Building a Card Game
Firebase is the go-to for many developers when they need a quick storage or authentication solution for a personal project. Often, React is also their choice of frontend framework. If you’ve used them before, you know that they can make for a powerful combination in getting your idea to production quickly. Joon Park recently built a version of Rummy 500 for two players to be able to play in real-time using that exact stack, but with the addition of TypeScript. We’ll go over a few reasons that make this trio such a great package, and some quick tips on building your own project.
