What is Estuary?

I created Estuary as a test project. I wanted something with similar functionality to 750 Words but with more customizability for me personally. And that's what this app is: a testing ground for increased functionality and more features using NodeJS and MongoDB

What can Estuary do so far?

Well, you can do the following:

  • Register and create a user
  • Log in and log out of your account
  • Create free writes or notes that save to the database
  • Take notes during your free write by hitting enter beginning the new line with #n or #N and then hitting enter again
  • email a list of your notes to yourself at the push of a button
  • set the option to receive email updates of your notes every day at 6:00am EST

What's under the hood?

Here's what running Estuary behind the scenes:

  • EJS templates (no fancy Front-End framework yet)
  • BootStrap and some custom CSS
  • Express for the routing
  • NodeJS for the server-side logic
  • MongoDB and Mongoose for Database and ORM, respectively
  • Heroku and GitHub for deployment

Have any ideas for improvements?
