To install the My Course Platform, follow the steps below:

  1. Clone the repository: git clone
  2. Change directory to the cloned repository: cd nextjs-firebase-authentication
  3. Install all dependencies using Yarn: yarn install
  4. Run the development server: yarn run dev
  5. Visit http://localhost:3000/ in your browser.
  6. Create a .env file in the root folder of your project. If using git, add it to your .gitignore file.
  7. Set the following values in the .env file (values may differ for development and production):
    • FIREBASE: Activate Email/Password Sign-In Method for your Firebase Project
    • PAYPAL: Checkout
    • STRIPE: Checkout
    • Webhook.firebaseServiceAccountKey.json: Visit the Firebase Admin SDK and generate a firebaseServiceAccountKey.json file, which should be placed in your project's root folder. If using git, add it to your .gitignore file.
  8. If you want to have an account with Firebase admin claims, create this Firebase account first via UI, then set the user account's uid in .env with FIREBASE_ADMIN_UID, and restart your server.
  9. If using Stripe, you can use the Stripe CLI for Webhook in Development Mode. The secret can be used in .env.
  10. To test Stripe integration, you can fake a request with Stripe CLI: stripe payment_intents create --amount=100 --currency=usd. Make sure the application is running. Alternatively, you can use the web application's Stripe Checkout feature for real payments.
