re: Help with Firebase Realtime Database VIEW POST


Hey, I can help with this. How have you tried to get this to the Firestore?. I can't really see the code that connects to your Firestore. You need to first create a database in Firestore database then sync then store the list in the database. Syncing to real-time is a breeze from there.


Thanks! I’ve created a Firebase Realtime database. Should I use Firestore instead?


No, it's just fine. Now if you got to your database. You will need to get the collection by name in your app.js. You would do that like so if your collection name is "projects":

// this will return all document in this collection
const allProjects = db.collection("projects").get()

//if you need to store something in the collection first store them in a variable in your code and then store them like below.
 allProjects.set({// your data in here})


You know what, I'll just probably make a pull request to show how you can do it.

Thanks a lot!!! I’m currently working with all my Javascript in my HTML, but it is getting a little crowded. So should I move it to an app.js file? (I’ve also just followed you on GitHub)

Yea, that's what I will suggest. I had some examples with VanillaJS/Jquery -Firebase on my Github but I deleted them, I will try to create an example for you tomorrow.

Thanks so much! I’m going to add your name to the about page meanwhile. I really appreciate the help! 😇

Please let me know when you publish the example! I’d love to see it!

Yea, I will let you know. I have been a little bit ill.

Oh no! 😟 I’m so sorry! Hope you get well soon.

So I found this great walk-through that should help.But you can reach out if you get stuck or have additional questions. Basically at the moment you are just storing the todo and retrieving from LocalStorage. You need to store in Real-time database instead.

Thanks for the link! I’ll check it out. 😀
