Project Description

An application programming interface (API) is an interface through which programs can talk to each other without knowing their inner specifics. It can be used to create a server-side program that can interact with various client applications.

We’ll develop a robust and scalable REST API for an image-sharing application using the Express framework for Node.js to interact with the MongoDB database to fetch and store data. The application will provide users with the ability to register, log in, create image posts, and update their own posts. After registering, users will be able to manage their username, email, and profile picture. The API will handle image uploads, allowing users to create image posts with optional captions or descriptions.
