Front-End Jammming Project - using newer React features and .env variables

I finished the project! I couldn’t refer to the solution code much, because I’m using newer React features, but I did refer to it regarding the access token. I couldn’t have figured it out on my own.

Here is my solution on GitHub:
And here is the live site on Netlify:

I tested it a little on my own, and it works for me, but I’m curious to know if it works for other people. Let me know!

@byte903 was kind enough to take the time to post step-by-step guidelines on hiding sensitive data using .env and Netlify. Here is her post.

I still have to write the README file and do more testing. I want to have a message pop up when the list is successfully saved. Right now, it just disappears, so the user wouldn’t know if it was actually saved or not.

I’m curious - how much time did this take you?

@figgenfenk It took me four days, at a few hours a day (I’m at work during the day), so I would say, about ten hours? To be fair, this is my second time doing this project. The first time was in my full-stack class, and it took me a lot longer, even though we had starter code. I’m starting to get the hang of it, finally! It gets easier the more you practice.

Yea that tracks with how much time I’m spending on it. Right now taking a deliberate sabbatical so working on code 7-8 hours a day roughly. Just wanted to hear that others were spending as much time as I was! Congrats on the progress and good luck!
