  • Create Flybase Account

  • First, create a Flybase account.

  • Create your First app

    1. If you do not have a Flybase account, create one first.
    2. Create a new app.
    3. Copy your API Key

    You have successfully set up a real-time database, as well as generated credentials for your serverless function to connect to Flybase.

  • Add Environment Variables

  • To securely access the API, we need to include the secret with each request. We also do not want to commit secrets to git. Thus, we should use an environment variable. Learn how to add environment variables in Vercel.
