Removing a listener from firestorm

In react, if you attach a listener for realtime updates when a component mounts, you'd need to remove it when the component amounts.

Failing to do so could raise an error if you delete that item and there's a listener that is still associated with it.

let unsub = db.collection('cities').onSnapshot(() => {


// ...

// Stop listening for changes

In React hooks

if using React hooks, you use useEffect and return a function to do the clean up. See the React docs for more details on the equivalent syntax to componentWillUnmount
