Node-Express API

Lets create a folder and create file index.js and paste the following API site content

const express = require('express')
const app=express()
require("dotenv").config();

app.get('/',(req,res)=>
  res.json([{name:'manoj',email:'codehat@outlook.com'
  },
  {name:'mariah',email:'codehat@outlook.com'
  }])
)
app.listen(process.env.PORT || 3000,()=>console.log(`Server running on port ${process.env.PORT}`))
