How to Create a React app with Firebase Auth, Express Backend and MongoDB Database

Firebase is an extremely good software development platform, which gives you access to both authentication, noSQL databases, storage and much more. It’s a true powerhouse, and I love the ease of using Firebase and the database Firestore.

We all know the importance of using the right tool for the job. If you’re developing an app with Firebase, you might run into a situation where cloud functions are not enough, and you need a separate backend server to do some tasks. You might even use Firebase as your main hub, and have other microservices connected to it.

Either way, if you’re moving out of Firebase, you need authentication. It would be weird to have different authentication systems on Firebase and your separate backend server.

Luckily, Google lets us use Firebase authentication outside of Firebase. This works by sending the Firebase authentication token with the payload to the backend server, and validate it there. Let’s look at how we might tackle this.

This will be a step by step tutorial where we set up a simple example application. We will go through each step thoroughly and you don’t need any prior experience with Firebase, React or Express.

What we’re building

We’ll be building a simple phonebook. The user will be able to add phone numbers and see a list of all phone numbers. We will not use any css styling in this project. Let’s have a look on the technologies we’ll be using.

Firebase

We will only use Firebase for its authentication platform.

React

We will use modern hooks and arrow based React for our frontend.

https://reactjs.org/

Express

We will write our backend in NodeJS, and use Express as our backend framework

https://expressjs.com/

MongoDB (MongoDB Atlas)

We will use MongoDB Atlas as our database — a cloud based version of MongoDB, hosted by the MongoDB team themself. A regular SQL database would be the most natural choice in regards of this applications functionality. However, with help from the npm module Mongoose, MongoDB will act as a relational database, and provide us with schemas for our data. What’s great about going down this path, is that we can use Mongoose for structured data, and pure MongoDB for non-structured data. We will only use MongoDB through Mongoose in this application.

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

How React Native Is Shaping Mobile App Development

Are you a mobile app developer looking for more efficient tools for your projects? Mobile app development is getting tougher and tougher as the market continues to grow. As a developer, you need to develop Apps which meet the demands of your users. To achieve this, adopt the right tools, like the React Native development framework.

Based on Statista data, the global mobile app market will generate over $935 billion in 2023 from more than $365 billion in 2018. The majority of this amount will come from in-app advertising and paid downloads. To gain a share in the marketplace, companies need to embrace new technologies to provide what consumers are looking for, such as seamless navigation and aesthetic appeal—the React Native development framework makes it all possible.
