Coding Firebase Authorization

I have crazy ideas about things I want to build but before I get them built I have another crazy idea.

The thing that is holding me up is back end development.  Especially setting up user authorization.

I think this problem might be over.  I think the idea of setting up a fully functional back end with user authorization in 15 is very possible with Firebase..

I have to overcome two challenges first.

First, I need to figure out how to set up Google Apps for Authorization purposes.

Second, I need to figure out how set up authorization in Firebase itself.

There are a couple of issues for me.  I find this kind of programming to be especially difficult.

In this case, the instructions that describe how to set up a Google App are slightly out of date (I think) and that’s something that bugs me… but that’s how everything is these days.

The way rules are set up seems to be very intuitive because all you have to do is set up a security JSON that is mapped exactly like the actual data structure.
