[REQUIRED] Describe your environment

  • Operating System version: Ubuntu 18.04.2
  • Browser version: N/A
  • Firebase SDK version: 7.14.2
  • Firebase Product: storage

[REQUIRED] Describe the problem

Steps to reproduce:

The UploadTask callback type doesn't match what is documented here:

Callbacks can be passed either as three separate arguments or as the next, error, and complete properties of an object. Any of the three callbacks is optional, as long as at least one is specified. In addition, when you add your callbacks, you get a function back. You can call this function to unregister the associated callbacks.

But the UploadTask callback parameter type seems to require all three callbacks (i.e. it needs an object with next, complete, and error fields).

Relevant Code:

So I've called the UploadTask on() method using an object containing the error and complete callbacks as follows:

 ref.put(file).on(firebase.storage.TaskEvent.STATE_CHANGED, {                                                                                                                                                                 
   async complete() {                                                                                                                                                                                                         
     onChange((await ref.getDownloadURL()));                                                                                                                                                                                  
     setValue(`Uploaded ${filename}.`);                                                                                                                                                                                       
   },                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
   error(error: Error) {                                                                                                                                                                                                      
     setErrored(true);                                                                                                                                                                                                        
     setValue(`An error occurred while uploading ${filename}. ${error.message}`);                                                                                                                                             
   },                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
 });                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

But the UploadTask.prototype.on() type seems to require all three callbacks as I'm getting this Typescript error:

 Argument of type '{ complete(): Promise<void>; error(error: Error): void; }' is not assignable to parameter of type 'Observer<UploadTaskSnapshot, Error> | ((a: UploadTaskSnapshot) => any) | null | undefined'.             
   Property 'next' is missing in type '{ complete(): Promise<void>; error(error: Error): void; }' but required in type 'Observer<UploadTaskSnapshot, Error>'.                                                                 

And the relevant UploadTask.prototype.on() type is defined in node_modules/firebase/index.d.ts as follows:

   7579     on(                                                                                                                                                                                                               
   7580       event: firebase.storage.TaskEvent,

     79   }                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Recommended fix
The fix here should be pretty easy. Just change the parameter in line 7582 of index.d.ts to be a Partial of firebase.Observer as follows:

   7582         | Partial<firebase.Observer<UploadTaskSnapshot>>                                                                                                                                                                       

This will make all of those callbacks optional. Though note that this is not a perfect solution, as your documentation specifies that at least one callback should be provided:

Any of the three callbacks is optional, as long as at least one is specified.

I'm sure that there's a way to do that with Typescript's built-in utility types though (I just don't want to try to figure it how right now because it's your job haha).

@nicholaschiang Thanks for this report. I will take a look and see if we can fix this without breaking the API.
