Below are screenshots of the steps necessary to get going on your first project with Flamelink. These steps follow the same outline as the video screencast above.

STEP 1: Sign In to Firebase at with your gmail account.

STEP 2: Go to your Firebase Console and “Add Project” (you can also use an existing project).

STEP 3: On your Firebase project dashboard, click on the “Add Firebase to your web app” icon.

Step 4: Click the COPY button to grab the code snippet.

STEP 5: Sign up with Flamelink at .

STEP 6: Verify your email address and Login.

Once you have logged in to Flamelink, if this is your first project you will be presented with a wizard to add your project and link with Firebase.

STEP 7: Paste your web app code from the step above within the Application Code input

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

  • Within Firebase, under the DEVELOP menu item, select Authentication
  • Click the SET UP SIGN-IN METHOD button
  • Select Email/Password at the top
  • Enable this and click SAVE

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 { 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.
