# Integration with Firebase for Authentication

//Replace firebase values with your app api values import firebase from 'firebase';

componentWillMount() { firebase.initializeApp({ apiKey: "yourAPIKey", authDomain: "authDomainNAme", databaseURL: "yourDomainBaseURL", projectId: "yourProjectID", storageBucket: "storageBUcketValue", messagingSenderId: "senderIdValue" }); firebase.auth().signInWithEmailAndPassword(email, password) .then(this.onLoginSuccess) }) }

# React Native - ListView with Firebase

This is what I do when I'm working with Firebase and I want to use ListView.

Use a parent component to retrieve the data from Firebase (Posts.js):

Posts.js

import PostsList from './PostsList';

class Posts extends Component{
    constructor(props) {
        super(props);
        this.state = {
            posts: []
        }
    }
    
    componentWillMount() {
        firebase.database().ref('Posts/').on('value', function(data) {
            this.setState({ posts: data.val() });
        });
    }

    render() {
        return <PostsList posts={this.state.posts}/>
    }
}

PostsList.js

class PostsList extends Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props);
        this.state = {
            dataSource: new ListView.DataSource({
                rowHasChanged: (row1, row2) => row1 !== row2
            }),
        }
    }

    getDataSource(posts: Array<any>): ListView.DataSource {
        if(!posts) return;
        return this.state.dataSource.cloneWithRows(posts);
    }

    componentDidMount() {
        this.setState({dataSource: this.getDataSource(this.props.posts)});
    }

    componentWillReceiveProps(props) {
        this.setState({dataSource: this.getDataSource(props.posts)});
    }

    renderRow = (post) => {
        return (
            <View>
                <Text>{post.title}</Text>
                <Text>{post.content}</Text>
            </View>
        );
    }

    render() {
        return(
            <ListView
                dataSource={this.state.dataSource}
                renderRow={this.renderRow}
                enableEmptySections={true}
            />
        );
    }
}

I want to point out that in Posts.js, I'm not importing firebase because you only need to import it once, in the main component of your project (where you have the navigator) and use it anywhere.

This is the solution someone suggested in a question I asked when I was struggling with ListView. I thought it would be nice to share it.

# Authentication In React Native Using Firebase

Replace firebase values with your app api values:

import firebase from 'firebase';
componentWillMount() {
firebase.initializeApp({
  apiKey: "yourAPIKey",
  authDomain: "authDomainNAme",
  databaseURL: "yourDomainBaseURL",
  projectId: "yourProjectID",
  storageBucket: "storageBUcketValue",
  messagingSenderId: "senderIdValue"
});
    firebase.auth().signInWithEmailAndPassword(email, password)
  .then(this.onLoginSuccess)
  .catch(() => {
    firebase.auth().createUserWithEmailAndPassword(email, password)
      .then(this.onLoginSuccess)
      .catch(this.onLoginFail)
  })
}
