No function to decode the json?

Before using Thunkable, I could read the tree structure of a bucket at once and decode according to what I wanted to obtain
Here, if I am not mistaken, we can certainly access the properties and values ​​but invoking a cloud variable amounts to reading the database as many times as we want a set of properties and values ​​which can take a lot of time. .
Is this true?

Yes, all true.

But you can get the cloud variable value once, assign it to an app variable and then use that app variable for all of your decoding/parsing. That way you only do one read of the Firebase data.

Remember that Firebase will return the value as a JSON Object so you can assign this object to an app variable and then access any property/value using the object blocks.

Something like this

You get the value of td this way

You can also use the dot notation and get the value this way
