Hello World!

In this article, let's see how we can deploy our web application using Firebase.

To start with, first check whether npm is installed in your computer. To check, just type the below command in your terminal Window.

npm --version

If you don't have firebase tools in your computer, install it through the following command

npm install –g firebase-tools

Next, we have to create an application in Firebase.

If you have an account in firebase, just login to the console. Else create one here

Next, create a new project in Firebase. Name it and select country.
