FireBase Agent

This app (and an agent) uses cell.js framework but you don't have to use cell to build Jasonette agents.

This is just a demonstration. If you're not familiar with cell.js, you can:

  1. Learn www.celljs.org: it's super simple once you understand the minimum building blocks. Takes prob 10 minutes to learn the whole library.
  2. Or if you just want to learn how: this is using Jasonette $agents, just take a look at some of the important parts here to learn how it's using $agent.trigger() inside the _update() method. Then you can implement it using vanilla JS or using your favorite JS Framework.

Try Demo

You can try the web app at https://jasonette.github.io/agent.firebase

And the same web app, plugged into Jasonette: https://jasonette.github.io/agent.firebase/app.json

Brief Overview of what's happening:

A. initializing Firebase

firebase.initializeApp(config);
this._ref = firebase.database().ref();

B. Listening to the value change and triggering _update()

this._ref.on("value", function(snapshot){
  self._update(snapshot.val()); 
});

C. And finally inside _update(), calling $agent.trigger()

$agent.trigger("update", {"items": components.map(function(c) {
  return c.$text
})});
