Did you use a template to start this project?

Other than the create-react-app for the front-end, when starting the API project that uses express, apollo etc. was there a template you used to bootstrap the project?
Or did you just start with an express project and then slowly build it from there?

Oh gosh, I just spent a while trying to find some of the earlier commits but can't really remember exactly how things started

I'm guessing we just spun up an express + node server and iterated from there. I know we originally used Firebase way way early on, so moving off of that probably has a solid commit that started up the new api server :P just gotta find it

Not really, mostly just went with create-react-app and the basic structure enforced by https://github.com/jaredpalmer/backpack

Speaking of recommendations, if you guys went with postgresql, which ORM would you go with? (something that pairs with graphql also)
