  CollectionReference usersCollection =
  FirebaseFirestore.instance.collection('users');

  Future<List<User>> getUsers() async {
    var data = await http
        .get("https://www.json-generator.com/api/json/get/bYKKPeXRcO?indent=2");
    var jasonData = json.decode(data.body);
    List<User> users = [];

    for (var i in jasonData) {
      User user = User(i["index"], i["about"], i["name"], i["picture"],

To push an object to Firestore you need to convert your object to map.
You can just add this function to your class:

  Map<String, dynamic> toMap() {
    return {
      'field1': value1,
      'field2': value1,
    };
  }

To push a List , you need to convert all objects to map, you can do it with following method:

  static List<Map> ConvertToMap({List myList }) {
    List<Map> steps = [];
    myList.forEach((var value) {
      Map step = value.toMap();
      steps.add(step);
    });
    return steps;
  }

Or simply , see how to convert List to Map

I hope it will be useful

Firebase realtime database and firestore are no SQL databases where data will be stored in Parent child relation or Tree structure.

For you to store list of data you can convert your list into Map Map can be initialised as follows

Map<String, String> toMap() {
  return {
    'Fruit': "Mango",
    'Flower': "Lotus",
    'Vegetable': "Potato",
  };
}

After you have Map you can set value to the firestore. You can use the below code to set value

Map<String, Object> city = new Map<>();
//Loop through your list and load Map (City) values
db.collection("cities").document("LA").set(city)
.addOnSuccessListener(new OnSuccessListener<Void>() {
    @Override
    public void onSuccess(Void aVoid) {
    Log.d(TAG, "DocumentSnapshot successfully written!");
    }
}).addOnFailureListener(new OnFailureListener() {
    @Override
    public void onFailure(@NonNull Exception e) {
    Log.w(TAG, "Error writing document", e);
    }
});

You can convert List of items to map using this

To push this list to Firestore you need to fromJson and toJson methods in your model class

 factory User.fromJson(Map<String, dynamic> data){
    return User(
        index: data['index'] as int,
        about: data['about'] as String,
        name: data['name'] as String,
        picture: data['picture'] as String,
        company: data['company'] as String,
        email: data['email'] as String );
  }

  Map<String, dynamic> toJson(){

    return {
        "index": index,
        "about" : about,
        "name" : name,
        "picture" : picture,
        "company" : company,
        "email" : email,
    };
  }

instead that I would like to suggest using json_serializable library

then you need to do some changes in your future method like this

getUsers().then((users) {
// add users to map
});

and then you can use fromJson method to push it to firestore database
