File Metadata Microservice 📁

This service accepts a file upload with a size limit of 1000KB. Once uploaded, it will return the file size in bytes in the JSON response. Note: This service is removing the file from the server right after sending the json response because the upload files are not being managed for this project.

You can test it at https://file-metadata-micro-srvc.herokuapp.com
