RxFirebase 2

RxJava 2 wrapper on Google's Firebase for Android library.

Usage

Library provides set of static methods of classes:

  • RxFirebaseAuth
  • RxFirebaseUser
  • RxFirebaseDatabase
  • RxFirebaseStorage

Authentication:

Sign in anonymously and get token:

RxFirebaseAuth.signInAnonymously(FirebaseAuth.getInstance())
                .flatMap(x -> RxFirebaseUser.getToken(FirebaseAuth.getInstance().getCurrentUser(), false))
                .subscribe(token -> {
                    Log.i("RxFirebaseSample", "user token: " + token.getToken());
                }, throwable -> {
                    Log.e("RxFirebaseSample", throwable.toString());
                });

Database:

Many thanks to @renanferrari for making it much more flexible.

You can simply observe values providing the Class of expected data like:

RxFirebaseDatabase.observeSingleValue(reference.child("users").child("nick"), User.class)
            .subscribe(user -> {
                // process user value(nullable)
            });

or providing your own mapper between DataSnapshot and your data type:

RxFirebaseDatabase.observeSingleValueEvent(reference.child("posts"),
                dataSnapshot -> {
                    // do your own mapping here
                    return new User();
                })
                .subscribe(user -> {
                    // process user value
                });

There are some pre-defined mappers to make things easier:

Observing list values
RxFirebaseDatabase.observeSingleValueEvent(reference.child("posts"), DataSnapshotMapper.listOf(BlogPost.class))
                .subscribe(blogPost -> {
                    // process blogPost list item
                });
Observing map values
        RxFirebaseDatabase.observeSingleValueEvent(reference.child("posts"), DataSnapshotMapper.mapOf(BlogPost.class))
                .subscribe(blogPostAsMapItem -> {
                    // process blogPost as key-value pair
                });

Storage

Download file from Firebase storage

StorageReference storageRef = FirebaseStorage.getInstance().getReferenceFromUrl("gs://project-1125675579821020265.appspot.com");
RxFirebaseStorage.getFile(storageRef.child("README.md"), targetFile)
        .subscribe(snapshot -> {
            Log.i("RxFirebaseSample", "transferred: " + snapshot.getBytesTransferred() + " bytes");
        }, throwable -> {
            Log.e("RxFirebaseSample", throwable.toString());
        });

or download file as bytes array

RxFirebaseStorage.getBytes(storageRef.child("README.md"), 1024 * 100)
                .subscribe(bytes -> {
                    Log.i("RxFirebaseSample", "downloaded: " + new String(bytes));
                }, throwable -> {
                    Log.e("RxFirebaseSample", throwable.toString());
                });

Download

Gradle:

Step 1. Add the JitPack repository to your build file (root build.gradle file)

allprojects {
  repositories {
    ...
    maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
  }
}

Step 2. Add the RxFirebase dependency along with the needed Firebase dependencies

dependencies {
  compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth:10.0.1'
  compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-database:10.0.1'
  compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-storage:10.0.1'
  compile 'com.github.ariskou:rxfirebase:master-SNAPSHOT'
}
Maven:

Step 1. Add the JitPack repository to your pom file

<repositories>
  <repository>
      <id>jitpack.io</id>
      <url>https://jitpack.io</url>
  </repository>
</repositories>

Step 2. Add the RxFirebase dependency

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.github.ariskou</groupId>
  <artifactId>rxfirebase</artifactId>
  <version>master-SNAPSHOT</version>
  <type>pom</type>
</dependency>
