A Vue.js 2 admin app, based on vue-admin, using vuex, vuexfire, vue-router and firebase as the backend.

This project aims to be a template for using Firebase as a backend, and vue-admin as a frontend.

A lot of work has been done in a private repository and I'm currently in the progress of migrating this across to this public repo.

Current features developed:

  • Vuexfire for Firebase integration
  • Firebase auth
  • Ability to set a password (including Firebase reauth flow handling)
  • Ability to link multiple auth providers
  • Frontend Notification dispatching system (ie. not integrated with Cloud Messaging) and default notifications
  • Protected Routes
  • A User dashboard
  • A basic User Notes taking feature, where completed / incompleted notes are shown on the User dashboard. Along with new note form that accepts a title, and wysiwyg body field (Quill)


NOTE: This app assumes you have a working Firebase instance with at least one of the auth providers; Google, Facebook, Github or Password enabled.

  1. Update config/firebase.env.js with your firebase config variables
  2. npm install
  3. npm run dev

Firebase Rules

This app requires the following firebase rules (for notes facility)

  "rules": {
    // ".read": true,
    // ".write": false,
    "users": {
      ".indexOn": "ID",
      "$uid": {
        ".validate": "$uid === auth.uid",
        // grants write access to the owner of this user account
        // whose uid must exactly match the key ($uid)
        ".write": "$uid === auth.uid",
        ".read": "auth != null && auth.uid == $uid"
    "notes": {
      ".indexOn": "uid",
        ".read" : "data.child(auth.uid).exists()",
      "$uid": {
        ".write": "$uid == auth.uid",



If you already have data at these refs, be sure to change the ref names in the file /client/firebase-setup/ref-types.js. Otherwise, it will most likely be overwritten.

Additional work

I have a companion node.js server app that runs on heroku. It watches the firebase database and performs database actions using firebase-admin sdk.

I will aim to make this app publicly available too, but optional (ie. not required for vuexfire-admin to work).
