In order to add Laravel Firebase Sync to your project, just add
to your composer.json. Then run composer install or composer update.
Or run composer require mpociot/laravel-firebase-sync if you prefer that.
This package requires you to add the following section to your config/services.php file:
'firebase'=> ['api_key'=>'API_KEY', // Only used for JS integration'auth_domain'=>'AUTH_DOMAIN', // Only used for JS integration'database_url'=>'https://your-database-at.firebaseio.com','secret'=>'DATABASE_SECRET','storage_bucket'=>'STORAGE_BUCKET', // Only used for JS integration]
Note: This package only requires the configuration keys database_url and secret. The other keys are only necessary if you want to also use the firebase JS API.
To synchronize your Eloquent models with the Firebase realtime database, simply let the models that you want to synchronize with Firebase use the Mpociot\Firebase\SyncsWithFirebase trait.
The data that will be synchronized is the array representation of your model. That means that you can modify the data using the existing Eloquent model attributes like visible, hidden or appends.
If you need more control over the data that gets synchronized with Firebase, you can override the getFirebaseSyncData of the SyncsWithFirebase trait and let it return the array data you want to send to Firebase.
