    Version 6 of React Native Firebase

    React Native Firebase v6 is out! It lives under a different package namespace. Want upgrade information? Head to

    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.

    '?' indicates partial support

    ⚠ The Hermes VM availble with react-native 0.60.3 and higher is not currectly supported.
