This is a template or “starter code” that can be used as a base in other MERN(MongoDB, Express, ReactJS, NodeJS) Projects, Enabling me and other Developers who use this to focus on the core features of their project, rather than bothering with setting up the Frameworks and writing authentication code from scratch

I created this project while learning React, NodeJS, Express, MongoDB and Docker which were all new technologies for me at that point.

It contains a functional ReactJS front-end and a NodeJS backend integrated with MongoDB, Login and Registration functions, with persistence of logins achieved using Sessions, and Fully responsive across Tablet, Mobile and Desktop

This project also has support for protected routes on the React front-end, and support for rate-limiting and input validation at the NodeJS back-end
