Refer to the following image to save your CREDENTIALS json file

Let’s coding

from google.cloud import storage
from firebase import firebase
import os
# You just get your CREDENTIALS on previous step
db_url='https://test-XXXXX.firebaseio.com' # Your project url
firebase = firebase.FirebaseApplication(db_url,None)
client = storage.Client()
bucket = client.get_bucket('test-XXXXX.appspot.com')
imageBlob = bucket.blob("/")
imagePath = "path/to/dir/" + fileName # Replace with your own path
imageBlob = bucket.blob(fileName)
imageBlob.upload_from_filename(imagePath) # Upload your image
