My favourite prototyping development board is Arduino Uno and Nodemcu #ArduinoUyir Because with these 2 board we can do most projects. Single Analog pin is the only problem with Nodemcu. That can be resolved by any other basic Arduino family development board. Both these two boards I fall in love with hardware. Nodemcu's WiFi+Uno's digital/analog pins. Also using these two a begginer can learn almost everything in hardware.

RE: Nodemcu(esp8266) firebase connecting issue
@mhmdrameez I used that library before 6 Month ago and Worked fine. But now, it's not working. I think there are some issues with the library. Because there are somany open issues in GitHub Repo.
But while trying with Firebase ESP8299 Client library, which is listed on Arduino library manager it's worked fine for me. So, make a try using this library.
Library: Tools >> Manage Library > search for firebase esp8266
