BUILDING A FULL API with NodeJS + Strapi in 5 minutes or less (amazing!)

A while ago, I decided to go hands-on with this amazing #strapi tool.
The test results couldn't have been better, I'm totally in love with Strapi! haha

What is Strapi?
A Content Management Framework (CMF) that facilitates general software development.

What does the tool offer?
-Elegant and intuitive admin panel
-Community plugins and the power to create our own plugins
-Agnostic front-end, able to integrate with any front-end technology (ReactJS, Vue, ReactNative, Flutter...)
-Security and varied authorization policies
-Open source and as Strapi.io says, ALWAYS FREE
-Very participatory community and always keeping everything up to date

It was pretty easy to install the dependencies and run the project.
With the project locally, connecting to the MongoDB database was done quickly.
The administrative panel is super intuitive and has short tutorial videos. Quite simply, I didn't mess with a line of code! oO - But can be added if needed.
With all this I set up a Webservice quickly, very robust and easy to maintain. (Full CRUD and relational tables).

The framework is wonderful, I recommend all devs to give it a try.
For those who already know, that each day, with the help of the strong community, this CMS is increasingly robust. âĪ
