What is AngularFire?

  • Observable based - Use the power of RxJS, Angular, and Firebase.
  • Realtime bindings - Synchronize data in realtime.
  • Authentication - Log users in with a variety of providers and monitor authentication state.
  • Offline Data - Store data offline automatically with AngularFirestore.
  • Server-side Render - Generate static HTML to boost perceived performance or create static sites.
  • ngrx friendly - Integrate with ngrx using AngularFire's action based APIs.
  • Manage binary data - Upload, download, and delete binary files like images, videos, and other blobs.
  • Call server code - Directly call serverless Cloud Functions with user context automatically passed.
  • Push notifications - Register and listen for push notifications
  • Modular - Include only what's needed. No AngularFire package is above 4kb with most under 2kb (gzipped).


Get your first application up and running by following our quickstart guide.

Example use:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { AngularFirestore } from '@angular/fire/firestore';
import { Observable } from 'rxjs';

  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `
    <li *ngFor="let item of items | async">
      {{ item.name }}
export class MyApp {
  items: Observable<any[]>;
  constructor(firestore: AngularFirestore) {
    this.items = firestore.collection('items').valueChanges();



Stackblitz Template - Remember to set your Firebase configuration in app/app.module.ts.

Developer Guide

NEW: Monitor usage of your application in production

AngularFireAnalytics provides a convient method of interacting with Google Analytics in your Angular application. The provided ScreenTrackingService and UserTrackingService automatically log events when you're using the Angular Router or Firebase Authentication respectively. Learn more about Google Analytics.

Interacting with your database(s)

Firebase offers two cloud-based, client-accessible database solutions that support realtime data syncing. Learn about the differences between them in the Firebase Documentation.

Cloud Firestore

AngularFirestore allows you to work with Cloud Firestore, the new flagship database for mobile app development. It improves on the successes of Realtime Database with a new, more intuitive data model. Cloud Firestore also features richer, faster queries and scales better than Realtime Database.

Realtime Database

AngularFireDatabase allows you to work with the Realtime Database, Firebase's original database. It's an efficient, low-latency solution for mobile apps that require synced states across clients in realtime.

Authenticate users

Upload files

Receive push notifications

BETA: Change behavior and appearance of your application without deploying

Firebase Remote Config is a cloud service that lets you change the behavior and appearance of your app without requiring users to download an app update. Learn more about Remote Config.

NEW: Monitor your application performance in production

Firebase Performance Monitoring is a service that helps you to gain insight into the performance characteristics of your iOS, Android, and web apps. Learn more about Performance Monitoring.

Directly call Cloud Functions

Deploying your application

Firebase Hosting is production-grade web content hosting for developers. With Hosting, you can quickly and easily deploy web apps and static content to a global content delivery network (CDN) with a single command.

Server-side rendering

Angular Universal is a technology that allows you to run your Angular application on a server. This allows you to generate your HTML in a process called server-side rendering (SSR). Angularfire is compatible with server-side rendering; allowing you to take advantage of the Search Engine Optimization, link previews, the performance gains granted by the technology, and more.
