Firebase app not being configured

this randomly started happening and i cannot get passed it. my app crashes on launch with this in the debug area.

2016-10-29 14:31:57.606 gigMe[2285:73317] Firebase automatic screen reporting is enabled. Call +[FIRAnalytics setScreenName:setScreenClass:] to set the screen name or override the default screen class name. To disable automatic screen reporting, set the flag FirebaseAutomaticScreenReportingEnabled to NO in the Info.plist
2016-10-29 14:31:57.783 gigMe[2285] [Firebase/Core][I-COR000003] The default Firebase app has not yet been configured. Add [FIRApp configure] to your application initialization. Read more: gives google address that i cant post on here
2016-10-29 14:31:57.911 gigMe[2285:73317] * Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'FIRAppNotConfigured', reason: 'Failed to get default FIRDatabase instance. Must call FIRApp.configure() before using FIRDatabase.' * First throw call stack:

i really dont understand this at all because i havent messed with anything that has to do with the database and this is my didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method:

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
// Override point for customization after application launch.

return true

im not getting anything printed in the debugger either. anyone know what is going on?


This is not FIRApp.configure() error. You might be declaring a global variable with some class function in any of your class, like

class viewCon : UIViewController{

let ref = FIRDatabase.database().reference() // or a Storage reference
    // This might be the error

The reason why this happens is because , you are trying to initialise a variable with a class function/property which might not even be configure yet. So try this:-

 class viewCon : UIViewController{

    let ref : FIRDatabasereference! 
       // This might be the error or a Storage reference

     override func viewDidLoad(){

       ref =  FIRDatabase.database().reference()
