I’m a Frontend Developer building a new web application with MongoDB Atlas, MongoDB Realm, Next.js, and React.
I am reading the documentation for Authentication in MongoDB Realm, and I’m trying to understand whether I need to use Node.js SDK or Web SDK?
If I go with Web SDK, I will have to use GraphQL or the MongoDB query language.
I was planning to use Node.js and Express on the backend. With MongoDB Realm, I can implement Authentication and other features, which makes me question whether I even need Node.js and Express on the backend.
Does it mean I don’t have to use Node.js in the backend?
How do I talk to the Database then (using Node drivers?).
If anyone could explain to me how to best set up my application (especially the backend part) with the tools I mentioned above, that would be helpful. Thank you!
