some time ago I posted about my open source project: Firebase4Delphi. Well, Firebase was acquired by Google and in Google I/O 2016 was showed very interesting news and new features (more info here ). My project provide a REST facade to consume FIREBASE RealTime Database API.
Once you create your application you can start to use the Chat Messaging sample, it's very easy if you follow these steps:
- Create a clone of Firebase4Delphi project (or download it)
- Open Firebase4DelphiChatDemo.dproj
- Deploy the app on your favorite Target Platoform (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS)
- Once application started, put in the settings tab (Fig 1) the URL provided by Firebase Realtime Database related to your project (Fig 2) , adding the demo name "chatdemo" as REST parameter
- Choose a username
- Click Start Chat button
