Still, we will start to create a react native app and set up screen navigation with React navigation. inspired by React native template from instamobile

your can view the previous chapter here

this chapter we gonna implement Google login for iOS first I will try summarize what thing we will do in this chapter first we install react native google login package second we run cacao pod then we go to Xcode for config URL type lasting we activate Google login on Firebase finally with add sample code to our app and done

Install React native Google Login package

first install the package with yarn or npm

yarn add @react-native-community/google-signin

then install Cacao pod package

cd ios && pod install && cd ..

then close packager and re-run terminal again

Add URL Type in Xcode

for Reserved client id we just

and grab REVERSED_CLIENT_ID add to URL Type

Activate Google Login on Firebase

next, we need to activate google login on Firebase

Firebase will take care of all everything

Adding sample code on our app

now we can make authentication with simple code in LoginScreen.js

async googleLogin() {
    try {
      // add any configuration settings here:
      await GoogleSignin.configure();

      const data = await GoogleSignin.signIn();

      // create a new firebase credential with the token
      const credential = firebase.auth.GoogleAuthProvider.credential(
      // login with credential
      const firebaseUserCredential = await firebase

    } catch (e) {

we activate google login then grab idToken and accessToken then assign to Firebase and login with credential that got from Firebase

lastly, wrap google icon with TouchableOpacity help activate authentication

<TouchableOpacity onPress={() => this.googleLogin()}>
  <SocialIcon type="google" light />

and let’s try login

and user data will show up below


this chapter we learn how to config google login on Xcode and React Native also on Firebase too is quite easy for next chapter we will continued on Android part
