Building an application using Django REST Framework with React JS frontend

Thanks, @jimmy for setting this up. Just like you have with your FastAPI and JS frontend post, I’m going to use this as a form of a diary log for a project I’m working on.

It is called “Green Your Impact”. The idea is that it keeps track of carbon saving activities. The aims are to learn Django REST Framework and React JS. It’s actually an idea a friend came up with…

I don’t know what I’m doing, but that’s where the enjoyment comes from!

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to any updates.

Is there a right way and wrong way to authenticate using react with DRF?

This (article below) seems to use local storage looking for ‘token’. Also, it seems the password us passed through as plain text from front end to the back end?

Cheers for any help.
