capacitor-firebase-auth

Capacitor plugin for Firebase Authentication that handle the authentication on Native layer and propagate the token to the web view layer. After the sing in process complete the user will be signed in in both tiers.

Actually the plugins support Google, Twitter and Facebook providers in Android and iOS.

The Phone Number and Email/Password providers are in the Road Map.

This is a working in progress plugins, as soon as we have notices that some one is using this in production without problems we will remove this disclaimer.

What news

  • Configuration for when authenticate on native layer (default false to avoid double billing)
  • Fix the issue #1: Default FirebaseApp is not initialized on Android platform
  • WIP: Phone verification sign in on iOS platform.

Old news

  • Phone verification sign in on Android platform.
  • How to install and config on Google, Twitter and Facebook.
  • Fix to work without Facebook configurations.
  • Better sign out implementation.
  • Better observable implementations on js facade.
  • Facebook Provider authentication in iOS platform
  • Facebook Provider authentication in Android platform
  • Twitter Provider authentication in iOS platform
  • Twitter Provider authentication in Android platform
  • The Typescript facade for the plugin
  • Google Provider authentication in iOS Platform

  • Scaffolding do plugin (npx @capacitor/cli plugin:generate)

Next steps

  1. Phone Number Provider in iOS platform
  2. Email/Password Provider

How to Install

Install the plugin into your Capacitor project with npm.

npm install --save capacitor-firebase-auth

How to Config

Capacitor Plugins

  1. In file capacitor.config.json config the native authentication as desired

    [...]
      "plugins": {
        "CapacitorFirebaseAuth": {
          "nativeAuth": false
        }
      }
    [...]
    
  2. In file android/app/src/main/java/br/com/petrobras/br/ma02/MainActivity.java add the reference to the Capacitor Firebase Auth plugin inside the Bridge initialization.

    [...]
    // Initializes the Bridge
    this.init(savedInstanceState, new ArrayList<Class<? extends Plugin>>() {{
      // Additional plugins you've installed go here
      // Ex: add(TotallyAwesomePlugin.class);
      add(CapacitorFirebaseAuth.class);
    }});
    [...]
    
  3. In file android/app/build.gradle add the following lines :

    android {
        compileOptions {
            sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
            targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        }
    }
    

    Sorry, but even if you are not using Twitter authentication, this will be needed, see Twitter section for detail.

Firebase

  1. Follow instructions to add Firebase to your native project:
  2. If you haven't yet connected your app to your Firebase project, do so from the Firebase console.

Please, don't forgot your Google Service .json or .plist file or your app will crash on the startup.

Firebase iOS specific configurations

  1. Add the pods that you want to install. You can include a Pod in your Podfile like this:

    target 'App' do
      capacitor_pods
      # Add your Pods here
        pod 'Firebase/Core'
        pod 'Firebase/Auth'
    end
    

Google

Google global configurations

  1. Enable Google Sign-In in the Firebase console:
    • In the Firebase console, open the Auth section.
    • On the Sign in method tab, enable the Google sign-in method and click Save.

  1. If you haven't yet specified your app's SHA-1 fingerprint, do so from the Settings page of the Firebase console. See Authenticating Your Client for details on how to get your app's SHA-1 fingerprint.

Google iOS specific configurations

  1. Add custom URL schemes to your Xcode project:
    • Open your project configuration: double-click the project name in the left tree view. Select your app from the TARGETS section, then select the Info tab, and expand the URL Types section.
    • Click the + button, and add a URL scheme for your reversed client ID. To find this value, open the GoogleService-Info.plist configuration file, and look for the REVERSED_CLIENT_ID key. Copy the value of that key, and paste it into the URL Schemes box on the configuration page. Leave the other fields blank.

Twitter

Twitter global configurations

      func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplication.OpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
        // Called when the app was launched with a url. Feel free to add additional processing here,
        // but if you want the App API to support tracking app url opens, make sure to keep this call
        
        if let scheme = url.scheme {
            if scheme.starts(with: "twitterkit") {
                return TWTRTwitter.sharedInstance().application(app, open: url, options: options)

Usage

Sign in

import {cfaSignIn} from 'capacitor-firebase-auth';
 
cfaSignIn('google.com').subscribe(
    user => console.log(user.displayName);
)

Sing out

import {cfaSignOut} from 'capacitor-firebase-auth';
 
//[...]
 
cfaSignOut().subscribe()

Known limitations

Phone Verification

The user will be signed in only in web layer. This limitation is due to the verification code only works once. So, there is no way to authenticate the user in both layers (native and web) with just one SMS Code.
