Initially, we want to integrate an interview preparation component into the system. This may require full-time work hours for a few weeks. Later on, the workload will focus on maintenance.
There are third-party APIs used to integrate with the system.
Notification system and activity feed - [login to view URL] (Front-end and Back-end)
Page analytics - Google Analytics (Front-end)
Email sending - Google Mail Service Account (Back-end)
The back-end is primarily powered using Node.js and Express. The architectural style of the back-end is monolithic. MongoDB is the database provider. Moreover, the other technologies and libraries in the back-end are:
Email - Pug and email-templates
Database ORM - Mongoose
Access Level Control - CASL
Validation - Joi and express-validation
Authentication - Passport, JWT using RS256
Security - Helmet and Csurf
Db-mocker - generate random fake data for users, scenarios, and answers for later database population
Db-seeder - insert the data from db-mocker to the database so that an emulated environment can be made
The front-end is powered using Angular 10. The main look-and-feel of the app is achieved through Angular Material and Angular Flex Layout.
Both the front-end and back-end are hosted in a DigitalOcean Ubuntu droplet. The back-end Node.js process is running on PM2 while the front-end is served using nginx. A reverse proxy is configured so that the Nginx server (front-end) can interface with the Node.js server (back-end). The SSL certificate is provided for free by Let’s Encrypt and the certificate is programmed for automatic renewal.
