Using firebase package with functions

I’m trying to use the firebase package within my functions. It works locally just fine, but when I deploy I get an error when trying to use my functions.

Based on a Stack Overflow question that describes a similar problem, it seems like it may have to do with the node version on AWS. Is there anything I can do about this?

Error message:

  "errorMessage": "The gRPC binary module was not installed. This may be fixed by running \"npm rebuild\"\nOriginal error: Cannot find module '/var/task/node_modules/grpc/src/node/extension_binary/node-v57-linux-x64-glibc/grpc_node.node'",

Hi @sethbaur,

It seems the gRPC recommends using node10. Can you try setting an env var named AWS_LAMBDA_JS_RUNTIME with the value of nodejs10.x and see if that helps? Setting which version of Node to use in functions is mentioned in our functions doc.
