Google Firebase Database API - How To

Google’s Firebase Realtime Database is a cloud-based data storage solution. This database stores data in JSON and conveys real time data to connected clients. The Google Firebase Realtime Database API allows developers to deploy Google’s Android, iOS, and JavaScript SDKs in the construction of apps that support shared access by clients to a particular Realtime Database occurrence. The RESTful API requires token authentication, sends HTTP-formatted requests, and returns JSON-formatted responses. The appendage of .json at the end of the API’s URL or endpoint is sufficient to send a request to the HTTPS client.
