This article will show you how to develop a CRUD REST API in a Node.js environment using an Express.js server and a PostgreSQL database.
REST is one of the most widely used protocols for building API contracts. As a result, they're built such that parameters can be used to change HTTP requests to return the desired data, commonly in JSON.
