yeah, I know SQL as a language by itself and I've learned about HTTP. and what exactly is that? I have NPM installed on my computer, would I make an empty dir and run those commands to install express and MongoDB?
can you use MySQL? I don't think it makes much of a difference, but that's my db of choice
as far as the code above, um.. not so much. But you could fork my yelpcamp and play around with it. you'll need to npm install. Running it live wouldn't work without a database to hook into tho.
I linked the gist mostly because if you can read the code and kinda understand what is happening, then MEN will be super easy. But it should be easy regardless for you.
If you go the route of forking my yelpcamp, I might even suggest going back to earlier commits and see how it evolved over time (if that make sense, checkout early commits and work down the line).
yeah like I said I already have NPM installed, as well as React and a few other packages. I'm not sure when I'll try to learn back-end JS, but when I do I'll definitely come here for help if that's okay. like I said the code really seems easy. a bit more verbose than Rails, but the same concept. I just want to focus on Rails (building a fully functioning Facebook clone soon!) and then learn other technologies so I'm more well rounded
That's what we are here for \^^/
And on that note, I think I'm going to go lay down. I haven't been sleeping, so maybe I can get a headstart on it. If I usually lay there for 5 hours before sleeping, maybe going to be a few hours early will mean I'll still lay there for 5 hours and get a few hours of extra sleep :crying_cat_face: :zzz: :sleeping: :sleepy:
good night, good luck falling asleep. thanks for some insight into JS!
oh, just realized why you repeated you have npm installed. The npm installcommand doesn’t install npm. It uses npm to install the packages in the package.json file.
