Completely lost on what tools/frameworks to use for a full-stack web+mobile application

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/learnprogramming

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    If you want to use MongoDB and NodeJS, you could try to build your backend like a REST API, NodeJS has a package called Express to manage HTTP requests, and another package called Mongoose to manage the connection with MongoDB, so the access to your database would be through HTTP GET / POST requests to the NodeJS backend, I can't help you with the security part, but there is npm packages to manage google login without storing the passwords in the database using tokens. Related to the front end you have a ton of different options, but React is also compatible with npm, the same packet manager that NodeJS uses

  • Mongoose

    MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • axios

    Promise based HTTP client for the browser and node.js

    Also, just to clarify, Express and Mongoose are packages for NodeJS, just like including a library, everything is inside the NodeJS project, you'll just include them with npm install express for example, and you can use them inside the project, the same with React, you can add packages to your project to add specific functions, like axios for managing your HTTP requests, etc.
