MySQL Editor in NodeJS

This is a short break from my Adventures of a Hobbyist series, where I'm learning node, to put some of what I've learnt into practice.

I'm not sure how long this mini-series will last but the aim is to make a web interface that lets you connect to a MySQL database to view and, if I get around to it, edit the tables.

Once I have a working prototype I'll put it up on GitHub and we'll see if anyone has any pull requests or issues to report.

Progress so far

So far I've put in the bare bones of the connection screen, this is loosely modelled on MySQL workbench but with a material twist.

Home screen:

Dialogue

I use a JSON file to store the server details, not passwords, of course, to do this I'm using confHelper which is something I wrote earlier, here's the post where I look at it. I'm also using expressjs for my routing this time.

The code

I haven't really commented the code so far and I'm worried it will get out of hand fast. If you have any tips for commenting the code nicely I'm all ears.

Just to give you an idea of my super simple structure here's a picture.

stucture

As with all things with my projects if I'm doing something wrong let me know πŸ˜€

Server:

const express = require('express');
const app = express();
var path = require('path');
const ConfHelper = require('./conf_import');
const ch = new ConfHelper('servers');

app.get('/', function(req, res) {
  res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/pages/index.html'));
});

app.get('/styles/default.css', function(req, res) {
  res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/styles/default.css'));
});

app.get('/favicon.ico', function(req, res) {
  res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/pages/favicon.ico'));
});

app.get('/api/servers', function(req, res) {
  res.json(ch.config.get().servers);
});

app.listen(80);

The end

So that's as far as I got today, I have a long to-do list you may have noticed this version doesn't even interact with any MySQL stuff yet. It's a long journey, thank you for coming along with me.

Thanks again πŸ¦„πŸ¦„πŸ¦„
