Here’s a short practice exercise for using Firebase:
- Create a new Firebase project in the Firebase console.
- Enable the Firebase Authentication service and configure it to allow email and password authentication.
- Create a simple HTML form that allows users to enter their email and password.
- Use the Firebase SDK to add code to your application that signs the user in using the email and password they entered in the form.
- Once the user is signed in, display their email address on the screen.
- Enable the Firebase Realtime Database service and create a new database.
- Write some code to read and write data to the database from your application.
- Test your application to make sure everything is working as expected.
- Optionally, add some additional features to your application, such as storing user data in the database or creating custom security rules for the database.
By completing this exercise, you’ll gain hands-on experience with some of the basic features of Firebase, including authentication and real-time databases. You can build on this foundation to create more advanced applications with Firebase’s other features, such as hosting, cloud storage, and machine learning.
