ChatGPT Android Firebase Authentication: Simplify Your App Development

If you have an Android app idea, chances are that you want to add a sign-in screen to authenticate users in your app. This goes great with the profile screen that we created in the last post here.

If you were living in last years world then you would have to begin your long and tedious search to figure out how to get started implementing the sign-in screen. Luck for you, you’re living in modern times. In what seems, in many ways, like the future!

In this post we’ll reveal that magic prompt that we used to get all of the code and step-by-step instructions to create a fully functional sign-in screen where you can create an new account, sign in, and authenticate users in your app.

The Magic Prompt: Your ChatGPT Shortcut to Android Sign-In

Please give me the code and step by step instructions for creating a new authentication fragment in Android Studio using viewbinding. I want the fragment to use Firebase authentication. I want the fragment to be sleek, modern, and use material design. When the app is launched, in the MainActivity, I want the app to check if the user is signed in, if not, display the authentication fragment, otherwise show the ProfileFragment. We also need to have a sign-up option for when the user doesn’t already have an account. If your output is cut off, I will prompt with continue.

Then ChatGPT worked it’s magic and provided us with the following instructions and code. Once implemented you’ll have a fully function sign-in screen in your app with a sign-up option as well. This is advanced level stuff, but with ChatGPT’s help we get it done quick and easily.

ChatGPT’s Step-by-Step Guide: Implementing Android Authentication

To create an authentication fragment in Android Studio using ViewBinding and Firebase Authentication, follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Add Firebase to your project:

– First, follow the official Firebase documentation to add Firebase to your Android project: https://firebase.google.com/docs/android/setup

2. Add dependencies to the build.gradle (Module) file:

– Add the required dependencies to your app-level build.gradle file:

    implementation 'com.google.android.material:material:1.4.0'
    implementation 'androidx.fragment:fragment-ktx:1.3.6'
    implementation 'androidx.navigation:navigation-fragment-ktx:2.3.5'
    implementation 'androidx.navigation:navigation-ui-ktx:2.3.5'
    implementation platform('com.google.firebase:firebase-bom:28.4.1')
    implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-auth'

– Sync the Gradle files after adding the dependencies.

3. Enable Email/Password sign-in method in Firebase:

– Go to the Firebase Console (https://console.firebase.google.com/), select your project, click on “Authentication” from the left menu, and then click on the “Sign-in method” tab. Enable the Email/Password provider.

4. Create an AuthenticationFragment:

– Create a new Kotlin file called `AuthenticationFragment.kt` and add the following code:

import androidx.fragment.app.Fragment
import android.os.Bundle
import android.view.LayoutInflater
import android.view.View
import android.view.ViewGroup
import android.widget.Toast
import com.example.profilefragmentexample.databinding.FragmentAuthenticationBinding
import com.google.firebase.auth.FirebaseAuth
class AuthenticationFragment : Fragment() {
    private var _binding: FragmentAuthenticationBinding? = null
    private val binding get() = _binding!!
    private lateinit var auth: FirebaseAuth
    override fun onCreateView(
        inflater: LayoutInflater, container: ViewGroup?,
        savedInstanceState: Bundle?
    ): View {
        _binding = FragmentAuthenticationBinding.inflate(inflater, container, false)
        auth = FirebaseAuth.getInstance()
        return binding.root
    }
    override fun onViewCreated(view: View, savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onViewCreated(view, savedInstanceState)
        binding.signInButton.setOnClickListener {
            val email = binding.emailEditText.text.toString()
            val password = binding.passwordEditText.text.toString()
            signIn(email, password)
        }
        binding.signUpButton.setOnClickListener {
            val email = binding.emailEditText.text.toString()
            val password = binding.passwordEditText.text.toString()
            signUp(email, password)
        }
    }
    private fun signIn(email: String, password: String) {
        auth.signInWithEmailAndPassword(email, password)
            .addOnCompleteListener(requireActivity()) { task ->
                if (task.isSuccessful) {
                    navigateToProfileFragment()
                } else {
                    Toast.makeText(context, "Authentication failed: ${task.exception?.message}", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                }
            }
    }
    private fun signUp(email: String, password: String) {
        if (email.isNotBlank() && password.isNotBlank()) {
            auth.createUserWithEmailAndPassword(email, password)
                .addOnCompleteListener(requireActivity()) { task ->
                    if (task.isSuccessful) {
                        navigateToProfileFragment()
                    } else {
                        Toast.makeText(context, "Sign up failed: ${task.exception?.message}", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
                    }
                }
        }
    }
    private fun navigateToProfileFragment() {
        requireActivity().supportFragmentManager.beginTransaction()
            .replace(R.id.fragment_container, ProfileFragment())
            .commit()
    }
    override fun onDestroyView() {
        super.onDestroyView()
        _binding = null
    }
}

5. Create the layout for the AuthenticationFragment:

– Create a new layout file called `fragment_authentication.xml` and add the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:padding="16dp">
    <com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout
        android:id="@+id/emailTextInputLayout"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toTopOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent">
        <com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputEditText
            android:id="@+id/emailEditText"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:hint="Email"
            android:inputType="textEmailAddress" />
    </com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout>
    <com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout
        android:id="@+id/passwordTextInputLayout"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/emailTextInputLayout"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent">
        <com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputEditText
            android:id="@+id/passwordEditText"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:hint="Password"
            android:inputType="textPassword" />
    </com.google.android.material.textfield.TextInputLayout>
    <com.google.android.material.button.MaterialButton
        android:id="@+id/signInButton"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Sign In"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/passwordTextInputLayout"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent" />
    <com.google.android.material.button.MaterialButton
        android:id="@+id/signUpButton"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Sign Up"
        app:layout_constraintTop_toBottomOf="@id/signInButton"
        app:layout_constraintStart_toStartOf="parent"
        app:layout_constraintEnd_toEndOf="parent" />
</androidx.constraintlayout.widget.ConstraintLayout>

6. Modify MainActivity:

  • Update your MainActivity.kt to check if the user is signed in and display the appropriate fragment:
import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity
import android.os.Bundle
import com.example.profilefragmentexample.databinding.ActivityMainBinding
import com.google.firebase.auth.FirebaseAuth
class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {
    private lateinit var binding: ActivityMainBinding
    private lateinit var auth: FirebaseAuth
    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState)
        binding = ActivityMainBinding.inflate(layoutInflater)
        setContentView(binding.root)
        auth = FirebaseAuth.getInstance()
        if (auth.currentUser == null) {
            // User is not signed in, display the AuthenticationFragment
            supportFragmentManager.beginTransaction()
                .replace(R.id.fragment_container, AuthenticationFragment())
                .commit()
        } else {
            // User is signed in, display the ProfileFragment
            supportFragmentManager.beginTransaction()
                .replace(R.id.fragment_container, ProfileFragment())
                .commit()
        }
    }
}

Now you have a sleek, modern authentication fragment using Firebase Authentication and Material Design. The MainActivity will check if the user is signed in and display the appropriate fragment.
