Add Voting to Your App in 2 Minutes
Would you like to add something akin to a Facebook “like” or a Reddit “upvote” to your app? Midtype now allows you to do that in about…
This week, we’re excited to launch the Midtype template gallery. Now, you can create custom apps from a template with just one click.
The Midtype template gallery serves to demonstrate how easy it is to get a custom app up and running with Midtype. Just pick one of our templates—we’ll spin up a backend with some data preloaded that you can play around with so that you don’t have to wait for production data to know your API works as you’d expect. And every template comes with a frontend starter kit that can be connected to your backend and deployed in minutes. Voila! You have your very own app. Find a template close to the use case you’re looking for and simply modify the frontend or backend to meet your needs.
Every Midtype template comes with two components: a backend and a frontend.
When creating a Midtype project for the first time, you’ll now be greeted with the option to start it from a template. We highly recommend you use a template!
Once you’ve picked your template, give you project a valid ID, and then we’ll get to work creating it. Remember, Midtype only only creates and deploys the backend for your app. You still need to deploy your frontend. Luckily, every template comes with a frontend starter that works perfectly with your backend. On the new dashboard screen for your Midtype project, you’ll see the recommended frontend starter for your template.
You’ll notice that you can start using the starter in one of three ways:
Each of these options requires you to create a
.env file in your forked repo and configure the environment variables according to your Midtype backend. Read the
README file in the root of your frontend starter for instructions on how to do this.
