Firebase Tutorial for iOS Apps
Lesson 5: How Firebase Data is Stored
In this lesson, you’ll learn how your data is stored in the Firebase Realtime Database. Clue: It’s not stored using Tables and Rows!

This video series uses the latest and greatest from Apple (Xcode 8, Swift 3, iOS 10) and Google (Firebase) to create a messaging app with database features.

This series is intended for intermediate programmers or people who have gone through my Beginner series which can be found here:

CodeWithChris Hi, yes just looked it up, when you are in the database there three vertical dots on the right, clicking on them will reviel a menu with option "export JSON", "import JSON"… import JSON will overwrite the structure and data of the database.. thats very good as I have a JSON from a MySQL database with alot of entries that I will import… thanks again for the video 👍🏻

+waleed ware hmm I haven't explored importing existing data into firebase but I can imagine this might be an option. Have you checked the firebase documentation?

Great tutorial! I was wondering if this is also the way to go in order to create a multiplayer game?

+Tom Jansen hey Tom, I believe it would be but I have to admit that my experience building multiplayer games is limited. The realtime database seems like it would be fine to me!
