React JS With Node & Express Server
Learn how to create a React JS app that connects to a Node/Express server for a true full stack environment. – Free Course
What you’ll learn
- Students will learn how to connect a standard React JS codebase to a Node & Express server such that the data is seamlessly passed back and forth between the two. This is ideal for those who aim to become full stack developers and struggle connecting client-side concepts with server side frameworks and tools.
The MERN (Mongo, Express, React, Node) stack is taking over the software industry but too often, programming tutorials only focus on just the “R” or one of the other letters. To be a true full-stack developer, understanding how all the parts work together is crucial for success. In this tutorial, we combine Node, Express and React to create a full stack blog website. Our React app will consume a REST API from our Node/Express server which will store the data entirely within the context of the project – no 3rd party server, “dummy” data or fake APIs for the sake of beginner tutorials. This tutorial covers 100% of the stack.
Along the way, you will:
Write custom components
Use ES6 syntax
Deploy to a live staging environment
