Version 6 of React Native Firebase

React Native Firebase v6 is out! It lives under a different package namespace. Want upgrade information? Head to https://invertase.io/oss/react-native-firebase/

All the information in this README is for Version 5 of React Native Firebase, which is on life-support only. Please consider upgrading. Thanks!


React Native Firebase is a light-weight javascript layer connecting you to the native Firebase SDKs for both iOS and Android which aims to mirror the official Firebase Web SDK as closely as possible.

Although the official Firebase JS SDK will work with React Native; it is mainly built for the web and has a limited feature-set compared to native.

Using the native Firebase SDKs with React Native Firebase allows you to consume device SDKs which don't exist on the Firebase JS SDK - for example; Remote Config, Performance Monitoring, Dynamic Links, Analytics and more (see the feature table below for comparison).

Supported Firebase Features

The Web SDK column indicates what modules/functionality from the Web SDK are usable within React Native.

The table below shows the supported versions of React Native and the Firebase SDKs for different versions of react-native-firebase.

3.3.x 5.2.x 5.4.x 5.5.x
React Native 0.50-52 0.52-58 ^0.59.3 ^0.59.3-^0.61.x

The Hermes VM availble with react-native 0.60.3 and higher is not currectly supported. Some initial testing has been done and it appears that valid code in this library does not function correctly with Hermes. Use the standard ('JSC') VM. For iOS 13 you must use Firebase iOS SDK at version ^6.5.x. Otherwise your app may crash, for more information take a look on this issue
