RNFirebase makes using Firebase with React Native simple. It is a light-weight layer sitting on-top of the native Firebase libraries for both iOS and Android which mirrors the Firebase Web SDK as closely as possible.
Although the Firebase Web SDK library will work with React Native, it is mainly built for the web.
The native SDKs also allow us to hook into device sdk's which are not possible with the web SDK, for example crash reporting, offline realtime database support, analytics and more!
All in all, RNFirebase provides much faster performance (~2x) over the web SDK and provides device sdk's not found in the web sdk (see the feature table below).
The Web SDK column indicates what modules/functionality from the Web SDK are usable within React Native.
'?' indicates partial support
