Deploy Angular 8 Application to Firebase Cloud Hosting

There are many options available today which provide free hosting with a limited set of features. Few most popular options are Heroku, AWS, Firebase. 

Firebase provides fast and secure hosting for your web app, static and dynamic content, and microservices including real-time database. Firebase is developed by Firebase Inc. in 2011, then acquired by Google in 2014 and jellify into the Google Cloud service.

In this tutorial, We will understand to deploy Angular 8 application on Firebase cloud hosting. If you don't have an understanding about the connection of Angular 8 app, Read the article my previous article on Firebase How to connect Firebase with Angular 8 Application from scratch

Step 1: Install the Firebase command line tool

I assume that you have already installed the angular app and connected with Firebase following the article on the above link, And you are in the project folder. Mow install firebase tools globally by running the below command on terminal

 

npm install -g firebase-tools

 

Step 2: Login using the Firebase CLI & initialize the project

After installing firebase tools, Next task is to login to firebase from terminal using below command:

 

firebase login

 

After running above command, a link will open on browser to login into google account. Once login a success message screen will open like below:

Fire login success message

 

Now the next task is to initialize the project using below  command:

firebase init

 

Few questions will be asked while running above command:

  • Which Firebase CLI features do you want to set up for this folder?
    Press space to select the required feature then enters to confirm your choices.
  • Select a default Firebase project for this directory:
    Select whichever app you have created.
  • What file should be used for Database Rules?
    Press enter to continue with database.rules.json
  • What do you want to use as your public directory? (public) dist/your-project-name

    After code compilation, Angular 8 app’s code goes here.

Once above command runs successfully, Message like below will show over terminal.

firebase init response

 

Step 3: Deploy the Angular app to Firebase

 

After we will create the production build with below command:

 

ng build --prod

 

Now we will deploy the Angular 8 application to Firebase coud hosting using Firebase CLI.

 

firebase deploy

 

Once the above command runs successfully, And app is deployed to Firebase. You will be able to see the hosting URL over the terminal. You can check your app with that link over browser.

 

Conclusion

We have successfully deployed the Angular 8 application to Firebase cloud hosting very easily in few minutes only. Firebase CLI has made the task super easy for a developer to deploy the app over Firebase Cloud hosting.
