Integration of Airtable and Firebase Realtime Database

Airtable was founded in 2012 and is a cloud-based software company that helps its users build and manage spreadsheets. It is located in San Francisco, California. The company has raised $16.5 million in funding.

    What is Firebase Realtime Database?

Firebase is a mobile development platform which provides a comprehensive set of backend services like database, storage, user authentication, analytics and crash reporting. The realtime database feature of Firebase allows developers to store data in realtime. All the data is stored as JSON documents.Firebase has two different types of databases. Firestore and Realtime Database.Firestore is a non-relational database and it is used for storing large amounts of structured data especially for mobile or web applications. Compared to firestore, realtime database is much simpler and easier to use.

    Integration of Airtable and Firebase Realtime Database

First, create a new spreadsheet in Airtable. Then, go to the docs page and follow the instructions to integrate Firebase Realtime Database with your spreadsheet. After that, you can access the data in realtime using the ID provided by Airtable.Below is an example of how to use the spreadsheet ID to access data in Firebase Realtime Database:Then, copy the code and click on the button ‘Add Firebase to your web app’ from the console dashboard of Firebase. After that, paste the code into the script tag of index.html. Now, you can access data from Firebase Realtime Database in realtime.As shown in the above image, if you change the value of ‘name’ in the spreadsheet then all clients will be notified with the updated information at once because they are connected to one database.This integration allows multiple users to instantly update records.

    Benefits of Integration of Airtable and Firebase Realtime Database

  • Reduce development time with real-time updating features
  • Allows multiple users to edit same data simultaneously
  • Create/update documents in real-time

4. Build real-time applications without a server in real timeC. Limitations of Integration of Airtable and Firebase Realtime Database

  • The maximum amount of data you can store in a single document is around 1MB.
  • If you want to create your own endpoints for the application then you will have to pay for it because it is only free for read operations if you are using more than 10,000 records per month.
  • It requires a lot of work setup and a decent understanding about how Firebase works because it limits direct database access.

We have seen how we can use Airtable and Firebase together to improve our productivity with cloud computing and create powerful applications. We also learned about the limitations of this integration. However, we still cannot deny its potential benefits because integration between these two platforms gives us a simple way to implement real-time updating features and create applications without servers unlike other cloud based technologies such as Microsoft’s Azure which requires servers to work properly. We hope this article has been informative for you and we look forward to reading your comments on our social media pages regarding this topic.
