This is the best possible time to become a developer!
Today you will take a step forward and create a Full Stack Todo List App that persists data in a Postgres database using ElephantSQL which offers a free Postgres plan where you can store up to 20Mb of data. Perfect solution for learning.
Let’s plan the Project:
The first step is to set up an account in ElephantSQL and create a new free database plan that this app will use.
This is mostly achieved by clicking around the Web Admin area in ElephantSQL and I will walk you through each step with annotated screenshots.
The last step is to create the UI for your app. The User Interface is often the most time expensive part of any Software Engineering projects, and the Todo App is no exception.
You will use the React boilerplate provided by CodeSandbox.io and learn how to use React’s Hooks to handle a global application state capable of consuming the REST API prepared during the previous step.
With that in place, you will use Ionic/React to assemly a nice looking mobile first UI.
