Firebase Cloud Functions for HyperTrack Ridesharing sample app

This repository contains Firebase Cloud Functions that create and complete trips and manage orders for Ridesharing apps for iOS and Android.


Firebase Cloud Functions require a paid account to make outbound API calls. This includes API calls to HyperTrack APIs. We recommend using the Blaze plan. It gives a lot of bandwidth for free, which is more then enough to internally test the app.

Add to your project

  1. Clone the repo.
git clone
cd ridesharing-firebase
  1. Install Firebase tools CLI
npm install -g firebase-tools
  1. Login to your account and choose your project
firebase login
firebase use --add

Select the project from dropdown menu. You can use any alias for the project.

  1. Install function dependencies
cd functions ; npm install ; cd ..
  1. Configure functions with HyperTrack API Keys

Copy AccountId and SecretKey from HyperTrack's dashboard setup page. Paste them in /functions/index.js file into placeholders on line 9. Keep the : separator between them.

  1. Deploy functions into your Firebase Ridesharing project
firebase deploy --only functions
  1. Setup webhooks from HyperTrack to Cloud Functions
  • Open the Functions > Dashboard tab in your Firebase project
  • Copy the trigger URL for onTripUpdate function Functions Dashboard
  • Go to HyperTrack's dashboard setup page and add this URL as a webhook URL.
  • Go back to Firebase and open the Logs tab. Search for onTripUpdate function's log with SubscriptionConfirmation message. Open the SubscribeURL in browser (XML file will appear). The webhook activation can take a few minutes. Refresh the dashboard's setup page to make sure, that activation was successful. Functions Logs
  1. Your Cloud Functions backend is now ready to interface with HyperTrack APIs.
