This project is an extention to my previous react js web app which allowed users to input data for the custom cards but now using mysql they are allowed to store the data of who they have made cards for, when they made it and as well as when the last login was.
Some cool features are:
- Store names of who card is made for
Date card was made
How It's Built
This was built on top of my react js website called custom cards. I used a bunch of youtube videos and knowlege from the traning/course from kurius to get me started. As any website would, I used html, css, mysql of course and react js.
An app that allows you to add todo and complete them!
Specific features with mySQL
Fetch all categories
Fetch all todos
Insert a new category
Insert a new todo
How It's Built
This project was built in two different parts: the frontend and the backend. The frontend was built with React.js. The backend was built using Express.js and MySQL! I built an API (not complete yet) to query data from the MySQL database!
What I learned
I learned how to use the mysql npm package to query data! I also learned about poolings with MySQL to avoid using too many connections. I also learned that having a specific version of mysql can affect whether a query is executed!
