Hi! I'm trying to decide whether to go with Firebase for user authentication or with the Ktor features, namely Sessions and Authentication (JWT). However, I haven't been able to find some good guides on Firebase Admin and Ktor integration, which makes it harder to go down that route. But at the same time, I'm and Android developer, so I don't know that much about web, and I'd feel more comfortable delegating the responsibility to Firebase if the implementation is simple. Anyone know whether it's worthwhile/possible to make Ktor work with Firebase? And possibly link some guides?

i’m using firebase auth + ktor on the client but no experience with the backend side, sry
