Firebase's Authentication API

In this lesson, we'll figure out a way to establish communication between the Firebase API and our Firebase class.

In the previous lessons, we created a Firebase project on the official Firebase website. Now, we will implement the interface of our Firebase class which will enable communication between the class and the Firebase authentication API. In the upcoming lessons, we will be using the interface of the Firebase class in our React components.

Enabling Authentication

First, we need to activate one of the available authentication providers on Firebase’s website. To do this, follow these instructions:

  • On the project’s Firebase dashboard, click on the Authentication option in the DEVELOP section.
  • Select the Sign-In Method menu item.
  • Set the authentication with Email/Password to Enabled.
