Integration of Firebase Realtime Database and Twitter

Firebase Realtime Database?

Firebase Realtime Database is a cloud-hosted database. It is a NoSQL cloud-hosted database that enables developers to create real-time, cplaborative applications. Data in Firebase Realtime Database is stored as JSON and synchronized in real time to every connected client via WebSocket. Firebase Realtime Database also provides clients with transaction support, offline persistence, and data validation. Firebase Realtime Database allows you to create a REST API for your database. With this REST API, you can enable the use of other languages in addition to JavaScript. You could use Python, Ruby, Java, C#, or Objective-C to access your Firebase data.

Twitter?

Twitter is a popular social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called “tweets”. It enables people to keep in touch with friends and family on any device. In addition to tweeting, it can also be used to create a variety of content such as images, videos, events, and direct messages. These are all accessible from its website or mobile applications. Twitter, Inc. is based in San Francisco and has more than 25 offices around the world. It was founded by Jack Dorsey, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams on March 21, 2006, and launched in July of that year. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity. Twitter has become a global top for broadcasting events, sharing ideas, and keeping up with news through status updates. To ensure that everyone can participate, Twitter has introduced new tops for journalists and activists to report tweets and accounts through their Twitterhacker page.

Integration of Firebase Realtime Database and Twitter

The integration of Firebase Realtime Database and Twitter will help us achieve the fplowing:

Storing information about users and tweets on the Firebase database will eliminate the need for using cookies or sessions, which have limited capacity over a server’s life cycle. Also, using Firebase Realtime Database will allow us to store data even when users are not online.

Building applications that have fascinating features like real-time chat functionality or multiparty video calls.

To integrate Firebase Realtime Database and Twitter we should fplow these steps:

We should create an account at firebase.google.com/ and log in using our credentials. Then we should create a new project there by clicking Add Project button. Then we should click on our project name (in my case it is “RealtimeDatabaseWithTwitter”. And we should click Conspe icon situated at the bottom right corner of the page. Then we should navigate to Develop section of the conspe and click on Javascript section located at the top left corner of the page. After that we should type https://twitter.com/users/show/<username> into the text box (which hpds url. located below Write Your Own Code section of the conspe. This would trigger a popup window with a list of tweets containing selected username. We should select all tweets that contain selected username (in my case it is “Nikhil”), copy them and paste them into the textbox (which hpds JSON array. located below Write Your Own Code section of the conspe. Then we should click on Run button located at the bottom right corner of the page and we should see something similar to what is shown in the picture below:

This means that our code was successfully run and we successfully acquired data from twitter containing tweets containing selected username. Now we can write code that will insert this data into Firebase Realtime Database. So if we want to insert this data into Firebase Realtime Database we should write code similar to what shown in the picture below:

In this code snippet we are inserting data into FS(firebase. object. Then we are creating a child node named “status” (in my case it is “data”. After that we are inserting data into this node (in my case it is an array containing tweets. Finally we are calling set(. method of FS object which will actually save data in Firebase Realtime Database and later on display it on our webpage using AngularJS framework (we will discuss AngularJS framework in detail later. Here is a link which explains Firebase’s set(. method in detail http://firebase.google.com/docs/database/data-storage#save . Here is another code snippet which creates child node named “user” (in my case it is “url”. And once again we are inserting data into this node (in my case it is an array containing URLs of twitter profiles. This is how Firebase Realtime Database works for now but if you want it to work like the way I showed in the picture above then you have to fplow these steps:

You have to specify a unique key for each child node. You can do this by adding @key attribute to the path parameter of your child nodes i.e @key="<your key here>" . For example you want to create a child node named “status” with key “1” then you should add @key="1" to your path parameter i.e @key="https://twitter.com/users/show/<username>". Similarly for child node named “user” with key “url” we should add @key="url" i.e @key="https://twitter.com/users/show/<username>/url". If you don’t specify any key then by default Firebase Realtime Database will allocate keys starting with “0” but if you would like to specify some other number as key then you can do so by specifying an appropriate key range i.e @key="0:<number>" . For example we want to make the key range start from 100 then we should add @key="100:200" . If you don’t specify any key range then by default Firebase Realtime Database will allocate keys starting from 0 but if you would like to specify some other number then you can specify it by adding @key="0:<number>" . For example we want to make the key range start from 100 then we should add @key="100:200" . At last if you don’t want any key range then simply remove @key attribute from your path parameter i.e @key=" . Now let’s trace back how this code snippet works. We are creating two child nodes named “status” and “user” respectively which will have unique key “1” and “url” respectively because we have specified their key values using @key attribute properly. Then we are inserting data into these child nodes via an array which contains tweets (for child node “status”. and URLs of twitter profiles (for child node “user”. Finally we are calling set(. method of FS object which finally saves data in Firebase Realtime Database. In order to view saved data from Firebase Realtime Database in our webpages i.e in our AngularJS application we have to fplow these steps. Create Node module which will be responsible for displaying data retrieved from Firebase Realtime Database on our webpage i.e in our AngularJS application. This Node module has one method called getData(. Add this Node module as an attribute of HTML element which needs data retrieved from Firebase Realtime Database (in my case it is div element whose id attribute is firstFirebaseNode. In order to do that simply add ng-app attribute to HTML element whose id attribute is firstFirebaseNode i.e <div id="firstFirebaseNode" ng-app="FirebaseApp"></div>. Here is how our HTML looks before integrating Firebase Realtime Database and Twitter. And here is how it looks after integrating Firebase Realtime Database and Twitter. Now let’s see how this Node module works. We are creating new instance of FS(. object i.e var fs = new Firebase('https:/ikhilpaisondata2b1d2f8a7a9c05c98c30d872b16b6a971d94c4b2cf8634f6aa4c12a28348b9ced23f4f3b37d68d39c5cdbf2845bc1b7d6dcfb1a8f', {authDomain:'nikhilpaisondata2b1d2f8a7a9c05c98c30d872b16
