Time Tracking app with Flutter & Firebase

A time tracking application built with Flutter & Firebase:

This is intended as a reference app based on my Riverpod Architecture.

Note: this project used to be called "Started Architecture for Flutter & Firebase" (based on this old article). As of January 2023, it follows my updated Riverpod Architecture, using the latest packages.

Flutter web preview

A Flutter web preview of the app is available here:


  • Simple onboarding page
  • Full authentication flow (using email & password)
  • Jobs: users can view, create, edit, and delete their own private jobs (each job has a name and hourly rate)
  • Entries: for each job, user can view, create, edit, and delete the corresponding entries (an entry is a task with a start and end time, with an optional comment)
  • A report page that shows a daily breakdown of all jobs, hours worked and pay, along with the totals.

All the data is persisted with Firestore and is kept in sync across multiple devices.


  • Add missing tests
  • Stateful Nested Navigation (available since GoRouter 7.1)
  • Use controllers / notifiers consistently across the app (some code still needs to be updated)
  • Add localization
  • Use the new Firebase UI packages where useful
  • Responsive UI

This is a tentative roadmap. There is no ETA for any of the points above. This is a low priority project and I don't have much time to maintain it.

Relevant Articles

The app is based on my Flutter Riverpod architecture, which is explained in detail here:

Packages in use

These are the main packages used in the app:

See the pubspec.yaml file for the complete list.

Running the project with Firebase

To use this project with Firebase, follow these steps:

  • Create a new project with the Firebase console
  • Enable Firebase Authentication, along with the Email/Password Authentication Sign-in provider in the Firebase Console (Authentication > Sign-in method > Email/Password > Edit > Enable > Save)
  • Enable Cloud Firestore

Then, follow one of the two approaches below. 👇

1. Using the CLI

Make sure you have the Firebase CLI and FlutterFire CLI installed.

Then run this on the terminal from the root of this project:

  • Run firebase login so you have access to the Firebase project you have created
  • Run flutterfire configure and follow all the steps

For more info, follow this guide:

2. Manual way (not recommended)

If you don't want to use FlutterFire CLI, follow these steps instead:

  • Register separate iOS, Android, and web apps in the Firebase project settings.
  • On Android, use com.example.starter_architecture_flutter_firebase as the package name.
  • then, download and copy google-services.json into android/app.
  • On iOS, use com.example.starterArchitectureFlutterFirebase as the bundle ID.
  • then, download and copy GoogleService-Info.plist into iOS/Runner, and add it to the Runner target in Xcode.

That's it. Have fun!
