# Firebase CLI Guide
Firebase CLI (Command Line Interface) is a powerful tool that allows developers to interact with Firebase services and manage their Firebase projects directly from the command line. It provides a convenient and efficient way to deploy projects, manage databases, configure authentication, and more, streamlining the development and deployment processes.
## Installation
To use the Firebase CLI, you need to have Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) installed on your system. Follow the steps below to install the Firebase CLI:
1. Install Node.js and npm by downloading the installer from the [official Node.js website]( and following the installation instructions for your operating system.
2. Once Node.js and npm are installed, open your terminal or command prompt and run the following command to install the Firebase CLI globally:
npm install -g firebase-tools
This command will download and install the Firebase CLI package from the npm registry.
3. After the installation is complete, you can verify that the Firebase CLI is installed correctly by running the following command:
firebase --version
If the installation was successful, you will see the version number of the Firebase CLI printed in the terminal.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the Firebase CLI.
## Usage
The Firebase CLI allows you to interact with Firebase services and manage your Firebase projects from the command line. Here are some common tasks you can perform using the Firebase CLI:
- Initialize a new Firebase project in your current directory.
- Deploy your Firebase project to Firebase hosting.
- Manage Firebase Authentication, Realtime Database, Cloud Firestore, Cloud Functions, and other Firebase services.
- Configure Firebase project settings.
- Interact with Firebase emulators for local development and testing.
To use the Firebase CLI, open your terminal or command prompt and run the `firebase` command followed by the desired command and options.
Here's an example of the basic usage:
firebase <command> [options]
Replace `<command>` with the specific Firebase command you want to execute, and `[options]` with any additional options or flags required for that command.
For more detailed usage information, you can run the following command:
firebase help
This command will display the available Firebase commands and provide detailed information about each command.
