Thank you Mark. I’m still looking for a project that needs this for production …perhaps I’ll just choose to use it for some in house production solutions next… I’ll let you know as soon as it gets put to the test.
I replaced all the database functionality in a little app used to sign up students for recital performances at Rockfactory, with this dependency. It’s a very low bandwidth app, but serves as a legit proof of concept. Thanks for a great and easy to use integration - the live automatic syncing is really cool!
Automatic syncing of data entered while offline is also a seriously useful feature that comes for free, and saves an enormous amount of potential work where that’s a requirement. I expect to use this integration for lots of projects in the future!
Wow, I missed this when you first announced it, but now I’m excited! This gives me hope that I could stay with Anvil and retain performance if usage of my app scales like I hope it will over the next year or two.
Have you considered open-sourcing it, like on GitHub? That would definitely give me greater comfort as far as using it in production.
Also, some docs feedback: the “Getting started with Firebase for the web - Firebase Fundamentals” video didn’t tell me how to create a Firebase project as I was expecting it to (though that turned out to be pretty self-explanatory). Instead, the contents were pretty redundant to your docs, with the one exception being the reassurance that it really is safe to expose that project_config info on the client side.
@mark.breuss Do you also have a custom wrapper for the server-side python sdk (reading between the lines from an old post of yours)? I would be interested in that, also, for one. I’ll share my own server-side “hello world” in a separate thread.
I have some helper functions that enable authenticating to firebase with anvil users and so on but nothing major. Maybe the basic functions could be included in the anvil-firebase dependency for ease of use.
Mark, I’ve noticed now that including your firebase third-party dependency in my app slows down server calls by around 3 seconds (without persistent server enabled). I’m guessing this is because the dependency is importing some things in a server module (perhaps firebase_admin) even though the server is not needed for the documented features of the dependency, as far as I understand. If I’m right about this, could you actually remove the server module from the dependency?
