Install Git Large File Storage
Git Large File Storage (or Git LFS) allows large binary assets like media source files to be managed by Git.
Development Quick Start
For a freshly cloned repository, run:
git lfs install
Once all of the above prerequisites are installed, the following commands are now available:
||Build project in development mode. Development mode artifacts that are generated are suitable for easier debugging.|
||Build project in production mode. Production mode artifacts that are generated are suitable for deployment to Firebase Hosting (or any CDN).|
||Build project artifacts in production mode and deploy to Firebase Hosting.|
||Build project artifacts in development mode and run a development browser that will automatically refresh when source files are changed and saved.|
||Build project artifacts in production mode and launch a local Firebase Hosting environment to verify how the project will look when deployed to a public Firebase Hosting project.|
||Build project artifacts in production mode and launch a basic, local HTTP server without automatic reloading.|
This project is set up to deploy to a Firebase Hosting
environment. However, there is no reason that this project cannot be deployed to
another hosting service of your choosing. If you choose another hosting service,
firebase.json files in the root of the
repository as they are only needed by Firebase.
If you choose to use Firebase Hosting, then you must change the
.firebaserc to your Firebase project.
