I want to make a form where someone can enter their info (name, phone number, email, a message to me, etc.) and when they hit submit, the data will be emailed to me.

Is there a good tutorial on this somewhere or and easy way to do this?

If you are able to work with a basic Node/Express setup and can send and parse form data (or however you want to send your data), you may want to have a look at Nodemailer, the server-side code for sending and receiving mail is trivial compared to setting your form up.

You can try it on glitch and don’t forget to store sensitive information as environment variables.

I hope that helps!

Sounds good. I will have to look into Node because I have never used it before.

There are lots of video tutorials about Forms! And i think there are backend concepts as well!

Which language are you using and are you signed up with any email provider?
