Load Firebase configuration
Instead of committing the Firebase config files to your repository, you can upload them to Codemagic as environment variables and reference them in a custom script. Note that the Firebase config file (
google-services.json for Android or
GoogleService-Info.plist for iOS) must be Base64-encoded.
- Save your Firebase config files as environment variables, e.g.
IOS_FIREBASE_SECRET. Make sure to check Secure.
Add the following pre-build script echoing your variables to load the Firebase configuration in Codemagic.
#!/usr/bin/env sh set -e # exit on first failed commandset echo $ANDROID_FIREBASE_SECRET | base64 --decode > $FCI_BUILD_DIR/android/app/google-services.json echo $IOS_FIREBASE_SECRET | base64 --decode > $FCI_BUILD_DIR/ios/Runner/GoogleService-Info.plist
post-clone script failed on base64 decode. The command could not be foundIf you received this error message when using the script above, it may be due to some invisible Unicode characters in the script after copy-pasting it. Try removing the space between the
base64command and the
--decodeoption and then adding it back.
For more details about using base64 and loading the Firebase configuration in Codemagic, see the step-by-step guide here.
