I'm a noob, I've hit a wall and I need a bit of handholding re: creating node.js app

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/learnjavascript

  • SurveyJS - Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale

  • simple-fullstack-examples

    Minimal examples of Node.js fullstack applications, showing that, at least in principal "fullstack" isn't that difficult.

    Barring that, maybe take a look at this example here, it's not my code (and I just glanced at it briefly) but it seems to be a pretty basic example of how things generally work. Basically it contains a node app and the entry-point for that is src/index.js so take a look at that file and see how it's running a web service and connecting to a database, these are things that can (for our current purposes) only be done on the backend with the node app.
