Recipe site in Gatsby and Firebase-2

Welcome to part-2 of the series. You can find part-1 here.

Let’s start from where we had left. We had configured firebase in the previous part and now we will start to connect it to our code.

We will be first installing a plugin to connect gatsby with firebase called gatsby-firesource. Details of the plugins are here.

So, head over to the terminal and stop gatsby develop , if running and run npm i gatsby-firesource to install it.

Rest of the chapter is exclusive content and will be in my upcoming book Gatsby Cookbook. You can find more details about it here.

Next, restart the gatsby development server by running gatsby develop from terminal. It should run successfully, if no errors.

Now to check if everything is working fine, we can run the graphql query in the playground at http://localhost:8000/___graphql, which we will soon use in our code.

The query is returning both of our recipes with all the details successfully.
