Getting started with Firebase Hosting
npm i -g firebase-tools firebase login # will be redirected to Google Auth page cd /your-project-directory firebase init # initialize a project # go through the initialization options firebase deploy # deploy a site # a public URL will be provided where you can see your websites firebase open # Hosting: Deployed Site firebase use --add # setup a staging environment (add a project alias) firebase use foo # use foo environment firebase deploy # deploy changes to foo (whatever env you are in)
You can only create a project through the Firebase console. In order to manage projects with the CLI, you should create it at the web interface first.
A project directory must have a
firebase.json to be able to deploy, which is created for you when you run
firebase init. Alias definitions are written to a hidden file called
.firebaserc, this file gets updated when you add an alias with
firebase use --add.
Connect a custom domain name
Connect a domain
From the Hosting panel of the Firebase Console for your project, select Connect Domain.
Domain ownership verification
You’ll need to either add a
TXT record at your domain host, or upload a file to your site to prove domain ownership.
Point at Firebase hosting
To point your domain to Firebase Hosting you’ll need to add/update a
CNAME (for subdomains) or an
A (domains without subdomains) record.
Wait for SSL certificate provisioning
After domain is provisioned, SSL provisioning starts and can take several hours.
