Cloud Firestore

This SDK provides a bridge to the google/cloud-firestore package. You can enable the component in the SDK by adding the package to your project dependencies:

composer require google/cloud-firestore

Before you start, please read about Firestore in the official documentation:

use Kreait\Firebase\Firestore;

class MyService
    public function __construct(Firestore $firestore)
        $this->firestore = $firestore;

With the Laravel app() helper (Laravel/Lumen Package)

$firestore = app('firebase.firestore');
