I sincerely apologise but a grave error on my part led to a grave potential security issue, see #11.

This is fixed in version 0.2.0: update as soon as possible. It is available on CRAN.

Note: You may need to refresh the cache, visit your app and CTRL/CMD + SHIFT + R

Authentication Methods

Currently the following methods from Google Firebase are available in the package:


An application that provides authentication could look like this.


ui <- fluidPage(
  useFirebase(), # import dependencies,

server <- function(input, output){
  f <- FirebaseUI$
    new()$ # instantiate
    set_providers( # define providers
      email = TRUE, 
      google = TRUE
    launch() # launch

shinyApp(ui, server)


Install the stable version from CRAN:


Install the development from Github using remotes:

# install.packages("remotes")
