Link with Firestore
Now we need to link the app with Firestore so we can easily deploy our indexes and rules
firebase init firestore
This command will prompt a few questions
- Select to use an existing project
- Select the recently created project my-app
What file should be used for Firestore Rules?press enter
File firestore.rules already exists. Do you want to overwritepress N
What file should be used for Firestore indexes?press enter
File firestore.indexes.json already exists. Do you want to overwritepress N
Then CLI should generate 2 new files
firebase.json containing specific firebase configs.
Deploy rules and indexes
Now we can safely deploy Chatness rules and indexes. These are going to be important for the seed step.
firebase deploy --only firestore:indexes,firestore:rules
