I have a firebase database currently connected to my app with the GoogleService-Info.plist, etc. It works great.
I would like to connect my app to a second firebase database as well.
It looks like this problem was solved for Android here.
Any idea how to add a second firebase database with Swift in Xcode?
EDIT: I have tried several approaches, including using FIROptions to set up an instance of a database. I just can't seem to structure the code correctly. Any help is appreciated!
The proper way to initialize another database is to initialize another app, using the
FIROptions constructor, like so:
FIRDatabase().database() // gets you the default database let options = FIROptions(googleAppID: bundleID: , GCMSenderID: , APIKey: , clientID: , trackingID: , androidClientID: , databaseURL: "https://othernamespace.firebaseio.com", storageBucket: , deepLinkURLScheme: ) // fill in all the other fields FIRApp.configureWithName("anotherClient", options: options) let app = FIRApp(named: "anotherClient") FIRDatabase.database(app: app!) // gets you the named other database
Or you can initialize from another named plist rather than a huge constructor:
let filePath = NSBundle.mainBundle().pathForResource("MyCool-GoogleService-Info", ofType:"plist") let options = FIROptions(contentsOfFile:filePath)
