Using firebase services without specific plugins


I’m often having problem when working with firebase and different firebase specific plugins, like firebase authentification or firebase messaging (compatibility, performance, …).

It made me wondering, is it possible to use simply firebase plugin in ionic 4, without using those specific plugins, and still use firebase auth and messaging ?

Is this what you are looking for?

npm package ‘@angular/fire’

exactly, I was using it, but never understood that I can use it standalone.

Thank you
