Integration of Firebase Realtime Database and SendGrid

Firebase Realtime Database is a cloud-hosted database. It provides realtime cloud synchronization of data. The data is stored as JSON and is automatically synchronized with the Firebase Realtime Database servers. Data can be queried using different filtering conditions.

SendGrid is a trusted email delivery platform that enables developers send transactional emails on their websites or mobile apps. SendGrid can be integrated on any website or mobile app to send transactional emails.

  • Integration of Firebase Realtime Database and SendGrid
  • In this section, we will discuss how Firebase Realtime Database and SendGrid can be integrated to send emails.

    Firebase Realtime Database can be used in a web app to record the activity that happens in the app. When a user performs an action in the app, an event is recorded in the Firebase Realtime Database. Whenever a user performs an action in the app, an email containing details about the event can be sent to the user. In this way, a user is informed about the activity performed in the app. We will use SendGrid to send these emails.

    To integrate both Firebase Realtime Database and SendGrid, download Firebase from here. Then, signup at SendGrid.com and create a free account. After creating a free account in SendGrid, you must verify your account by adding a credit card. The credit card information will be only used when you actually send emails from your account.

    First, you should download the SDK from here. Then, add this SDK to your project in XCode. After adding the SDK to your project, add the fplowing code in your AppDelegate file:

    Firebase *fbc = [Firebase alloc]; [fbc setDBOpen:YES]; [fbc setLogLevel:FIREBASE_LOG_LEVEL_DEBUG]; SendGrid *sendgrid = [SendGrid initWithEmail:@"<email>" password:@"<password>" apiKey:@"<api key>" fromName:@"<from name>" fromEmail:@"<from email>" subjectPrefix:@"<prefix>" subjectSuffix:@"<suffix>" htmlBody:@"<html body>" messageAttachment:nil attachments:@[@"<attachments>"]]; [sendgrid loginWithSuccess:^(NSString *userId. { [self fetchNewDataFromFirebase]; } failure:^(NSError *error. { if (error. { NSLog(@"%@",error); } else { NSLog(@"Failed to login"); } }]; [self fetchNewDataFromFirebase]; - (void)fetchNewDataFromFirebase { // Fetch new data from firebase NSString *body = @"; [firebase getValue:&body forPath:@"/fruits/banana"]; // Check if body is available if ([body length] > 0. { // If body is available, set it to tableview data [tableView reloadData]; } else { // If body is not available, show loading indicator } } 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136 137 138 139 140 141 142 143 144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176 177 178 179 180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191 192 193 194 195 196 197 198 199 200 201 202 203 204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270 271 272 273 274 275 276 277 278 279 280 281 282 283 284 285 Firebase * fbc = [ Firebase alloc ] ; [ fbc setDBOpen .

    In the above code, we have initialized a Firebase instance and a SendGrid instance in the AppDelegate class. By initializing a SendGrid instance here, we can use it anywhere in our app(for instance, in a view contrpler. We have set the log level of Firebase to debug. In order to track what is happening in your app with Firebase, turn on logging in Firebase conspe. In the initialization of SendGrid instance, we have specified some parameters like email, password, api key(which can be found in your SendGrid account), fromname and from email of the user sending the email and so forth. These parameters are required to send mail from an account of an application. We have also specified some parameters for html body and attachments of the email we want to send. For more details about the parameters we have specified in the initialization of SendGrid, go to here. Note that you should replace existing values of <fromname>, <fromemail>, <subjectprefix>, <subjectsuffix>, <htmlbody> and <messageattachment> with your own values respectively. For example, if you want to send an email from someone called John Doe and with subject prefix “Test Alert” and subject suffix “Test Sent” and HTML body “Your Account Has Been Suspended” and with attachments “logo.png” and “header.png” then you should replace all these values with yours respectively.

    We have called method loginWithSuccess when we successfully logged into our existing SendGrid account and method loginWithFailure when we failed to login into our existing SendGrid account. We have used these methods to handle errors that may occur during login process or while sending an email etc. Next we have called method fetchNewDataFromFirebase which retrieves new data from Firebase by calling method getValue for path “/fruits/banana”. Data retrieved from Firebase is converted into string “banana” which is assigned to variable “body” and compared against nil value “if its length is greater than zero then it means there is new data in Firebase so refresh the table view otherwise show loading indicator”. If there are no new data in Firebase then table view will be refreshed with default data(data already saved in table view. Now run your project on iOS Simulator or device. Go to Safari browser and open Develop menu by pressing Command + Option + I keys together. You will see your application running on port 3000 in Safari browser as shown below in Figure 1.
