Hooks, Context Providers, and Components that make it easy to interact with Firebase.

⚠️ Status: Experimental. The API is intended to be stable, but ReactFire is meant for React Concurrent Mode, which is only available in experimental React builds.

What is ReactFire?

  • Easy realtime updates for your function components - Hooks like useUserand useFirestoreCollection let you easily subscribe to auth state, realtime data, and all other Firebase SDK events. Plus, they automatically unsubscribe when your component unmounts.
  • Loading states handled by <Suspense> - ReactFire's hooks throw promises that Suspense can catch. No more isLoaded ?... - let React handle it for you.
  • Faster initial page load times - Load only the code you need, when you need it, with useFirestore, useAuth, useRemoteConfig, and more.
  • Convenient components for common use cases - Only want to render a component if a user is signed in? Wrap it in <AuthCheck />. Need to automatically instrument your Suspense load times with RUM? Use <SuspenseWithPef />.


# npm
npm install --save reactfire firebase

# or

# yarn
yarn add reactfire firebase

Depending on your targeted platforms you may need to install polyfills. The most commonly needed will be globalThis and Proxy.

Example use

Check out the live version on StackBlitz!

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import { createRoot } from 'react-dom';
import { FirebaseAppProvider, useFirestoreDocData, useFirestore, SuspenseWithPerf } from 'reactfire';

const firebaseConfig = {
  /* Add your config from the Firebase Console */

function Burrito() {
  // lazy load the Firestore SDK
  // and create a ref
  const burritoRef = useFirestore()

  // subscribe to the doc. just one line!
  // throws a Promise for Suspense to catch,
  // and then streams live updates
  const burrito = useFirestoreDocData(burritoRef);

  return <p>The burrito is {burrito.yummy ? 'good' : 'bad'}!</p>;

function App() {
  return (
    <FirebaseAppProvider firebaseConfig={firebaseConfig}>
      <SuspenseWithPerf fallback={<p>loading burrito status...</p>} traceId={'load-burrito-status'}>
        <Burrito />

// Enable Concurrent Mode
// https://reactjs.org/docs/concurrent-mode-adoption.html#enabling-concurrent-mode
createRoot(document.getElementById('root')).render(<App />);
