🌱 How to start this project

This project comes with the necessary files to start working immediately.

We recommend opening this very same repository using a provisioning tool like Codespaces (recommended) or Gitpod. Alternatively, you can clone it on your local computer using the git clone command.

This is the repository you need to open:

https://github.com/breatheco-de/node-express-api-tutorial

πŸ‘‰ Please follow these steps on how to start a coding project.

πŸ’‘ Important: Remember to save and upload your code to GitHub by creating a new repository, updating the remote (git remote set-url origin <your new url>), and uploading the code to your new repository using the add, commit and push commands from the git terminal.

About the project we are going to build

In this tutorial we are going to be building a REST API that exposes 3 endpoints to the internet:

1GET /todos 2POST /todos 3DELETE /todos/<int:position>

GET /todos

Will return the list of all todos like this:

1[ 2 { 3 "done": true, 4 "label": "Sample Todo 1" 5 }, 6 { 7 "done": true, 8 "label": "Sample Todo 2" 9 } 10]

POST /todos

It's going to add a new todo to the list, it will receive the following request body:

1{ 2 "done": true, 3 "label": "Sample Todo 1" 4}

And return the updated list of todos.

DELETE /todos/int:position

It's going to remove one todo based on a given position at the end of the url, and return the updated list of todos.

This and many other projects are built by students as part of the 4Geeks Academy Coding Bootcamp by Alejandro Sanchez and many other contributors. Find out more about our Full Stack Developer Course, and Data Science Bootcamp.
