AngularFire is the officially supported AngularJS binding for Firebase. Firebase is a backend service that provides data storage, file storage, authentication, and static website hosting for your Angular app.
AngularFire is a complement to the core Firebase client. It provides you with several Angular services:
$firebaseObject- synchronized objects
$firebaseArray- synchronized collections
$firebaseStorage- store and retrieve user-generated content like images, audio, and video
$firebaseAuth- authentication, user management, routing
Join our Firebase Google Group to ask questions, provide feedback, and share apps you've built with AngularFire.
