    Our backend will be little more than a two-way translation layer between the database and the user interface (UI). Later in this post we will identify other responsibilities of a backend but our implementation will be kept simple to demonstrate the fundamental machinery and concepts. It is worth noting the backend comes in two parts, web server and application server. Both json-server and Express are able to facilitate these roles from the same URL. This is very useful for our tutorial because we do not have to configure the server to manage Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS). It is quite typical for production systems to separate these server roles for all sorts of good reasons but for now it would just create an additional complication.
  • Improve Frontend-Backend development harmony with JSON-Server

    JSON-Server creates fake REST API with a minimum amount of configuration, it provides a simple way to create mock RESTful APIs and easily define the required endpoints, allows easy definition of the data schema in a JSON file and can serve as a reference for each figure in the project.
  • Dictionary app

    I thought about usingJson Server (hosting the repo with the words on Github to begin with), Googlesheets, or maybe Firestore (i would prefer not to use it ,to avoid extra costs just in case it gets a reasonable amount of users). It isnt a big app so i just want a simple solution for storing the words and fetching them.

    In this approach, you manually create mocks to build the API client. The most traditional version of this approach involves creating mock responses in the form of JSON examples, while recent frameworks allow you to run mock servers based on those JSON examples and some additional custom configuration. This is the most traditional approach to building API clients, but also the most common to this date, and sadly also the most error-prone. As we discussed earlier, JSON Examples tend to be incomplete and often wrong. They’re also a maintenance burden and become deprecated as soon as the API changes. The biggest limitation of this approach is that it doesn’t take advantage of a full API specification, and as the API design changes, there’s a potentially growing drift between JSON examples and the actual API.
