If you have a WordPress website, you can integrate your website with Firebase. Firebase is Google’s mobile platform that you can use to build, improve, and extend your mobile applications.
To do this, you would have to install a plugin on your WordPress, that is: ‘Integrate Firebase’.
Some of the advantages of integrating your Firebase with WordPress using the plugin are:
- Sync your Firebase users with WordPress
- Save data in real time and in the firestore.
- Extract data from real-time and firestore
- Activate the Firebase user management under WordPress.
- Content management system for mobile applications from WordPress.
- Send push notifications
The integration of WordPress Firebase also adds functions for monitoring and changing the WordPress database.
Follow the steps below to proceed with WordPress Firebase integration using a plugin:
STEP 1: Install the ‘Integrate Firebase’ plugin
There are two ways to get the plugin:
- Method 1 (via the WordPress site directory)
- Method 2 (by manually uploading plugins)
