Firebase API - SDKs

Firebase is an API that lets developers easily sync and store data in realtime. Developers can use the service to build their apps without having to manage servers or write server-side code. There are clients for Android, iOS and JavaScript (including bindings for Ember, React, Angular and Backbone). The API allows users to access the functionality of Firebase programmatically. The API supports standard CRUD operations on the data within the databases as well as querying of the data. Firebase uses WebSockets to achive realtime communication between clients. Data can also be accessed over the Firebase REST API. Firebase Simple Login is an additional service that allows developers to authenticate users using only client-side code. Enable authentication via a number of third-party providers, anonymous login, or email / password authentication without having to manually store authentication credentials or run a server. Firebase Hosting gives developers a fast, secure and reliable way to host their app's static assets such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and media files. It is backed by a global CDN, serves content over SSL by default, and is available either a custom domain or on a subdomain of
