dependencies {
  // Example existing classpath
  classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.3'
  // Add the google services classpath
  classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.1.0'
}

java.lang.IllegalStateException:
Default FirebaseApp is not initialized in this process [package name].
Make sure to call FirebaseApp.initializeApp(Context) first.

Note: When you are debugging on android, use a device or AVD with Google Play services. Otherwise you will not be able to authenticate.

Use the plugin

Add the following imports to your Dart code:

import 'package:firebase_auth/firebase_auth.dart';

Initialize FirebaseAuth:

final FirebaseAuth _auth = FirebaseAuth.instance;

You can now use the Firebase _auth to authenticate in your Dart code, e.g.

Future<Null> _handleSignIn() async {
  try {
    GoogleSignInAccount googleUser = await _googleSignIn.signIn();
    GoogleSignInAuthentication googleAuth = await googleUser.authentication;
    FirebaseUser user = await _auth.signInWithGoogle(
      accessToken: googleAuth.accessToken,
      idToken: googleAuth.idToken,
    );
    print("signed in" + user.displayName);
  } catch (error) {
    print(error);
  }
}

Example

See the example application source for a complete sample app using the Firebase authentication.
