Angular Firebase Observable – Simple Weather Example

In preparation for Angular 2, we have been digging into its capabilities extensively. One of the most interesting areas is around Observables, as mentioned in a blog post and video a couple of weeks ago. Here is more along the same lines, this time using Firebase.

This is intentionally a relatively straightforward and simplistic example – it uses Firebase, but you are unlikely to see any data change in “real-time”. Rather, the point of this example is that even when not expecting data to change, with Angular 2 it is hardly any more work to implement “push” updates.
