re: Backend or Frontend First? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I prefer to define my API schema contract first.

I do this by using something like json-server to create a "fake API" endpoint. I can then use these mocked out endpoints to build my front-end.

I find that building the front-end often leads me to think about what data I need to display and that lends itself to updating the mock, and then, in turn, informs what's required when building the backend.
