I’m running into a problem, for which I think the best solution is to use a cloud database such as Firebase.
Somehow, some way, I got Postgres running in Docker on my Mac several months ago, with which I’ve been developing without issue. However, I’ve been trying to get it set up on another computer, and it’s failing every time. Seems like the database server is simply not running locally. It’s the same problem for two Macs other than the one working Mac. Whatever the problem is, I’m running out of time to solve it and so I’m looking for other solutions.
If I could get a database running in the cloud for local development, maybe in production though I’m unsure exactly, then the problem of setting it up on other computers would be fixed. If this needs to be put on another computer in the future for whatever reason, then the database would not be a concern. It would also simplify development between multiple machines when it comes to the database.
I’m aware that, to some degree, the database URLs are hardcoded in. But would it work somehow to use a cloud database (like Firebase), even if it requires changing some hardcoded values?
