Get started with the Firebase Realtime Database documentation: goo.gl/hgWLRL

Picking up from where we left off in the last episode, today on Polycasts we’ll look at how to connect our app to the Firebase realtime database. The Firebase database is extremely easy to setup and since it’s event based, you never have to poll it for changes. Best of all, we can use the new Polymerfire elements to remove extra code and make setup a total breeze!

Rob, I'm using vaadin's combo box for my project and I'm binding to that my data from my firebase database. Works really great but now I need to get two fields from firebase, then concatenating them and binding them finally to the items list of the combobox. Do you have any tips on how to accomplish that? Thanks!

it would be interesting how could we use firebase to upload files, like jpegs and such. Thank you for your great tuts. Amazing work!

@rob_dodson +rob_dodson . Interesting use of firebase-query. I was under the impression, from countless hours of trying to figure out how to use polymerfire, that writing to the database should be done through firebase-document. Is this the officially recommended use or just a nice and practical hack?

Rob, so now we have two ways to create an application: with the Firebase support, where we have a 'simpler' application, but with all the stuff to go to the Firebase database, and through the Polymer CLI, where we can build a full fledged deployable application, with proper build support, and whatever else… Is there a way to simply 'connect' the two things?Thanks.

I would love to see this without using other frameworks.100% Firebase and JavaScript

What would be very useful would be to show how to use Firebase for authentication only, and then use the obtained user-token to develop permissions in an app which uses another database (like mongDB) to store i'ts data: OK Rod, you can do it!… ;D
