RESTful CRUD API with Deno, Oak and MongoDB

In this post, we are going to build a RESTful CRUD API with Deno, Oak and MongoDB as database. In the previous article, we discussed how to install deno in your local machine and start using Deno. If you haven’t read that article, please read the article below and install the deno first. Getting started with Deno, Your first app Hello Deno. Let's install Deno. Deno ships as a single executable with no dependencies. You can install it using the installers… After installing the Deno, we will start building the restful crud api’s. We will use o ak  microframework. Some of the other deno microframeworks are: abc deno-drash deno-express oak pogo servest In this article we will be using oak, which is inspired by koa. Setting up the project: Create a new directory called  restful-api-deno mkdir restful-api-deno 2. After c r eating the directory just  cd  into the directory cd restful-api-deno 3.

Create a folder called hello-deno. mkdir hello-deno cd hello-deno Create a file index.js touch index.js Put the following content in the index.js console.log('Hello Deno'); Now we can run our program from terminal. deno run index.js You shou l d be able to get the following output Hello Deno Congrats. You have just completed your Hello World with Deno. We will create more real-life deno projects in the next article.
