Firebase provides the tools and infrastructure you need to develop your app, grow your user base, and earn money. The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK enables access to Firebase services from privileged environments (such as servers or cloud) in Node.js.
For more information, visit the Firebase Admin SDK setup guide.
The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK is available on npm as
$ npm install --save firebase-admin
To use the module in your application,
var admin = require("firebase-admin");
If you are using ES2015, you can
import the module instead:
import * as admin from "firebase-admin";
We support Node.js 6.0 and higher. Please note that the Admin SDK should only be used in server-side/back-end environments controlled by the app developer. This includes most server and serverless platforms (both on-premise and in the cloud). It is not recommended to use the Admin SDK in client-side environments.
Thanks to the team at Casetext for transferring
ownership of the
firebase-admin npm module over to the Firebase team
and for their longtime use and support of the Firebase platform.
