I've been trying to deal with migrating data in a Firebase database, and it's come down to exporting the data to JSON and searching through it with ripgrep and jq. Not ideal! And I've had to deal with entries missing "required" props, and entires that have keys with typos, etc. Luckily our dataset is still small enough that this is practical, but none of this work would be required if our product had been built on a SQL database in the first place (I wasn't around when that choice was originally made).
