Deploy to Firebase Hosting from GitHub
Follow the steps to deploy to Firebase hosting from GitHub via Travis CI
This is the detailed version of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLVzozWDYAs.
We will the setup the below flow.
Apps are developed on local developer machines
Pushed to GitHub
Travis CI deploys the app to Firebase Hosting from GitHub
I assume that you have:
Basic understanding of Firebase
Installed firebase tools
Setting up GitHub
Login to GitHub
Create a new repository
Open command prompt, Navigate to your working directory
clone the repository to the directory
git clone repositoryname.git
Setting up Firebase
Login to Firebase, Go to Firebase console
Add a new project
come back to the command line
Login to your account
Initialise firebase app
choose a project
Type yes to Install the dependencies
To integrate with Travis CI, we would need Firebase token.
Type in command line
This will open up a browser to sign in once more
Copy the token, we will need this for Travis CI
Create .travis.yml file in the root of the project, and paste the following in file
Make sure you replace projectId with the actual projectId, which can be found in the firebase console
projectId can be found in Firebase console
Setting Up Travis CI
Login to travis-ci.org
Click on signin with GitHub
Click on “+” sign next to my repositories
All the GitHub projects will be listed.
If not visible click on “Sync Account”
Next to the Repository name click on “x” button to flip the switch
Now click the gear icon before the repository.
Under “Environment Variables” add
“FIREBASE_TOKEN” and the previously generated token via firebase login:ci
This will help Travis CI to deploy to Firebase Hosting
Come back to command line, and do a git push to the GitHub repo
git add .
git commit -m “commit message”
git push origin master
After these three the code gets pushed to GitHub, from there Travis CI starts the process, Ideally you would run the tests in Travis CI, for simplicity of the setup , there are no running tests.
Thats it !! The app is deployed to Firebase Hosting.
