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

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.
  • Access Firebase libraries from any component - Need the Firestore SDK? useFirestore. Remote Config? useRemoteConfig.
  • Built-in Support for prefetching - Decrease your load times by starting a connection to products like Firestore, Auth, or Realtime Database before the component that consumes that data is rendered with functions like preloadUser
  • Safely configure Firebase libraries - Libraries like Firestore and Remote Config require setting like enablePersistence to be set before any data fetches are made. This can be tough to support in React's world of re-renders. ReactFire gives you a trusted way to set these settings so you're sure they're set before anything else.

Experimental concurrent mode features

  • 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 <SuspenseWithPerf />.


# 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 { render } from 'react-dom';

import 'firebase/firestore';
import { FirebaseAppProvider, useFirestoreDocData, useFirestore } from 'reactfire';

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

function Burrito() {
  // easily access the Firestore library
  const burritoRef = useFirestore()

  // subscribe to a document for realtime updates. just one line!
  const { status, data } = useFirestoreDocData(burritoRef);

  // easily check the loading status
  if (status === 'loading') {
    return <p>Fetching burrito flavor...</p>;

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

function App() {
  return (
    <FirebaseAppProvider firebaseConfig={firebaseConfig}>
      <Burrito />

render(<App />, document.getElementById('root'));
