Firebase Tutorial for iOS – Ep 2 – Firebase App Setup

Firebase Tutorial for iOS Apps
Lesson 2: Firebase App Setup
In this lesson, you’re going to sign up for Firebase, set up your Firebase App project and download the configuration file for your database so that we can import it into our Xcode project in Lesson 3.

This video series uses the latest and greatest from Apple (Xcode 8, Swift 3, iOS 10) and Google (Firebase) to create a messaging app with database features.

This series is intended for intermediate programmers or people who have gone through my Beginner series which can be found here:

    Thanx chris for this wonderful series

    Chris – thanks so much. I did well until adding the bundle ID. When I do, it says "You already have an app with that bundle ID. " Yes, I know that. I'm trying to add Firebase (and admob) to an existing app. Can you only add it to brand new apps? That doesn't make sense. How do I get firebase on an existing app when it won't let me put the Bundle ID there?

    Thanks for the video.

    Do you need a mac to develop iOS apps with this software?

    How complicated can the apps get?

    This looks a lot like Parse. Is Firebase similar in features?
