Deploying to Firebase Hosting

Deploy the Ionic Progressive Web App (PWA) to Firebase Hosting.

Firebase Hosting

Firebase Hosting provides the following benefits for developers looking to host their PWAs:

  • SSL certificate enabled by default with no complicated set-up process required.
  • 1GB storage with the free developer plan.
  • 10GB data transfer monthly allowance with the free developer plan.
  • Custom domains.
  • Simple deployment process.

It’s important to note at this point that we can use Firebase Hosting without having to use any of the other services provided by this BaaS, although we will need to create a new project (or select an existing one) to enable Firebase Hosting.
