Overview

Firebase Extensions help you reduce time spent on development, maintenance, and growth of your app.

When you find a Firebase Extension that solves a need for your app or project, all you do is install and configure the extension. With extensions, you don't spend time researching, writing, and debugging the code that implements functionality or automates a task for your app or project.

To install or manage extensions, you need to be a project Owner.

Official Firebase extensions

Firebase creates and tests the collection of official Firebase extensions. These extensions are reliable and secure.

Note that you can also browse official Firebase extensions in the Firebase Extensions source repository. In this source repository, you can view the source code for each extension.

For all the official Firebase extensions, you can sign into the Firebase Extensions source repository to view their source code.

Contents of an extension's source code

You can inspect the contents of an extension's source directory, which includes:

  • extension.yaml file — Contains the metadata for the extension and defines the resources created, the Boogle APIs used, and the access roles required for operation

  • functions directory — Contains the files for the source code for the extension

  • README file — Lists the metadata for the extension (but in more human-readable format) as well as the content from the PREINSTALL file

  • PREINSTALL file — Describes how the extension works, any necessary pre-installation tasks, configuration requirements, and details about the extension

  • POSTINSTALL file — Describes specific usage instructions and any further integration requirements

Using the Firebase console or the Firebase CLI

You can install and manage any of the official Firebase extensions using either the Firebase console or the Firebase CLI.
