Great library covering all of Firebase you got here!

I'm looking for a way though, to put and get large JSON or text blobs that I want to store outside of the database. Is there a way to upload and load such text strings without involving unnecessary files on local filesystem on device?

For upload, it seems this would involve putData instead of putFile this library currently supports: https://firebase.google.com/docs/storage/ios/upload-files#upload_from_data_in_memory

For download, it could be by generating a download URL, and then running RN's fetch() for it?

Pointers welcome, if this is already possible without requiring more library support to put and get files in Firebase Storage. http://invertase.io/react-native-firebase/#/modules/storage refers to local paths, but I don't see how I can use local paths without using another library to enable such use, and I'd really like to minimize library dependency, besides writing and reading from disk when it's not necessary.
