#1

So I’ve finally finished my first full-stack app, utilizing React+Redux and Express + Mongo (MERN).

This was quite experience (frustration but rewarding). I think I spent more time on getting the app to run vs. the logic of connecting everything together.

At the moment it’s not the most optimal solution, but I am happy the way it turned out.

Anyway, I’d appreciate if you guys give it try and see if there is anything I should work on.

Thanks!

I don’t know… without be logged I can remove pulls and I don’t see any option etc… What happens?

P.s.: I started this project too… ( very alpha https://github.com/NeckersBOX/votingapp … in 1 week some hours every day now work only sign up/login/logout :sweat_smile: )

Oops, I forgot to add the feature of having users to add extra options…I’ll work on that soon.

So were you able to delete polls even without being signed in?


#4

Without do login if I open a poll:

When I click on delete I can remove this poll from the main list.


#5

Hmm interesting. I can’t seem to replicate on my computer.

Did it delete successfully? Was it the car model poll?

Console log from chrome:

Seems it delete from db, yes ( maybe you can see I’ve deleted just some minutes ago some polls ) and this affects all polls.


#7

Wow thats strange…I know error is webpack related reloader, but I can’t seem to replicate of being able to delete polls without being signed in :fearful:


#8

Have you tryed to go in incognito mode on heroku version?

This is what I see:

Wow, thanks for the gif! I will take a look at it!

I finished my Voting App a week ago, so I’m no expert, but I looked at your code and I can’t see where are you protecting your routes.

It looks like now you are just hiding delete button, but I can make DELETE call to https://votez-app.herokuapp.com/polls/poll-id-which-i-can-grab-from-url with cUrl or Postman and voila, poll deleted without authentication.
