firebaseUI Implementation on Expo


#1

Before, implementing firebaseUI, I just wanted to know if anyone has already implemnted it? and How is your experience with it? is it production ready? Does it support facebook login through the “facebook app” on the phone?

Hi @clarktank, thanks for checking out Expo.

Please check out the Firebase documentation here that we provide: https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/guides/using-firebase.html

The answer is yes! People have implemented Firebase, but there are some limitations

If you’re determined to use https://github.com/firebase/FirebaseUI-iOS or https://github.com/firebase/FirebaseUI-Android for some reason you may have to detach your Expo application. Which can be a hassle because it’s not the most beginner friendly process. https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/index.html

Let me know if I can be of any more help to you! :smiley:

Thanks for the reply, I rather stay on expo environment, since I don’t have a mac.

I have already managed to implement Firebases’s Email/Password and Facebook login with expo.
I guess that’s enough for now, until the full support for firebaseUI on expo comes.

Great! I’m glad it worked @clarktank - I hope that we can continue to provide the majority of what you need!
