In stead of storing data for each individual block, we store it once, and use it many times later.Here's an example:We store the data for each type of block in the info branch. We would want to download this branch to a local variable, because we will be using it a lot. We also want to have an event listener listening for changes, and it would update the local variable accordingly.Using some super cheaty methods, I downloaded your entire database and did some simple find and replace actions and got it down to roughly 1/4 of the original size.When you push an array to firebase, it turns the array indices into keys. This is awesome, because a bunch of 1 or 2 digit keys is much smaller than a bunch of 16 digit keys. All in all, I got the data down to 1/16 of the original size (not all of the methods were shown in the picture)
