A sample project exploring sign in/signup with Firebase using various methods.

The Goal

Since Firebase is one of the most popular platforms used for authentication, storage, and analytic features (to name a few), having a reusable framework handy will save time on future development of applications that integrate multiple means of authentication.

Features currently being explored

  • First name, last name, email, password and optional profile image for signup.
  • Email/password sign-in.
  • Facebook login.
  • Google sign-in.
  • Sign out.
  • Password reset.

Future plans

  • Code refactoring/restructuring/improvement.
  • Additional features & authentication methods.
  • Documentation.
  • Animations.
  • Unit tests.

Firestore over Realtime Database?

  • Firestore was created for mobile development.
  • Firestore is more accomodating when it comes to increased data complexity and interaction with large data sets.
  • Greater availability.
  • Potential offline interaction with local device data.
