A minimal abstraction over the Firebase client API

Basic Usage

Meant for frontend Javascript/Typescript apps which interact with Firebase's client API using the firebase client api.

import DB, { IFirebaseConfig } from "abstracted-client";
const config: IFirebaseClientConfig = {
  apiKey: "ATzaSyDuimhvBmcV1zeTl4m1MphOgWnzS16QhBM",
  authDomain: "my-app.firebaseapp.com",
  databaseURL: "https://my-app.firebaseio.com",
  projectId: "my-app",
  storageBucket: "my-app.appspot.com",
  messagingSenderId: "999999999999"
const db = new DB({ config });
// Get a list of records
const users = await db.getValue<IUser[]>("users");
// Push a new value onto a list
const company: ICompany = {
  name: "Acme",
  employees: 500
db.push<ICompany>("/companies", company);


All of the authentication is done via the normal Firebase API for Auth which is accessible as auth off the DB class:

const db = new DB({ config });
const auth = db.auth;


This library supports simple redirecting of all operations to the firemock mocking library; see related projects) and the "Mocking" section of the docs here for more details. In cases where mocking is being used, authentication (and security rights for paths) are not supported and therefore the above ENV variables are not required.


Since this library and abstracted-admin share a common implementation for most of their API surface you'll find the documentation here: abstracted-admin
