What’s up guys, Eze is here. Those who follow me on Twitter (if you are not a follower you better do it now @skielo) already know I’ve been working on an app to show you how to use Firebase from an Angular 2 app. I have several posts talking about Firebase and how to use almost all its functionalities from an AngularJS app, in case you missed it you can check it here. Today, I want to show you how easy is to get an Angular 2 app up and running and connected to Firebase. This will be the first out of a series of posts where we are going to find out more about those tools.
The Skeleton of Our App
I want to show you first how to create a new Angular 2 app from the scratch. To do that we will need to install the angular cli tool onto our machines. The installation of this tool is really simple – we just need run the following command npm install -g @angular/cli. Please be sure you have a node version higher than 4 because it’s a requirement for this tool to run.
