master/src/FirebaseHttpClient_Esp8266.cpp
firebase is a big cloud you can scale it to your needs, but I thinke its hard to hit the limits with a few clients.
I use GCM / FCM for sending notifications of events to browsers and android devices and never had any problems with it (via nodejs over XMPP).
