I am building a Flutter application and I have integrated Firebase, but I keep getting this error when I click on a button either to register, login or logout. I have seen other people have asked the same question, but none seems to work for me. I am using Flutter and Android Studio. How can I fix this problem?

This is an excerpt of my code

class HomeScreen extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _HomeScreenState createState() => _HomeScreenState();
}

class _HomeScreenState extends State<HomeScreen> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      backgroundColor: Colors.red,
      body: Center(
        child: Container(
          child: RaisedButton(
            onPressed: () {
              FirebaseAuth.instance.signOut().then((value) {
                Navigator.pushReplacement(
                    context,
                    MaterialPageRoute(
                        builder: (context) =>
                            LoginScreen()));
              });
            },
            child: Text("Logout"),
          )
        )
      )
    );
  }
}

Below is the thrown exception

All Firebase versions have been updated and now you have to call Firebase.initializeApp() before using any Firebase product, for example:

First, all Firebase products now depend on firebase_core version (0.5.0+), therefore you need to add it in the pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  firebase_core : ^0.5.0
  # cloud_firestore: ^0.14.0 other firebase dependencies

Then you have to call Firebase.initializeApp():

First Example

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

// Import the firebase_core plugin
import 'package:firebase_core/firebase_core.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(App());
}

class App extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return FutureBuilder(
      // Initialize FlutterFire
      future: Firebase.initializeApp(),
      builder: (context, snapshot) {
        // Check for errors
        if (snapshot.hasError) {
          return SomethingWentWrong();
        }

        // Once complete, show your application
        if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.done) {
          return MyAwesomeApp();
        }

        // Otherwise, show something whilst waiting for initialization to complete
        return Loading();
      },
    );
  }
}

Second Example with Firestore:

import 'package:cloud_firestore/cloud_firestore.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:firebase_core/firebase_core.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  // This widget is the root of your application.
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
      ),
      home: FirstRoute(title: 'First Route'),
    );
  }
}

class FirstRoute extends StatefulWidget {
  FirstRoute({Key key, this.title}) : super(key: key);
  final String title;

  @override
  _FirstRouteState createState() => _FirstRouteState();
}

class _FirstRouteState extends State<FirstRoute> {
  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: Text("test"),
        ),
        body: FutureBuilder(
          future: getData(),
          builder: (context, AsyncSnapshot<DocumentSnapshot> snapshot) {
            if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.done) {
              return Column(
                children: [
                  Container(
                    height: 27,
                    child: Text(
                      "Name: ${snapshot.data.data()['name']}",
                      overflow: TextOverflow.fade,
                      style: TextStyle(fontSize: 20),
                    ),
                  ),
                ],
              );
            } else if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.none) {
              return Text("No data");
            }
            return CircularProgressIndicator();
          },
        ));
  }

  Future<DocumentSnapshot> getData() async {
    await Firebase.initializeApp();
    return await FirebaseFirestore.instance
        .collection("users")
        .doc("docID")
        .get();
  }
}

Third Example:

Initialize it in initState() then call setState() which will call the build() method.

  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    Firebase.initializeApp().whenComplete(() { 
      print("completed");
      setState(() {});
    });
  }

Fourth Example:

Initialize it in the main() method after calling WidgetsFlutterBinding.ensureInitialized();

void main() async {
  WidgetsFlutterBinding.ensureInitialized();
  await Firebase.initializeApp();
  runApp(MyApp());
}

Note: You only have to call initializeApp() once

The FieldValue.serverTimestamp() is not a timestamp, but a so-called sentinel - a marker that gets sent to the server, that the server then recognizes and interprets to write the current timestamp. That means there is no way to convert FieldValue.serverTimestamp() to a timestamp on the client.

What you can do is write FieldValue.serverTimestamp() to a document on the server, and observe the value that is written to that document. This value will be a valid timestamp.

Just as qbix stated, you much use the API calls from whichever version you are going to use. If possible, you should use the newer API because it will definitely be supported much further into the future.

See the docs here:

https://firebase.google.com/docs/database/android/start/

Remove:

Firebase.setAndroidContext(this);
FirebaseApp.initializeApp(this);

And put:

FirebaseDatabase database = FirebaseDatabase.getInstance();

If qbix puts his comment into an answer, you should accept his rather than mine seeing has how he beat me by a few minutes.

Also:

If you are using the old firebase and need help switching, this guide is spot on and will help you with the switch. It's a fairly simple switch.

You can get the uid from AuthResult to create a document in Firestore. setData updates the document or in this case, creates one because it doesn't exist. Make sure to install cloud_firestore_package.

UserCredential result = await FirebaseAuth.instance.createUserWithEmailAndPassword(email: _email, password: _password);
User user = result.user
await FirebaseFirestore.instance.collection('users')
      .doc(user.uid).set({ 'firstName': _firstName})

I had the same problem, fixed it with:

@Override
protected void onStart() {
    super.onStart();
    mAdapter.startListening();
}

And then

@Override
protected void onStop() {
    super.onStop();
    mAdapter.stopListening();
}

Works like it did before the update :-)
