Laravel RealTime CRUD Using Google Firebase

Published on April 27, 2019 5 min read

In this tutorial, I am going to show you the real-time CRUD using Google Firebase. Let’s follow these steps:

Table of Contents

  1. Create a Firebase Project
  2. Create a Laravel Project
  3. Register View Route
  4. Add a Blade File
  5. Run and Test

Step 1 : Create a Firebase Project

Let’s first create a firebase project and take firebase credentials. Go to
https://firebase.google.com/ and create a project.

Enter a project name and click “Create project” button.

Our firebase project has been created. Now click “Continue” button. On the Project Overview page, you will see like this:

From this page, select Web. Then you will see a popup window with the firebase web config credentials.

We have successfully created a Firebase project and got the necessary credentials.

Step 2 : Create a Laravel Project

Go to your project directory using CMD and run this command to create a Laravel project:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravelproject

Step 3 : Register View Route

Go to routes >> web.php and register this route:

web.php
<?php

Route::view('customers', 'customers');

Step 4 : Add a Blade File

Navigate to resources >> views directory and create a file named “customers.blade.php”. Then open the file and paste this code:

customers.blade.php
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <!-- Required meta tags -->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">

    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0/css/bootstrap.min.css">

In this file, I have created a simple CURD form using Bootstrap 4. At the end of the file, you will get the Firebase JavaScript CURD code. It’s easy to understand.

Step 5 : Run and Test

Run the laravel project by typing:

php artisan serve

Now visit the route(http://localhost:8000/customers) to see the form. You can start testing by adding data.

Here’s the Firebase database’s screenshot:

We have successfully created and tested Firebase RealTime CRUD project. You can download this project from Gitub.
