Code sample

Go

dsnap, err := client.Collection("cities").Doc("SF").Get(ctx)
if err != nil {
	return nil, err
}
m := dsnap.Data()
fmt.Printf("Document data: %#v\n", m)

Java

DocumentReference docRef = db.collection("cities").document("SF");
// asynchronously retrieve the document
ApiFuture<DocumentSnapshot> future = docRef.get();
// ...
// future.get() blocks on response
DocumentSnapshot document = future.get();
if (document.exists()) {
  System.out.println("Document data: " + document.getData());
} else {
  System.out.println("No such document!");
}

Node.js

const cityRef = db.collection('cities').doc('SF');
const doc = await cityRef.get();
if (!doc.exists) {
  console.log('No such document!');
} else {
  console.log('Document data:', doc.data());
}

PHP

$docRef = $db->collection('samples/php/cities')->document('SF');
$snapshot = $docRef->snapshot();

if ($snapshot->exists()) {
    printf('Document data:' . PHP_EOL);
    print_r($snapshot->data());
} else {
    printf('Document %s does not exist!' . PHP_EOL, $snapshot->id());
}

Python

doc_ref = db.collection(u'cities').document(u'SF')

doc = doc_ref.get()
if doc.exists:
    print(f'Document data: {doc.to_dict()}')
else:
    print(u'No such document!')

Ruby

doc_ref  = firestore.doc "#{collection_path}/SF"
snapshot = doc_ref.get
if snapshot.exists?
  puts "#{snapshot.document_id} data: #{snapshot.data}."
else
  puts "Document #{snapshot.document_id} does not exist!"
end
