Can I display Firebase data in Geckoboard?

While we don't have a dedicated Firebase integration – nor can you use our Google Analytics integration – there are a few methods you could use to display this data in Geckoboard:

Spreadsheets

If you can export the data from Firebase as a spreadsheet, you can use our Spreadsheets integration to build widgets from it. This is the simplest solution, but it has the drawback of not being automated.

One way to automate this process is to use a tool such as Zapier, Parabola.io or Integromat to export data from a product, and automatically transfer this data to a Google Sheet. Then display this data in Geckoboard using our Spreadsheets integration.

Connect your Google Sheet to Geckoboard

Datasets API

If you have programming experience or a developer available on your team, you can use our Datasets API to display data on your dashboard from a custom data source.

You would need to write a script/application that authenticates and connects to the Firebase API and requests the data. Then you can format the data as required and 'push' a dataset to Geckoboard for display.

Parabola.io

Parabola is a powerful tool that allows you to pull data from various custom sources, including APIs and they offer a direct integration with Geckoboard. This tool will allow you to pull your data from Firebase API and push it directly to Geckoboard Datasets API, with no coding required on your part.
