Getting Started with Firebase

Firebase is a mobile app platform with integrated, unified client libraries in various mobile programming languages. Firebase's different backend-as-a-service (BaaS) features help you develop high-quality apps, grow your user base, and earn more money. Each feature works independently, and they work even better together.

To use the Cloud Firestore mobile/web client libraries and other Firebase features, add Firebase to your existing Google project.

  1. Import your existing Google project to Firebase:

    1. Log in to the Firebase console and click Import Google Project.
    2. Select your project from the list and confirm your billing country/region. Click Add Firebase.
    3. Confirm your billing plan and click Confirm Plan.
  2. Enable authentication for your Firebase project to use Cloud Firestore:

    1. In the Firebase console, click Authentication from the navigation panel.
    2. Go to the Sign-in Method tab.
    3. Enable Email/Password and Google authentication.
  3. Follow the steps to add Firebase to your project for iOS, Android, or Web.
