To simplify our examples, we are going to use SQLite3. It is preinstalled database on Linux, Unix and MacOSX, so there’s no need to set it up. sqlite extension’s file. It has an interface based on SQL language very similar to other databases and is present not only on desktop systems but on mobile applications as well. js, there are several frameworks that works with SQLite3. js module, which is a complete module and has a nice interface and is very easy to work. On it, it is possible to manipulate data using SQL commands (or not) and it also supports the main SQL databases, such as: Postgres, MariaDB, MySQL, SQL Server and SQLite3.

This is the value of the params variable, which in this case, there is no need to include parameters to filter the tasks list. The callback of this function returns the tasks variable, which was created to return, for while, some static values from his model. So, at this point, we are sure that tasks is going to return an static array with some tasks descriptions. To finish these refactorings, let’s create a file, which is going to load all the middlewares and specific settings of Express. set("json spaces", 4).

Listing tasks via GET We already have a basic middleware for treating all the task’s resources, now let’s implement some CRUD functions, step-by-step. findAll({}). Although it is a bad practice to list all data, we are only using it for didactic matters. But chill out that throughout the chapters some arguments will be implemented to make this list of tasks more specific. The search results occurs via then() function and if any problem happens, you can handle them via catch() function. An important detail about API’s development is to treat all or the most important results using the correct HTTP status code, in this case a successful result will return by default the 200 OK status.
