This project was motivated by the frustration of having to copy and paste the same markdown in numerous blogging platform. For my part, opening all of these sites, copying the markdown, pasting it, and publishing took a lot of time. This issue is what inspired me to create this specific app.

How I built it

My experience with mongoDB is not new. Using mongoDB, I've already created a few applications. To be more specific with this application "easy blog", Mongo DB is the most required technology. Because, whenever user publish article it gets saved into mongo db and then only it gets saved to other blogging platform (dev and hashnode). But question arrives..

Why I'm saving articles on MongoDB ?
Well, this app not only allows you to publish article in dev and hashnode, but it also allows you to edit and delete the articles from dev and hashnode. So, In order to track the articles details, I'm storing the articles in mongo DB too. Further more, in this application MongoDb atlas is widely used for storing user JWT tokens, user details.
