Firebase for Laravel
A Laravel package for the Firebase PHP Admin SDK.
This package requires Laravel 6.x and higher or Lumen 6.x and higher.
composer require kreait/laravel-firebase
If you use Lumen or don't use Laravel's package auto-discovery, add the following service provider in
config/app.php (Laravel) or
<?php // config/app.php return [ // ... 'providers' => [ // ... Kreait\Laravel\Firebase\ServiceProvider::class ] // ... ];
<?php // bootstrap/app.php $app->register(Kreait\Laravel\Firebase\ServiceProvider::class); // If you want to use the Facades provided by the package $app->withFacades();
See UPGRADE.md for upgrade instructions.
In order to access a Firebase project and its related services using a server SDK, requests must be authenticated. For server-to-server communication this is done with a Service Account.
The package uses auto discovery for the default project to find the credentials needed for authenticating requests to the Firebase APIs by inspecting certain environment variables and looking into Google's well known path(s).
If you don't already have generated a Service Account, you can do so by following the instructions from the official documentation pages at https://firebase.google.com/docs/admin/setup#initialize_the_sdk.
Once you have downloaded the Service Account JSON file, you can configure the package by specifying
environment variables starting with
FIREBASE_ in your
.env file. Usually, the following are
required for the package to work:
# relative or full path to the Service Account JSON file FIREBASE_CREDENTIALS= # You can find the database URL for your project at # https://console.firebase.google.com/project/_/database FIREBASE_DATABASE_URL=https://<your-project>.firebaseio.com
For further configuration, please see config/firebase.php. You can modify the configuration
by copying it to your local
config directory or by defining the environment variables used in the config file:
# Laravel php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Kreait\Laravel\Firebase\ServiceProvider" --tag=config # Lumen mkdir -p config cp vendor/kreait/laravel-firebase/config/firebase.php config/firebase.php
|Cloud Messaging (FCM)||
Once you have retrieved a component, please refer to the documentation of the Firebase PHP Admin SDK for further information on how to use it.
You don't need and should not use the
new Factory() pattern described in the SDK documentation, this is already
done for you with the Laravel Service Provider. Use Dependency Injection, the Facades or the
app() helper instead
Multiple projects can be configured in config/firebase.php by adding another section to the projects array.
When accessing components, the facade uses the default project. You can also explicitly use a project:
use Kreait\Laravel\Firebase\Facades\Firebase; // Return an instance of the Auth component for the default Firebase project $defaultAuth = Firebase::auth(); // Return an instance of the Auth component for a specific Firebase project $appAuth = Firebase::project('app')->auth(); $anotherAppAuth = Firebase::project('another-app')->auth();
