Firebase provides the tools and infrastructure you need to develop your app, grow your user base, and earn money. The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK enables access to Firebase services from privileged environments (such as servers or cloud) in Node.js.

For more information, visit the Firebase Admin SDK setup guide.


The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK is available on npm as firebase-admin:

$ npm install --save firebase-admin

To use the module in your application, require it from any JavaScript file:

var admin = require("firebase-admin");

If you are using ES2015, you can import the module instead:

import * as admin from "firebase-admin";
