Hey Jared, love this blog post! It was very helpful. Is there any configuration changes I need to do when deploying a project after implementing this? I'm deploying a project to heroku using this. Let me know! thanks

Hey thanks for checking it out and glad it helped! Everything should work as expected . Just don't forget to set your env variables for heroku :)

Hey! could you please tell me how you deployed it to Heroku?
I have the frontend on Netlify and when I try to deploy all the code related to express, nodemailer and all that, the deployment fails.

Hey Juan I am not to familiar with netlify but heres is a blog post breaking it down: dev.to/lindakatcodes/a-beginners-g...

Let me know if that works.

There is also another way to deploy your server (node.js). I haven't tried this way yet but this way seems a lot less complicated. Check out this video for the step by steps: youtu.be/ENrzD9HAZK4 fast forward to 14:55 where he starts explaining how to deploy your server.

Hope this helps!
