Are you a Firebase Developer looking for an easy-to-use interface to add, manage and update content in your Firebase projects?

Well, look no further. Flamelink.io is a headless CMS that seamlessly integrates with Google’s Firebase and allows Firebase Developers to keep on writing smoking hot code while allowing Content Managers to effortlessly add, manage and update content on the fly.

Our teams have been hard at work over the holidays. Our technical wizards have been working on some fixes and features to help make Flamelink a really powerful tool in your development toolbox, while our marketing team has been creating the first of many super helpful video tutorials where we’ll show you how you can get started with Flamelink, a headless CMS for Google’s Firebase.

In the below video we’ll walk you through hooking Flamelink up to Firebase and adding your first project.

STEP 8: Check “I have enabled email/password authentication for this project”.

STEP 9: Check “I have updated my database rules for this project”

The following database rules will ensure you can correctly save data to Firebase:

{  “rules”: {  “.read”: “auth != null”, “.write”: “auth != null”, “flamelink”: {  “.read”: “auth != null”, “.write”: “auth != null” }  }}

STEP 10: Check “I have updated my storage bucket rules for this project”

It is required to update your storage bucket rules to include the Flamelink namespace to read and writing access as follows:

service firebase.storage { match /b/{bucket}/o { match /{allPaths=**} { allow read, write: if request.auth != null; } match /flamelink/{allPaths=**} { allow read; allow write: if request.auth != null; } }}

The final step is to enter the initial user you would like to register for the project

  • By adding the project, you will be deemed the project owner. If you choose “Use my credentials” we will create the initial user with your current login details.
  • The initial user will be created with your current Flamelink username and password, however if they are different, you will be prompted to enter the password used to setup your Firebase account.
  • Note that you can also add additional users to the project via the “users” section of Flamelink.
