Leave comments here or on the tutorial if you have questions or want to expand the tutorial.


Very cool, thanks! I should give google cloud shell and gcp a try.

I edit locally in VS Code, push to gitlab, then gitlab CI/CD upload to Firebase.

How mobile friendly is your setup? I am looking for the most efficient solution to update my site from my phone, and haven’t found a good way to do it yet.

if you put your phone in desktop mode you can open the cloud shell and edit files. I recommend a bluetooth keyboard to make life easier, but emergency changes can be done
