How do I connect with firebase's real-time database, correctly?

  • Hi all. I'm trying to create a textbox for people to write messages/clues in. Once they do, they can save/store it. Once saved, the messages are stored in a list, using local storage. The user can now, in real-time, choose difference messages and clues, coming in from all around the world!

    The problem is, I keep building and testing, on my two Samsung phones, to see if the real-time data storage is actually working between the two phones, but again, it's not working. It stores locally, but doesn't seem to be connecting with firebase's real-time database.

    Can someone please help? (I'm stuck on how to connect the database correctly.)

    This is what I've done, so far...

  • Bump... Common. This is my last step. Once I figure out how to do this correctly, I can finally post my game on the Play Store! Please, guys, I really need some help.

  • Ashley can you please help me with my problem?

  • I have same problem bro

    First there was a link in GStrore that should generate code automaticly. I placed it into project then converted via Cocoon. But statistics didn't work.

    I dont know for whom are those official guides but ut they looks crazy.

    Sorry to hear that marcinkowski ... Yeah, I'm clearly missing a piece of essential code. I was using this (https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/9500/how-to-use-firebase-realtime-db-in-depth-tutorial/page-2) tutorial, but it's not working.

    I asked Ashley to help, so... hopefully we can get some help.

  • Bump... Please... Someone.... Anyone! Ashley, can you please help us out?

  • Ughh.... PLEAASSE.... I REALLY NEED HELP... I KNOW IT'S AN EASY FIX... WHY IS NO ONE WILLING TO HELP WITH THIS?! I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO AT THIS POINT, BUT KEEP ASKING... For some reason, even Ashley won't respond.... I seriously don't get it.

    I had some problems with firebase earlier. It said "Online" only the first time I enter my game. Then it just said "Offline". So i'm not sure if it's the same problem as yours.

    But in your code I don't see any actions which would save data after touching the button. You have to save it every time you update data. Also check rexrainbow's example on his official website

  • norman74 Thanks for responding! Which actions do I use to the save data after touching the button? I guess that's what I here trying to figure out... I didn't realize I needed to add that piece of code in. I would need some example or capx to figure out what I'm supposed to do.

    Sorry that didn't respond for a long time

    Here's a very simple example with some comments.

  • norman74 Thanks so much! Like this... dropbox.com/s/qfkpl5s64wg9ihp/Implimented.JPG Or do I need to add something else to those pieces of code you showed me?

  • guannstar

    No, that's all you need. Also you can put actions near to each other (in one condition). I just separated them to insert comments.

    And remember about firebase free account limits. If you are targeting on a big audience, first you should check another paid plans.

  • norman74 Thanks, again, friend! Can I change my account plan at a later date (if my app happens to do extremely well), or should I look for another paid plan now?

  • I'll let you know how everything goes (if the app works), tomorrow. Thanks, again!

    Well, probably the free plan will be enough for you for the first month, because usually you don't get a lot of popularity until some weeks were passed. At least this rule works for Google Play
