Day 78: 09 November 2020
For the moment I pause the freeCodeCamp path to focus exclusively on OpenClassRooms.
The project in question is a database of sauces that are entered by the user and voted by the community.
The frontend part of the project has already been written and this time I will take care of the backend.
Last time I had configured the Node.js, Express, MongoDB system and prepared the basic code structure to launch a server instance and to test it with Postman.
I had also prepared the scheme used to define the "Sauce" object.
For the moment all the fields are not required.
The next step is to implement the CRUD:
- Create (post)
- Read (get)
- Update (put)
- Delete (delete)
So I need to create functions that allow the manipulation of our database.
These functions are called routes and that's what I tried to code today.
I still cannot figure out how to craft the post request to create a sauce, and for this reason there are several attempts in my code. If we insert an object created "ad-hoc", and therefore without considering the form, then the sauce is correctly inserted in the database (the sauce on the left).
If we modify the sauce using the form, it is modified and the database is updated.
Now we can retrieve the list of all the sauces, and make a GET request for a specific sauce.
Also, it is possible to delete a specific sauce from our database.
I'm almost finished!!!
