Programmatically instantiate and modify Firebase instances.

For automated testing, mostly.

npm install --save firebase-admin

var FirebaseAccount = require('firebase-admin');
var Firebase = require('firebase');
FirebaseAccount.getToken('user', 'pass')
.then(function(token) {
  var account = new FirebaseAccount(token);
  account.createDatabase('new-instance-name')
  .then(function(instance) {
    var fb = new Firebase(instance.toString());
  })
  .catch(function(err) {
    console.error('Oops, error creating instance:', err);
  });
});

There's JSDoc-generated API documentation.

git clone https://github.com/casetext/firebase-admin
cd firebase-admin
npm install
npm test

Please jshint. That is all.

  • This package uses Firebase's own APIs. You can't do anything with it you can't already do in the admin tools and Forge.
  • Do not abuse the Firebase service. It's amazing and the people who work there are amazing.

Big whoop, wanna fight about it?
