🚀 How To Integrate Firebase Authentication With an Expo App

Published an up-to-date tutorial on how to integrate authentication using Firebase JS SDK and Expo. It’s a topic that has been requested more than once in the past few months.

In a nutshell, here is what the tutorial covers:

  • using environment variables with expo-constants package;

  • create sample screens to display forms (login, sign-up);

  • create a home screen that only a logged-in user can access;

  • create different navigators using the react-navigation library;

  • create an auth flow by conditionally rendering between these navigators when a user is logged in or not;

  • and integrate Firebase Auth with the email/password method.

But Stripe's no-code way to enable payments in an app goes beyond that.
