monPlan API

This is the API Server built on of Node.js used by monPlanR for server side logic.

API Version: v0.6.0-FinalRelease

This project is now depreciated as we are moving to a Java Environment for interaction with Google App Engine's Datastore

What is an API?

An API is a set of functions and procedures that allow the creation of applications which access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service.

Usage

To use this simply, install npm

npm install

This will install all the required dependencies

To run, simply type in

npm start

Having an invalid mongoDB setup will not launch the API. MongoDB should not be setup in default configuration, security auth should be enabled as well as it being in a non-standard port (i.e. not 27017)

For testing and development purposes, we recommend using POSTman (A Chrome Extension).

The default address (when accessing it locally) is https://localhost:3000, we use the 3000 port to prevent conflict with port 8080.
