The Road to React with Firebase 

The Road to React with Firebase

Book Description:

The Road to React with Firebase is your journey to master advanced React for business web applications in JavaScript. In contrast, Firebase is used to replace everything that you would want from a backend application. Firebase enables you to connect your React application to a database, authenticate users with your application with login, logout, and register mechanisms, and authorize only certain users to access your application. It also has hosting capabilities and social logins via Google, Facebook, and more. The book will explain everything while building a business web application yourself.

I wrote The Road to React with Firebase over the last two years. During this time, I understood the practical genius of Firebase and how it dramatically reduces the tech stack to focus on getting sh*t done. Once you have set up your starter kit project — that’s what we will do together in this book — you are ready to iterate fast on your ideas. There is no need to complicate things by adding a backend application with a database to your frontend application because Firebase takes care of it with a well-designed API. I applied the same principles as my other books:

Stay pragmatic

Keep it simple

Answer the why, not just the how

Experience a problem, solve a problem

This book is not intended to be an end-all reference for the Firebase API nor an in-depth guide about the internals of Firebase. Instead, its purpose is to journey through learning Firebase with React the pragmatic way, building an entire application on this tech stack yourself. The result is the foundation to make your business application a reality.


To get the most out of this book, you should be familiar with web development basics, including knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You will also need to be familiar with the term API because APIs are used frequently for the applications in this book.

Editor/Terminal or IDE

For the development environment, use a running editor/terminal (command line tool) or IDE with the integrated terminal. I will provide a setup guide if you’re unsure which tools to use. The focus is set up for MacOS users, but you can also find a Windows setup guide.

Node and NPM

You will need to have node and npm installed, which are used to run the applications we’ll build and manage the libraries we’ll use along the way. You will install external node packages in this book via npm (node package manager). These node packages can be libraries or whole frameworks. You can verify which node and npm versions you have in the command line:

node –version


npm –version


These are the versions used for this publication. If you don’t see output in your terminal, you will need to install node and npm.


My other book, called The Road to learn React, teaches the fundamentals of React by building a real-world application. It is free, and after reading it, you should possess all the understanding necessary to work with the application(s) from this book. Also, there will be many sidenotes to React articles that may be helpful.
