Planet Earth Escapes

This is a full web app with username and password authentication and all the files you need (models, routes, views, stylesheets) to start a great app using Node, Express, MongoDB, Passport and related technologies. All you need to do is some settings.

Un-registered users can only view all the places and comments but logged in users can do the same plus add comments and add new places or escapes.

A Midleware function called isLogggedIn verify if the user is logged in before he/she can add new comment or scapes.
