    Firebase is a realtime database where we can store the information and can check whether data got saved or not in Firebase. Here is a simple example of creating a project and connection of the project with Firebase, so, here we go.

     

     

    First of all,  go to the firebase (https://firebase.google.com/) and create a project and after creating the project with any name you will get a project id. Now click on tab ‘Add firebase to your iOS app screen’
    copy bundle identifier from Xcode project and then register your application. After registration, you will see a link to download googleservice-info.plist which later on you have to add in your project so download the plist. Now go back to the firebase and press continue button and then finish after one step here complete the application registration part. Now follow the given below steps:-


    1. Go to the authentication from side menu
    2.  setup sign-in method by enabling email/password


    Now open the terminal to install pods of Firebase in your application. Follow the given below steps:-
    1. cd project path
    2. pod init
    3. Write these lines in pod file after opening the file with Xcode
      pod 'Firebase'
      pod 'Firebase/Auth'
      pod 'Firebase/Core'
      pod 'Firebase/Database'
    4.pod install

     

     

     

     

     

     

    User interface for the application can easily be created by using two controllers and one navigation controller as given below in the screenshots:-

     

     

     

    Now we will move towards the coding part where first of all, import Firebase in AppDelegate file and configuration of Firebase application will be start from here only.

        }

            // Sent when the application is about to move from active to inactive state. This can occur for certain types of temporary interruptions (such as an incoming phone call or SMS message) or when the user quits the application and it begins the transition to the background state.
            // Use this method to pause ongoing tasks, disable timers, and invalidate graphics rendering callbacks. Games should use this method to pause the game.
        }
    
        func applicationDidEnterBackground(_ application: UIApplication) {
            // Use this method to release shared resources, save user data, invalidate timers, and store enough application state information to restore your application to its current state in case it is terminated later.
            // If your application supports background execution, this method is called instead of applicationWillTerminate: when the user quits.
        }
    
        func applicationWillEnterForeground(_ application: UIApplication) {
            // Called as part of the transition from the background to the active state; here you can undo many of the changes made on entering the background.
        }
    
        func applicationDidBecomeActive(_ application: UIApplication) {
            // Restart any tasks that were paused (or not yet started) while the application was inactive. If the application was previously in the background, optionally refresh the user interface.
        }
    
        func applicationWillTerminate(_ application: UIApplication) {
            // Called when the application is about to terminate. Save data if appropriate. See also applicationDidEnterBackground:.
        }
    
    
    }
