Deploying to Firebase Hosting

We're ready to deploy our Ember app! Using Firebase Hosting, we can deploy our application's static files (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc) to the web with a single command. To get started, we'll download firebase-tools via npm:

$ npm install -g firebase-tools

Read through our hosting quickstart to get your site up and running in minutes. Firebase Hosting is a production-grade service, with security, reliability, and scalability baked-in. We host your content on a global CDN and even provision an SSL certificate automatically for you.

For ember-cli apps, run the following commands:

$ ember build
$ firebase init

Then choose the name of the Firebase app you're deploying and enter dist when prompted for your public directory. This will generate a firebase.json file. Update the file to include the following rewrites configuration:

  "hosting": {
    "firebase": "my-ember-cli-app",
    "public": "dist",
    "rewrites": [{
      "source": "**",
      "destination": "/index.html"

Deploy your app by running the command:

$ firebase deploy

Note that you can use any hosting service you'd like to deploy your Ember app, you don't need to use Firebase Hosting.
