  2. Install package depenencies: run npm i && cd functions && npm i && cd ..

  4. Setup the backend:
    1. Visit the firebase console and create a new project,
    2. Select Authentication and enable Email/Password and Anonymous signin methods
    3. Select Database and create a Firestore database
    4. Select Storage and click Get Started
