Technologies Used in the project

The mobile application is completely built on the the flutter framework and firebase platform

  1. Flutter

  2. Firebase

    . Cloud Messaging

    . Firebase Storage

    . Firebase Firestore

    . Authentication

Project Set up

1. Initialize firebase

To initialize firebase we are going to use FlutterFire for this work as it will do all the dirty work for us

You can check more about flutterfire from its docs

Note Yoo need to have a Firebase account, incase you dont have you can create one here

After you have fully installed flutterfire you can now enable flutterfire for your project now

2. Enable FlutterFire for your Flutter Project

To get started, you need to run the following command in the terminal of your ide of your project’s directory

// paste in your terminal
dart pub global activate flutterfire_cli

3. Login to Firebase from your account

Note To get started, you need to install this you need to have npm(node package manager installed) for you to install the firebase tools

// paste this
firebase login

4. Configure Flutterfire to your project

The FlutterFire CLI extracts information from your Firebase project and selected project applications to generate all the configuration for a specific platform.

In the root of your application, run the configure command:

// paste this
flutterfire configure

After you install, all the configurations in your build.gradle file are added and the google-service.json are added in the android folder and Firebase will be integrated in your system this will save you all the trouble of having to install all the configurations one by one and this may cause some of the things to be oeverlooked.

Event Event

Serverless Framework AWS NodeJS Example

This template demonstrates how to deploy a NodeJS function running on AWS Lambda using the traditional Serverless Framework. The deployed function does not include any event definitions as well as any kind of persistence (database). For more advanced configurations check out the examples repo which includes integrations with SQS, DynamoDB or examples of functions that are triggered in cron-like manner. For details about configuration of specific events, please refer to our documentation.



In order to deploy the example, you need to run the following command:

$ serverless deploy

After running deploy, you should see output similar to:

Deploying aws-node-project to stage dev (us-east-1)

✔ Service deployed to stack aws-node-project-dev (112s)

  hello: aws-node-project-dev-hello (1.5 kB)


After successful deployment, you can invoke the deployed function by using the following command:

serverless invoke --function hello

Which should result in response similar to the following:

    "statusCode": 200,
    "body": "{\n  \"message\": \"Go Serverless v3.0! Your function executed successfully!\",\n  \"input\": {}\n}"

Local development

You can invoke your function locally by using the following command:

serverless invoke local --function hello

Which should result in response similar to the following:

    "statusCode": 200,
    "body": "{\n  \"message\": \"Go Serverless v3.0! Your function executed successfully!\",\n  \"input\": \"\"\n}"
