Cloud Functions for Firebase Sample Library
This repository contains a collection of samples showcasing some typical uses of Cloud Functions for Firebase.
All samples use the Node 16 runtime and require the Blaze pay-as-you-go billing plan to deploy. Learn more about Cloud Functions for Firebase's Node versions here.
What's Cloud Functions for Firebase?
This repository contains a few categories of samples:
- Quickstarts are minimal examples for each types of triggers.
- Cloud Functions v2 public preview samples show how to use the public preview of Cloud Functions for Firebase v2.
- Image Processing shows a few ways you can process and transform images using Cloud Functions such as generating thumbnails, converting images extracting metadata...
- Firebase Realtime Database Data Consistency shows how to implement automatic data consistency such as keeping a count of children, having a max amount of node childs, cleaning up old data etc... for your Realtime Database.
- Other common usecases a set of other common usecases for Cloud Functions.
Here is a set of minimal samples for each Cloud Functions trigger types.
This quickstart sample demonstrates using Cloud Functions triggered by Firebase Realtime Database or Firestore events. The function transforms message text written to Firestore to uppercase.
This quickstart sample demonstrates using Cloud Functions triggered by HTTPS requests. The function returns the current server time and allows for date time formatting.
This quickstart demonstrates using Cloud Functions with an HTTPS trigger that's triggered through a Firebase Hosting URL. The function will display a repeated number of "BONG"s depending on the hour of the day.
This quickstart sample demonstrates using Cloud Functions triggered by Firebase Storage events. The function generates a thumbnail of uploaded images.
This quickstart sample demonstrates using Cloud Functions triggered by Firebase Auth events. The function sends a Welcome Email when user accounts are created (or when users sign-in using an Identity Provider for the first time) and sends a Goodbye Email when user accounts are deleted.
This quickstart sample demonstrates using Cloud Functions triggered by PubSub events. The functions log the PubSub payload in a Hello world message.
This quickstart demonstrates how to trigger a function in response to the completion of a test matrix in Firebase Test Lab.
Cloud Functions v2 public preview
Note: Cloud Functions for Firebase v2 is a public preview. This means that the functionality might change in backward-incompatible ways. A preview release is not subject to any SLA or deprecation policy and may receive limited or no support.
See the Firebase docs for more information about the v2 public preview.

Here are a few samples that show how you can process or analyze images using Cloud Functions.
This sample demonstrates how to create various customized images such as sparkline or sphere charts through Cloud Functions and Hosting and serve it to the client. Uses an HTTP trigger.
Demonstrates how to automatically convert images that are uploaded to Firebase Storage to JPEG using ImageMagick. Uses a Firebase Storage trigger.
Demonstrates how to automatically generate a thumbnail for images that are uploaded to Firebase Storage using ImageMagick and generate a public download link for the images. Uses a Firebase Storage trigger.
Demonstrates how to use Node.js Stream to read image from Cloud Storage, generate a thumbnail image using Sharp and upload it back to Cloud Storage. Uses a Firebase Storage trigger.
Demonstrates how to automatically moderate offensive images that are uploaded to Firebase Storage by using the Google Cloud Vision API to detect offensive images and ImageMagick to blur these images. Uses a Firebase Storage trigger.
Demonstrates how to automatically extract image's metadata using ImageMagick for images that are uploaded to Firebase Storage. Uses a Firebase Storage trigger.
Firebase Realtime Database Data Consistency
These samples show how to implement automatic data consistency such as keeping a count of children, having a max amount of node childs, cleaning up old data etc...
Tracking when the Firebase Database (or a subset) was last modified. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Keeps track of the number of child nodes of a Firebase Database element allowing clients to filter or order results using the child count. This can be useful to keep track of the number of "likes" or "followers" of something shared through social media. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Makes sure that the number of child nodes stays below a certain threshold. This can be useful to limit the number of lines of logs or chat history below a given number. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
This sample shows how to remove child nodes older than 2 hours from a Firebase Database list. This can be useful for removing outdated items from a collection. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Solve other common use cases
This sample demonstrates how to send a Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) notification from a Realtime Database triggered Function when users get new followers. The sample also features a Web UI to experience the FCM notification. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
This sample shows how to create an action for the Google Home/Assistant using the Actions SDK hosted on Cloud Functions. The sample action asks users to say a number and reads out the ordinal of that number. Uses an HTTP trigger.
This sample shows how to authenticate access to a JSON API to only allow access to data for a specific Firebase user. Uses an HTTP trigger.
This sample shows how to restrict an HTTPS Function to only the Firebase users of your app.
Only users who pass a valid Firebase ID token as a Bearer token in the
Authorization header of the HTTP request or in a
__session cookie are authorized to use the function.
Checking the ID token is done with an ExpressJs middleware that also passes the decoded ID token in the Express request object.
Uses an HTTP trigger.
Okta, LinkedIn, Spotify, Instagram, or Basic AuthAuthorize with
Demonstrates how to authorize with a 3rd party sign-in mechanism, create a Firebase custom auth token, update the user's profile and authorize Firebase. Uses an HTTP trigger.
Demonstrates how to automatically post GitHub commits to a Slack channel using an HTTPS triggered Function.
Demonstrates hows to integrate Firebase Auth and the Realtime database with Stripe via the Stripe Node.js library and shows how to create HTTP endpoints to charge customers via Paypal.
Demonstrates how to moderate user input text for bad words. This can be used to moderate usernames, chat or forum messages. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Sends email confirmation after users subscribed to a mailing list. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Integrates the Google Translate API to perform automatic text translation across any number of languages. Language codes can be stored in Firebase for on the fly changes. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Integrates the Bit.ly API to shorten URLs automatically as they are added to the database. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Enable full-text search on Firebase Database data or Firestore documents by using a hosted search service. Uses a Realtime Database or Firestore trigger.

Copies Firebase Database elements into BigQuery automatically. This can be useful for instance for further logs analysis. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
Writing to the Firebase Database triggers a request to a callback URL (a Webhook). The content of the modified Data is sent to the Webhook. Uses a Realtime Database trigger.
This sample shows how to send a survey to your users who have updated your app. App Update is detected using a Firebase Analytics event. Uses an Analytics trigger.
