In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through creating both a frontend web app in React and a backend REST API server in Node. The frontend will have a home page and a posts manager, with the posts manager hidden behind secure user authentication. As an added security measure, the backend will also not let you create or edit posts unless you’re properly authenticated.,The backend will be written with Express as a server, with Sequelize for modeling and storing data, and Finale for quickly creating a REST API without a lot of boilerplate.,Now that users can securely authenticate, you can build the REST API server to perform CRUD operations on a post model. You’ll need to add quite a few dependencies to your project at this point:

const Form = () => (
  <form>
    <label>
      Name
      <input value="Arthur Dent" />
    </label>
    <label>
      Answer to life, the universe, and everything
      <input type="number" value={42} />
    </label>
  </form>
);

const App = () => (
  <main>
    <h1>Welcome, Hitchhiker!</h1>
    <Form />
  </main>
);

Separating the backend and frontend has become the norm in developing full-stack applications. But there aren’t many options out there to host a full-stack app on a single provider.,There’s just a handful of options if you want to quickly try out your idea without paying a dime. Vercel and Qovery are two that come to mind for handling both the backend and frontend.,As a frontend developer, you want to write the frontend parts, but if need be, you could probably dabble a bit in the backend if you feel it is familiar territory.

Node.js actually provides a runtime environment to execute JavaScript code from outside a browser. NPM, the default package manager for Nodejs is used for managing and sharing the packages for any JavaScript projects.,Express is a popular unopinionated web framework, written in JavaScript and hosted within the Node.js runtime environment. It is also a modern backend technology and popular among new developers.,Node.js and NPM are used by Express for the management of dependencies and runtime.

To achieve all these aspects in the project, I have iterated a lot over the years and now, I feel that I have found an optimum solution. My team here at AfterAcademy has open-sourced the backend project architecture for everyone to get benefit from our experiences. ,Before we start to explore these topics, let me emphasize one very important aspect of backend development. When we start with a frontend project like React or Express(templates) then we are tempted to create a unified backend and frontend codebase. From my experience, I have found the unified codebase becomes very difficult to manage when the products of a company start to diverse. Many different websites get developed to cater to these varied use-cases and then the backend is required to address all of them. ,So, what I recommend is to keep the backend application independent from any frontend. The frontend like websites and the mobile app can call the APIs of the common backend for the services. This open-source project repository does the same.

For our latest application – FitChain – we wanted to build a Single Page Application (SPA) with React and implement the backend REST API using Express. We wanted the backend and frontend separate when doing development, but when we deploy the application to Bluemix, we didn’t want to have multiple applications.,We told ourselves that we’re maintaining clear boundaries and isolation between each layer of the application stack, but let’s be honest with ourselves…It didn’t take long for code to become tightly coupled and turn into spaghetti code.,While it is common practice now to separate your UI application from all other application logic which require a server side code, in this blog I’ll show how you can EASILY set up an environment where the UI and backend applications run as separate applications in your development environment but runs as a single application when deployed to cloud environment like CloudFoundry on Bluemix.
