Daily Journal App

Daily journal app with nodejs and mongodb backend

To add a new post go to:


The home page of the app is:


This app has the backend with nodejs and mongodb included. This is an addition to the front end app that was built previously.

This was simpler compared to the todo app as there were no custom posts in this. In the todo app we built custom lists so we needed an additional lists data structure.

Here it was a simple posts collection where each post in the collection just had a title and a body.

It was nice to work with nodejs and mongodb without worrying about asynchronously loading data on the page. There were redirects like a traditional server side application. I liked that. It helped me to revise and learn the basics properly.

I got to revise the deployment of an app to Heroku. And got to revise who to include a cloud based db service in the app like Atlas.

I like using Atlas. It is a really quick and easy way of creating an application with a db.
