For developers who primarily (or just prefer to) work on the front-end, completing all of that back-end functionality for your application can be a bit of a chore. Especially in situations where you’re just working on a small side-project, or maybe even a small-scale group project, and you just need to add a bit of the usual stuff to round out your app. After all, who really wants to deal with writing out a bunch of Express routes, planning out and structuring a complicated SQL database, as well as a bunch of other stuff, just for your little portfolio app?
