Table of Contents


Firebase provides the tools and infrastructure you need to develop your app, grow your user base, and earn money. The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK provides admin (second-party) access to several Firebase services.

For more information, visit the Firebase Admin SDK setup guide.


The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK is available on npm as firebase-admin:

$ npm install --save firebase-admin

To use the module in your application, require it from any JavaScript file:

var admin = require("firebase-admin");

If you are using ES2015, you can import the module instead:

import * as admin from "firebase-admin";
