Importance of platforms like Reddit

Hello everyone!

Wanted to give you a quick update and share with you my experience from this weekend, since it was craaazyy!!

I decided that it was good idea to start talking about YAWE in some platforms for developers, and since I'm a Reddit user I shared the service in the Javascript subreddit. And wow, I had an explosion of requests!

Service usage

This shows how important these communities are. After all, one of the hardest parts of building something it to get users in the beginning, so these platforms for sure help. I also enjoy dev.to and soon will start posting some articles there, so make sure you check it out.

And ah, remember to give something back, in my case I intend to share some of the things I'm learning during this project.

If you are interested in the post on Reddit, here you go: https://www.reddit.com/r/javascript/comments/l8omne/yawe_create_crud_endpoints_connected_to_a/.

Take care guys!

Master keys

Hi all!

There’s a new feature available: Master Keys!!

Now, let me give you a bit of background why these keys are important.

I also use YAWE for other projects as it is a good way to test the service and see what’s missing. During one of those projects I realized that there was no way to access the data stored in secure endpoints, and the same for Authentication endpoints. Secure endpoints require you to be logged in, and Authentication endpoints data is only accessible to its creator.

This was problematic because, as a developer I might need to check the data stored, or modify it in case of problems.

TLDR: Master Keys allow you to access the data in all your endpoints, it removes the need for Access tokens or restrictions applied to Authentication endpoints.

And ah, one tip, don’t use Master keys directly in your application, it leaves the endpoint unprotected.

You can find more details in the Project documentation.

I hope you guys find this feature useful. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us!

Stay safe!

Hi and welcome to YAWE!

I'm super excited to share YAWE with the world and I really hope it will help lots of people!

So, what is this service?

As many other developers I love to put my ideas into practice or simply explore the new tech that is out there, especially in the front-end world. But I always faced the same problem. To start a new project that required storing data I have to write a new back-end (or copy), and most of times it's either for authentication or to have CRUD endpoints.

So I decided to write a generic back-end that I could reuse for these projects. And yes, I'm sure you are thinking it, during development I actually realized that this could be helpful for other developers as well, and that's how YAWE was born, YOUR API WITH EASE!

Now, I do acknowledge that there are other solutions out there and more powerful than YAWE. For example Firebase. The difference is, with YAWE you use plain old HTTP requests, which I'm sure all of you are familiar with, and you are not required to learn a new library.

Who is this for?

For all developers who need a place to store data, without having to create a back-end service or manage a database. YAWE does it for you!

This is a platform made by developers for other developers. If you have suggestions, we are listening!
