Copy the Firebase configuration object from the Configuration menu of the web app you registered in Step 2 of the Firebase configuration.


Create a file named .firebase.env.js in the root of the Nodi folder, and Copy the contents of the Firebase configuration object as shown in the capture below.


6. Configure CORS#

For other configuration items#

You can now load your own Firebase project into Nodi and get the editor UI, modeling, etc. working, but it's not complete yet.

There are some other things that need to be configured, such as Firestore Database index and rules, which are necessary for searching files on the site. The necessary configuration files are included in the repository, so if you want to make it work completely, please refer to the Firebase documentation to configure various settings.
