    There are many ways to develop, deploy and test Node.js lambda functions. In my reference template, I provide an example that uses an Express.js server.

  • Nodejs And Express CRUD
    2 projects | | 25 Nov 2021
    We have just created a simple CRUD application using Nodejs and express. This application is only a simple list of users. By now you can see it as a simple list; but it serves as part for more complex applications you can create later. This is only part of the great things you create using Nodejs Express and MongoDB. We hope you learned a lot in this tutorial. You can find more information about express in their website. There is also an Express MDN that contains great information. You can also find information about Mongoose and EJS on their websites. If you need to get the source code for this application, feel free to download it from its GitHub Repository.
