soapbubble.online migration to Firebase
For a long time I hosted soapbble.online on a self-managed Kubernetes cluster I ran on some nodes at a local data center. One day I accidently pressed the wrong button and lost the ability to update the cluster with new releases. Because I was interested in trying out GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine) I spun up a new cluster there. Not worth it! It ended up being way more expensive and the performance was worse! I will be migrating my webhost from a GKE cluster to a free Firebase hosted solution. The upside is that my hosting bill goes from $125 per month to $0 per month. The downside is that old versions of the game will no longer work because I migrated the client code to connect directly to Firebase Firestore. I'll post updates here of new versions of the game when I have completed the migration
