In this video, Emmanuel Henri introduces all the libraries that are used in this project to build the API and its endpoints.
The next one is MongoDB, so you can go to mongodb.com. So this is basically the database that we'll use to persist our data. And finally, if you go to babeljs.io. So basically this is what we're going to use so we can basically write ES6 Syntax. And Babel will transpile our code for us so we don't have to worry about the proper syntax. So with these tools we'll be able to build the API. We can call in with any front end applications, or tools such as Postman.
