Instant is the graph-based successor to Firebase.

If you want to make apps like Notion, Figma, or Linear, you invariably need to solve three problems:

Offline-Mode: Users want your app working even during poor connections.

You write a relational query, and we handle the rest. It's early. To find out what's done and how, you can read this essay. Or try it out right now!
