SHOUT INTO THE VOID - A SOCIAL MICROBLOG

Synopsis

This is a social microblog contructed with the MEAN stack - MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node. Like many social platforms, it exists to allow users to gaze into an abyss which also gazes back at them. Shout into the void and listen for echoes.

Motivation

This project is a vehicle for my experimentation with JSON Web Tokens, and perhaps a guide for anyone looking to get their feet wet with authentication.

API STRUCTURE

/posts GET - retrieve all posts in decending date order /posts POST - insert a new post into db

/posts/:postId GET - retrieve one post /posts/:postId POST - add comment to one post /posts/:postId PUT - edit one post /posts/:postId DELETE - delete one post

/newuser POST - register a new user /loginuser POST - authenticate existing user
