iOS Databases - Module 2 / Invalid Google Plist?

iOS Database - Module 2 - 2nd video

Here Chris ran the app and connected to the firebase database for the first time. Ive tried this twice and each time it has failed, at the same spot.

I’ve googled and tried their solutions. Where should I start troubleshooting?

Can you paste the entire output log at the bottom right?

Did you drag the google info.plist into the project?

Yes I dragged the Google infoplist into the workspace. However I dowloaded multiple instances of google plist and eventually it was infoplist-1 and infoplist-2 and so on, But i read the advice that I should rename it to GoogleService-Info.plist so I did and still nothing

When copying it into the project make sure “copy items if needed” is checked, and that it’s going into the proper project

The “i” in plist was lower cased and should have been upper cased :see_no_evil:

That’ll do it :joy:
It happens
