Firebase in Expo?


#1

it’d be great to be able to use analytics (there’s a wrapper for it on npm) and storage

I haven’t tried it out but I’ve been using firegbase realtime database in another RN app and am thinking about moving over to expo


#2

There’s a guide here:
https://docs.expo.io/versions/v14.0.0/guides/using-firebase.html

Not everything in Firebase is supported but things that can be done using just fetch are. The data storage capabilities work. Push notifications don’t (unless you eject/detach) but you shouldn’t need them since you can just use Expo push notifications.


#3

I don’t use Firebase, but I would like to use it purely for analytics purposes in my app (along side Amplitude). Should this work fine with Expo out the box?
