Using Google Cloud Firestore Database in R shiny

I want to learn about the best practices for using Google Cloud Firestore Database (not the realtime database) with shiny in R. As far as I understand, firebase admin SDK is not available for R (available for Python). This post shows using REST API to interact with a firestore database.

Specific questions as follows:

  • If the authentication of my app works with {firebase} package, what is the best way to create, modify and read user data based on their email?
  • Would you call python via {reticulate} to use the firebase_admin package or use REST API with R?

Thank you.
