go-react starter

For everyone looking to get started with building web apps and auth APIs with go.

I worked on a go and react project over the weekend to help you get started on authentication with golang, complete with a postgresql database and token based authentication using JWT.

Here is the url.

This is a basic example of a go web server with a react frontend.

It uses the go fiber framework

Getting started

Running locally

Download and install postgres

Setup your postgres database, env secrets can be changed in the .env file

This will start the go server & the react frontend.
