Firebase RT database


I am new here, so sorry for the basic question but I could not find a solution yet. I just created a variable and want to store that in Firestore. I have connected my project with Google Firestore. I watched some tutorials and saw how people dragged the RT Firebase component onto the screen, but unfortunately, I cannot find that component. Where can I find that?

Many thanks

Welcome to the community

The RTDB component is not any more available. Now you just need to create a cloud variable. Whatever you assign to the variable is stored in the Firebase database.


Thanks for letting me know. However, I am not sure how to store a variable in the database. I have created a variable and initialised as cloud, but I cannot select 'in RT Databse anymore and define its key, value. How does that work? You can find a picture attached.

So, assuming you have a key (node) in your database with the name PASSWORDS and it has sub-keys for each user such as John or muneer then you will create a cloud variable using the dynamic block

Hope this clarifies the issue

This topic explains it all

Thanks a lot. And how can I retrieve data then from Firebase? I created an image component and want to get that image file from Firebase to display it in the image component.
How would that work?

Reading data is basically reading the value of the cloud variable.

Images take a different turn for Firebase. Save the image in a location or an image repository such as imageDB/cloudinary and save the URL of the image in Firebase database.
