Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See deployment for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.

You need a node version > v9

npm -v # need to be > v9

# if not:
npm install -g n # install node version manager
n latest # get latest node version
# install dependencies
$ npm install # Or yarn install


We need to install firebase tools to deploy.

$ npm install -g firebase-tools

Tell firebase to use the default enviroment

firebase use default

Initiate a connection to firebase:

firebase login

Firebase Setup

Because we don't want to share Firebase credential we need to create a firebase.js file in the root of the project. It will look something like this:

module.exports = {
  'apiKey': 'info-from-firebase-web-instructions',
  'authDomain': 'info-from-firebase-web-instructions',
  'databaseURL': 'info-from-firebase-web-instructions',
  'projectId': 'info-from-firebase-web-instructions',
  'storageBucket': 'info-from-firebase-web-instructions',
  'messagingSenderId': 'info-from-firebase-web-instructions'

Configuration keys

To use MailerLite, SparkPost, and stripe we need to configure enviroment keys using this command:

$ firebase functions:config:set mailerlite.key="THE KEY"
$ firebase functions:config:set sparkpost.key="THE KEY"
$ firebase functions:config:set stripe.token="THE KEY"

To list the current config:

$ firebase functions:config:get


In order to keep other users from writing to paths they don't own, we need to add some rules to the database:

  "rules": {
    "accounts": {
      "$uid": {
        ".read": "$uid === auth.uid",
        ".write": "$uid === auth.uid"

Social Logins

We will setup social login for Google and Github. We will need to login to your Firebase console and enable those signin methods. Google will work out-of-the-box with any Firebase app. But we will need to create a new oAuth application if we would like to use Github signin.


We use Cypress to test

$(npm bin)/cypress open



# serve with hot reloading at localhost:3000
$ npm run dev

Go to http://localhost:3000


This is just in case we want to deploy on differrent server then firebase hosting

# build for production and launch the server
$ npm run build
$ npm start


# generate a static project
$ npm run generate


You should probably generate the static porject before you deploy as the deployment take every static output from nuxt to the dist folder, which is then copy over to firebase host folder. The functions folder is also copy over and help us to repsond to specific backend tasks.

# deploy the complete solution:
$ firebase deploy
# deploy only the functions:
$ firebase deploy --only functions
# deploy only the generated static pages:
$ firebase deploy --only hosting
# Shortcut that you should probably use all the time for deployment:
$ npm run generate; firebase deploy

Staging vs production

You can deploy on staging or in production with this command:

# deploy solution in production
$ firebase use default
# deploy solution on staging
$ firebase use staging

You can control which database you want to use using the firebase.js file (this file is private and not in github) firebase.js file you should update the env variable to 'staging' or 'production'.

All the paths to images and data are connected according to this settings. So you can deploy staging env using production database if you want.
