Discussion on: What is the difference between Controllers and Services in Node REST API's?

@ccleary00 , have you tried NestJS? With its dependency injection your controller is totally unaware of whether the user or email service is an AWS service, in-memory service, stub service, etc. The controller just knows there will be an addUser method to the user service and what that service does under the hood, the controller doesn't know or care.

Anything to help separate concerns (and reuse and testing!)

I haven't tried it out yet, but will play around with it soon (I keep seeing it mentioned lately)
