In my previous post we looked at how to make views independent by encapsulating Firebase networking in them. This led to higher abstraction in your activities/fragments. Although it has some flaws, let’s see if RxJava approach is better
If you have an app and want to add push notifications to it, there’s nothing as simple as implementing them with Firebase Cloud Messaging. In just 10 minutes you’ll have your notifications up and running, let’s see how to do that
In previous post we looked at why it’s better to use Firebase Cloud Functions instead of managing all database code on your clients. We learned how to setup and create few simple functions, let’s continue learning what we can do with Cloud Functions.
Hi, today we’ve got another non-Android tutorial, but about about something that affects Android development experience a lot. Firebase. If you worked with Firebase at least more than just simple samples/insert/fetch, then you probably know about one downside of Firebase using just Android SDK.
Hey guy, there’s two ways to fetch data from Firebase. First – listen to node which is the list of items you want to display. You get the whole list in data snapshot and you just display it or you listen for children changes. Second is to fetch different node keys and listen to them. In particular, that’s what happens when you use Geofire. You just get ids and from that point have to fetch one by one. That’s what we’re going to talk about today.
Hey guys, in the previous post we learned how to make your basic networking cleaner with RxJava for Android. This library is extremely great for complex multiple network calls depending on each other’s success state. What we have today is using library with Retrofit and Firebase Continue reading Android Better Networking w/ RxJava pt 2
Hey, guys, today we’re going to improve out networking by using RxJava library. It’s not something new, but there still might be people who not familiar with it. And hopefully after today you will be convinced to switch completely to it. We’ll talk about advantages you get, otherwise why would you consider to switch from AsyncTask/Loader, pure Retrofit. Let’s get started!
