Deploy an Angular App to Firebase

Introduction

 
In this article, we will learn how to deploy Angular in firebase.
 

What is Firebase?

 
It allows us to create web development applications without server-side programming, and its supports web, iOS, and Android platforms.
 

Firebase Deployment

 
We can follow the instructions for Firebase deployment, shown below:
  • Create a Firebase Project
  • Install Firebase tools
  • Build for production
  • Deploy to Firebase

Installing AngularCLI

 
Let’s get started by installing Angular CLI, which is the official tool for creating and working with Angular projects. Open a new terminal and run the below command.
 
npm install --g @angular/cli@next
 
Steps to follow:
 
Step 1
 
Create an Angular project setup using the below command, or however you want to create it.
 
ng new projectname
 
Example:
 
ng new angular-firebase

npm install firebase @angular/fire –save

Step 3 - Install Firebase Command Tools
 
Without Firebase tools, we will not be able to deploy Angular applications. Now, we will install firebase tools in our run command.
 
npm install -g firebase-tools

Step 4 - Log in to Firebase
 
Now, we must log in to the Firebase project.

  6.         databaseURL: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",  
  7.         projectId: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",  
  8.         storageBucket: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",  
  9.         messagingSenderId: "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"  
  10.     }  
  11. };
