Upload Multiple images to cloudinary Node, MongoDB, Express

Hello there
In this post we are going to create a backend Node JS server that uses the cloudinary library to upload multiple images at once because cloudinary doesn't support multiple images by default so we are going to find a way around it. Brace yourselves, I hope you are excited as I am.


We will need the following installed on our machines to get started;

Let get started.

First, we create our project folder and also initialize our project using the following.

mkdir cloud_mutilple_image
cd cloud_mutilple_image
npm inti

which would create a package.json file for us.


Next, we would structure our project, in the root folder we would need to create a server.js file, which would be the main entry point of our application, then we will need a helper folder to contain our application helper.js file. Our project structure would look like this.
