In this video, learn how to leverage the data we imported and have one of the endpoints return the data.
- [Instructor] Being able to return data…from a database or data loaded into our server…is just about every server's purpose.…Let's work on something like this.…So go back to S code and then open the index.js…and then let's go in the app.get meta.…So right now what we're doing is basically…calling on to this path,…and whenever we call on to this path,…we are responding with a get request blah, blah, blah.…So we want to change this.…Let's change this with an actual response with data.…
And the way you do this, and let me just delete that,…so delete line number 8,…and the way you do this is very, very simple.…So if we had a Mongo database or SQL database…that's connected to the server,…what we would do first is basically call on to that server…and get the data, so like we've done here.…We've imported the data, but let's say, for example,…we had a Mongo DB connected.…We would need to get the data first,…and return it, and then send it to our client.…
So, we would do something like so:…So response JSON and then path whatever is the data…
