Firebase React Native App


7/6/16 - Updated to 3.1.0 of the Firebase SDK

With the new 3.1.0 SDK, Firebase Database and Firebase Auth, now work with React Native. Rather than use new Firebase(url) like with the old SDK, you now configure firebase with firebase.initializeApp(config), and use the new firebase.database().ref() method.

const React = require("react-native");
const firebase = require("firebase");

// Initialize Firebase
const firebaseConfig = {
  apiKey: "<YOUR-API-KEY>",
  authDomain: "<YOUR-AUTH-DOMAIN>",
  databaseURL: "<YOUR-DATABASE-URL>",
  storageBucket: "",

// Create a reference with .ref() instead of new Firebase(url)
const rootRef = firebase.database().ref();
const itemsRef = rootRef.child('items');
