Switch into the postgres user or simply fire up the postgresql client with the postgres role.

$ psql -U postgres

Create a role for the app

create role dude_expenses with createdb superuser login password '123456';

You need to create the new role as a superuser in order to be able to enable specific database extensions. If you have an existing user you have to alter the role with

alter role dude_expenses superuser;

Using the newly created role, create a database for development.

$ createdb -U dude_expenses -h localhost dude_expenses_development;

All app migrations live in db/migrate. You should execute them using the configuration you created above.

$ psql -h localhost -U dude_expenses -d dude_expenses_development
> create table...



In order to access /expenses resources you must provide a valid JWT token in the Authorization header.

You can obtain a valid token by authenticating first. Use the authentication endpoint and provide a valid email and password.

$ curl -i -X POST -d '{ "email": "", "password": "123456" }'
$ curl -i -H "Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjoiMTMifQ.Ss0Cr47S6-V99R0E1dy_Tax8yPICiYS0SPDX4HLMD-2"
