Cloud Functions

Find the repo

We'll be working on a branch of our firelist-react repo named challenge-functions.

Localhost installation

Pull the repo directly from GitHub...

git clone https://github.com/how-to-firebase/firelist-react.git
cd firelist-react
git checkout challenge-functions

Edit environment files

Update the following files with your own project details:

  • /.firebaserc

  • /public/environments/environment.dev.js

  • /public/environments/environment.js

  • /functions/environments/environment.dev.js

  • /functions/environments/environment.js

Run the tests

Once you're on the branch, make sure to run yarn or npm install to get your Node.js dependencies.

Then cd into your functions directory and run yarn or npm install again.

Make sure that you've installed nvm for Linux/macOS, nvm for Windows or some other tool to switch between Node.js versions.

Use nvm install 6.14.2 then nvm use 6.14.2 to switch to Node version 6.14.2.

The Node version is important to make sure that your tests run in an identical environment to that of the Cloud Functions runtime.

Then run yarn test or npm test to run your tests.

yarn
cd functions
nvm install 6.14.2
nvm use 6.14.2
node --version //should read out 6.14.2
yarn test
