Accessing the database from your Front End

You must have noticed in main.controller.js how things were retrieved from the database and displayed:

    $scope.awesomeThings = awesomeThings;  

What this does is call the api with a “get” request, which is then routed by /server/api/thing/index.js to the exports.index function in thing.controller.js. You’ll also notice in main.controller.js that there are included examples of $ and $http.delete functions too! How nice!
