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!

PLEASE, FOR GOD. MAKE A FULL TUTORIAL FOR DOCUMENT UPLOAD, like image upload, for hell this is ABSURD hard!!! We that are starting get lost when we are doing uploads, and for sure, if we and to make a real app we need to manage uploads from users… :(.

Thanks for the great video Rob. I'm also trying to make an application with Polymer and Firebase but I find it difficult to do a multipath update with the Polyfire elements. Can you please provide me an example or hints on how I can achieve this? Thanks!

There's an issue in the line when removing from the firebase database. It should be: this.$.query.ref.child(key).remove(); (ref is missing)

You might come across the same issue as I did when trying to implement the firebase real time database. This should help you: github.com/firebase/polymerfire/issues/172

Check the imports! I had the same error with "…/paper-button/paper-input.html".
