    I definitely agree. A realtime Firebase Database library is definitely a necessity these days and should be shipped with B4a/b4i. A realtime Firebase database has a lot of potential for mobile apps. I'm hoping Erel will find the time (soon) to make it happen.

    Just in case you're not aware of it, Don Manfred with the help of Fredo have a realtime Firebase library that is partially working. You can find it at: www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/firebase-realtimedatabase.69773/
    I think the latest version is v1.24 (post #34) from here: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/firebase-realtimedatabase.69773/page-2#post-455528

    I only mention it in case you want to get started right away and experiment with it until something better comes along or they finish it.

    Two questions to all members who are waiting for FirebaseDatabase:

    1. Are you aware to the fact that unlike most other Firebase features, this one is not free (the free plan is limited to 100 connected clients)?

    2. Have you tried to use CloudKVS: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/63536/#content ?
    While it is less sophisticated it solves a similar solution and it will be simpler to use. Another advantage is that you are not locked to any specific vendor and have full access to the server and the database.

    Hi Erel, thanks for pointing to CloudKVS, it is an awesome solution. However, Firebase is also pretty cool. And if I get more than 100 users I will have no problem paying for their services. Firebase realtime database would be awesome! Cheers!

    If I have more than 100 users online then I can change plan.
    A real-time database like firebase is very nice and it's fully scalable.

    +1 For sure! I don't mind the pricing at all considering scalability, being totally hands off once running, uptime, ddos protection etc.
