Firebase Deployment

This page documents deployments using the next major version dpl v2, which currently is in a beta release phase. Please see our blog post for details. The current default version is dpl v1. Check dpl v1 documentation here.

Be sure to read the v2 deployment overview.

Travis CI can automatically deploy to Firebase after a successful build.

For a minimal configuration, add the following to your .travis.yml:

  provider: firebase
  token: <encrypted token>
  edge: true # opt in to dpl v2

Status #

Support for deployments to Firebase is *stable**.

Known options #

Use the following options to further configure the deployment.

token Firebase CI access token (generate with firebase login:ci) — required, secret, type: string
project Firebase project to deploy to (defaults to the one specified in your firebase.json) — type: string
message Message describing this deployment. — type: string
only Firebase services to deploy — type: string, note: can be a comma-separated list
force Whether or not to delete Cloud Functions missing from the current working directory — type: boolean

Shared options #

cleanup Clean up build artifacts from the Git working directory before the deployment — type: boolean
run Commands to execute after the deployment finished successfully — type: string or array of strings

Environment variables #

All options can be given as environment variables if prefixed with FIREBASE_.

For example, token can be given as FIREBASE_TOKEN=<token>.

Securing secrets #

Secret option values should be given as either encrypted strings in your build configuration (.travis.yml file) or environment variables in your repository settings.

Environment variables can be set on the settings page of your repository, or using travis env set:

travis env set FIREBASE_TOKEN <token>

In order to encrypt option values when adding them to your .travis.yml file use travis encrypt:

travis encrypt <token>

Or use --add to directly add it to your .travis.yml file. Note that this command has to be run in your repository’s root directory:

travis encrypt --add deploy.token <token>

Generating a Firebase token #

Generate your Firebase token after installing the Firebase tools by running:

Run this command to generate a token (e.g. 1/AD7sdasdasdKJA824OvEFc1c89Xz2ilBlaBlaBla)

firebase login:ci

Deploying to a custom project #

To deploy to a different project than the one specified in the firebase.json, use the project option:

  provider: firebase
  # ⋮
  project: <project>

Adding a message to a deployment #

To add a message to describe the deployment, use the message option:

  provider: firebase
  # ⋮
  message: <message>

Pull Requests #

Note that pull request builds skip the deployment step altogether.
