Running Locally

At the root of the project, you should have a .env with the following contents

JWT_EXPIRE=30d // or anything you prefer
MONGOURI=

Then run npm i && npm run dev to start the development server

Deploying the backend to heroku

First create an heroku account and install the heroku cli globally and login

npm i -g heroku
heroku login

Once logged in, create a new heroku application and push it to the remote 'heroku'

git push heroku master

Then we need to manually setup the environmental variables using the heroku dashboard
