Hosting a Website (2 Part Series)
I love how easy it is to host a website with Firebase.
Create a project in the Firebase console by just a few clicks.
If you haven't used firebase before, install the cli and login:
npm i -g firebase-tools firebase login
Then initiate your project:
Select "Hosting" with space then enter. Then select the project created in the Firebase console. Then enter the path to the folder your index.html file is located (i.e. public). If you have a single-page app and want all urls to point to index.html select yes.
Congratulations, you have now hosted your website. You will find your page as a subdomain of firebaseapp.com and web.app. Like this https://projectid.firebaseapp.com and https://projectid.web.app. If you need your own domain, just go to Hosting in the firebase console and press the Connect domain button. Each time you need to update the content, just make the changes and hit firebase deploy again.
Check out Firebase for more information.
firebase init firebase deploy
That's all, thank you for reading 🔥💙
This article is part of Hosting a Website series, I usually choose Firebase when I want to deploy manually or are using other Firebase products and Netlify if I want CD (continuous delivery). Though both manually and CD is possible to achieve with both of them.
