AngularJS + Firebase

Everything you need to get started with AngularJS and Firebase.


Store and sync your AngularJS
app's data in milliseconds.
Firebase is a realtime backend
for your AngularJS app.

Include Firebase

Firebase works great with Angular and can synchronize your Angular app's data without any backend code.

<!-- Firebase -->
<script src=""></script>
<!-- AngularJS -->
<script src=""></script>

Try AngularFire

We offer an optional helper library (AngularFire) for wiring up Firebase within your app.

Specify firebase as a dependency. Then import the $firebase service in your controller and instantiate it with a Firebase reference.

<!-- AngularFire Library -->
<script src=""></script>

  var myApp = angular.module("MyApp", ["firebase"]);

  function MyController($scope, $firebase) {
    var peopleRef = new Firebase("https://<my-firebase>");
    // Automatically syncs everywhere in realtime
    $scope.people = $firebase(peopleRef);

Modify Data

Firebase makes it easy to modify your data. You can use AngularFire methods like $add, $remove and $update.

Or use our standard Javascript API methods from within your app like set(), update(), and remove().

function MyController($scope, $firebase) {
  var peopleRef = new Firebase("https://<my-firebase>");
  $scope.people = $firebase(peopleRef);
  $scope.addPerson = function() {
    // AngularFire $add method
    //or add a new person manually
    peopleRef.update({name: 'Alex', age: 35});

    $scope.newPerson = "";
<div ng-controller="MyController">
  <ul ng-repeat="person in people">
  <input type="text" ng-model="newPerson"/>
  <button type="submit" ng-click="addPerson()">Add New Person</button>

In addition to all of the AngularFire API methods we also have a comprehensive guide for building AngularJS apps with Firebase.

Angular + Firebase Documentation
$add(value) The $add method takes a single argument of any type. It will append this value as a member of a list
$remove([key]) The $remove method takes a single optional argument, a key. If a key is provided, this method will remove the child referenced by that key.
$set(value) Overwrites the remote value for this object to newValue. The local object will also be subsequently updated to this new value.
