I’m struggling with posting the database from mongoose cloud I’ve tried to look for videos on youtube for this url shortner project but I can’t keep up with the tutorials I get so lost along the way don’t really understand what’s going on . I’m using glitch to solve this problem
here is the link below of my code really appreciate your help thank you

You do not have any of your own code yet, and have not installed Mongoose.

If you are completely stuck with how to start, I would suggest these resources:

  1. https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/apis-and-microservices/#mongodb-and-mongoose - Lessons on MongoDB and Mongoose
  2. https://mongoosejs.com/ - Mongoose Docs
  3. https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/apis-and-microservices/#basic-node-and-express - might be beneficial to do the Basic Node and Express section again.

Hope this helps
