PHP package for Firebase wrapper
This package makes the authentication and the basic CRUD operation on Firebase Database as simple as possible. For now, it supports both Guzzle 5 and Guzzle 6.
The easiest way it via Composer
composer require geckob/firebase
1.1 Generate Service Account secret file
This package supported authentication using secrets file generated in the Service Account page.
To generate the secret file, follow this steps
- Go to Firebase Console
- Choose your project
- Click the gear icon and go to Project Settings
- Click the Service Accounts tab
- Scroll down and click "Generate New Private Key" button. Save it to somewhere secure but accessible for your internal server
1.2 Use the secret file to authenticate
$firebase = new \Geckob\Firebase\Firebase('path_to_your_secret_file.json');
The CRUD operation on Firebase Database is based on the Firebase REST API Docs.
Assuming the authentication is succesfully done,
// Set the parent node. $firebase = $firebase->setPath('bookings/'); // Create a new node with key = test and value = testValue. // If the node already exist, it will update the value $firebase->set('test','testValue'); // Support multiple nodes, if it doesnt exist, it will create the node $firebase->set('testObject/testKey', 'testValueObject'); // Update properties of an object. This requires to call setPath first to identify the parent $firebase->patch([ 'firstname' => 'value', 'lastname' => 'value1' ]); // Same as set but without keys. This requires to call setPath first to identify the parent $firebase->push([ 'test' => 'value', 'test1' => 'value1' ]); // Get the value of node with key = test $firebase->get('test'); // Get the value of using multilevel key $firebase->get('testObject/testKey'); // Delete the node with key = test $firebase->delete('test'); // Delete the multilevel node and all it's children $firebase->delete('testObject/testKey');
This package works perfectly fine for my use case for now. Should you have any other use cases that requires me to extend the features, or suggestions how this package can be improved, feel free to open issues or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
