Using UseEffect with Firebase Realtime Database
In my current project I’m working on, I’m building up a React application. This app will replace an existing desktop, Windows-only Python 2 app that a client has had for around 8 years. The client uses Firebase Realtime database for their existing data, and rather than try to solve their data problems, I’ll fit this data into the application using useEffect and the Firebase SDK: https://github.com/firebase/firebase-js-sdk. Modern React + Hooks It’s been many years since I’ve written a React application, and since then Hooks have taken over by storm.
