There's a lot of options cheap or even free in the market to deploy our projects. One of these and my favorite is the Firebase Hosting, a service of Google.
This is my first post written in English. I'm from Brazil and I decided to try to write a series of articles in a new language with more reach than Portuguese using a translator eventually because I'm not fluent yet. So, I ask you for feedback and corrections if you find any errors. Thanks!
I'll show you how to deploy a simple website in the Firebase Hosting at zero cost.
We need to click in "Go to console" in the top right corner.
So the Firebase console. Now, we gonna create a project by clicking in "Adicionar projeto" (I didn't find how to change the language on the firebase console)
Now, we chosen the name of the project and keep on! In the mine, I've chosen the name "Firebase Lab"
Here you can disable google analytics for now:
The project finally created:
We gonna create a folder and a simple html:
$ mkdir firebase-lab-website
Look at our simple html in the folder:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>Firebase Lab</title> </head> <body> <h1>Firebase Lab</h1> </body> </html>
Now, we need to install the CLI of the firebase with the command below:
$ npm install -g firebase-tools
Now, we need login:
$ firebase login
After that, execute this command in the website directory and choose the right project:
$ firebase init
First, you select the option "Hosting: Configure and deploy Firebase Hosting sites" with the space bar and press Enter.
Second, choose the option "Use an existing project" by press Enter.
Third, choose the project that you created.
Fourth, enter the folder of your index.html. The default is "public", but in my case, is "./".
Last, we need to say if your website is a single-page app.
All ready! Now, the last command in the directory is to deploy:
$ firebase deploy
Our website is online!!
You can see details of the deploy in the option "Hosting" at the left menu:
Give me feedback! :) Thanks!
