Anyone using Cloud Firestore yet ?

The title says it all, I see examples for Android and iOS with native tools but nothing so far for Xamarin.
Thanks in advance for any information you have to share.

    I might play around with it. I wish the Firebase Xamarin libraries were more "supported." Have you had any luck?

    I see the Xamarin Firebase APIs getting some attention... can't find any release notes or documentation though. Perhaps the main contributor can enlighten us?

    Looks like Google is developing a .NET API for Firestore at the GoogleCloudPlatform github. (GoogleCloudPlatform/google-cloud-dotnet)

    I am starting to use the Firestore library provided by Google: GoogleCloudPlatform/google-cloud-dotnet

    The problem I am having is setting the credentials.

    I need to set the following environment variable: GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS

    But I can't find an example for Xamarin on how to do that.

    has anyone managed to work with this library ?

    never mind, for now the Google Library doesn't work on Xamarin

    I've been using firebase anonymous auth to get tokens to verify my users with my backend without a problem. Unfortunately that's the extent of my firebase use
