    When building a web app from scratch, I recommend you build on top of a hackathon starter like https://github.com/sahat/hackathon-starter or maybe https://github.com/microsoft/TypeScript-Node-Starter if you want to use TypeScript, but for your purposes I believe you don't need TypeScript. The starter includes all the dependencies you need and you can pretty easily host it on something like Heroku or AWS.
  • Is my authentication implementation bad?

    For the cookies I used vercel’s own nextjs-with-passport example repo, just replaced the in-memory mock “db” to the mongoose implementation from sahat’s node js starter, so I think that these are safely handled.

    Web-site: – Github page: https://github.com/sahat/hackathon-starter Demo: https://hackathon-starter.walcony.com/ License: MIT Github stars: 30.3k Contribution guideline: No This is a boilerplate for Node.js web applications. The project is as generic and reusable as possible to cover most use cases of node.js web apps, without being too specific. You can even use this as a learning guide for your projects, if, let’s say, you’re only interested in Sign in with Google authentication and nothing else. It was built using a simple bootstrap theme and has dozens of API examples, including Instagram, Facebook etc.

    A) This is a great starter with auth, and a bunch of api examples. I started my project with this, and it’s been great, but I recently found out that there’s also a TS version by Microsoft of the same starter. I think that it’s opinionated enough for someone new to this ecosystem. (Ps: I think you’re better off switching the templating language from pug to ejs. It’s pretty php-like)

    One of these boilerplates is sahat/hackathon-starter with 30k+ stars on GitHub and a huge set of features to get you started with. But what I dislike about this boilerplate is the fact that it's too bloated for my needs. I mostly build APIs with Express and this boilerplate comes with a hefty view layer. I surely can cut that off but other parts of the boilerplate are also well suited for full-stack applications rather than REST APIs.
