A month of Flutter: configure Firebase Auth for Sign in with Google on iOS
Yesterday I configured Sign in with Google on Android. Today is more of the same but in iOS land.
app directory I ran
open ios/Runner.xcworkspace to open the iOS project in Xcode. Then in Xcode I selected "Runner" under "Project navigator" in the left sidebar followed by "Runner" under "Targets" in the main content area. Here I set "Bundle identifier" to
Using the development Firebase project from yesterday, I added a new iOS app using the same bundle ID.

Starting the app should give Firebase the all set signal.
And the Sign in with Google button still doesn't do anything but maybe tomorrow it really will.
