What is the best way for frontend to communicate with database, when in development?

I actually mean,

  • Minimally create a backend
  • Expose overly powerful / dangerous API endpoints in development
  • Move functions from frontend to backend
  • Drop potentially dangerous API endpoints in production

  • Mock your API calls so you don't need to create or expose dangerous API endpoints.
  • When your front end is ready, create the actual secure back end API in your development environment.
  • Push your production ready code live.
  • Don't do any coding work in production environments.

Search "mocking API calls in [front end]". I see there are lots of good results for Vue.

Not all websites require an API, but if you need one you have to make one. Also your question is vague.
