Website DB App


  • Static personal website difficult to scale and maintain

What I did - Create a local app to update db

  • Solution: Chose to build a local app to manage a mongoDB. Local for security, db for scalability, app for maintainability
  • REST API: Implemented CRUD (create, read, update, destroy) functionality with a REST architecture
  • Increments: Broke down into 4 (CRUD) deliverables
  • Monaco editor: Chose it before Trix, Quill, or Summernote to implement input controls because I’m familiar with vscode syntax and I wanted to learn it
  • Staging db: Local db helps test db updates before pushing they are live
