Todo List Project Code – Node, Express, EJS

We are creating a sample to-do list app using Node and Express JS. The templating for the app is done using Embedded Javascript (EJS). In this app, we will be creating lists for basic tasks, work tasks as separate pages.

So here is the source code of the to-do list app. The main entry file of the app is app.js.

app.js

const express = require("express");
const bodyParser = require("body-parser");
const date = require(__dirname + "/date.js");

const app = express();

let items = ["buy food", "eat food"];
let workItems = [];

app.set('view engine', 'ejs');

app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({extended:true}));
app.use(express.static("public"));


app.get("/", function(req,res){

    let day = date.getDate();
    res.render("list", {listTitle: day, newListItems: items});

});


app.post("/", function(req, res){
    let item = req.body.input;
    //console.log(req.body);
    if(req.body.submit === 'Work'){
        workItems.push(item);
        res.redirect("/work");
    }else{
        items.push(item);
        res.redirect("/");
    }

});

app.get("/work", function(req,res){
    res.render("list", {listTitle:"Work", newListItems: workItems});
});

app.post("/work",function(req, res){
    let item = req.body.input;
    workItems.push(item);
    res.redirect("/work");
});


app.get("/about", function(req, res){
    res.render("about");
})

app.listen(3000, function(){
    console.log("Server started on port 3000");
})

date.js

exports.getDate = function(){
    const today = new Date();

    const options = {
        weekday: "long",
        day: "numeric",
        month: "long"
    };

    return today.toLocaleDateString("en-US", options);
}

exports.getDay = function() {
    const today = new Date();

    const options = {
        weekday: "long"
    };

    return today.toLocaleDateString("en-US", options);
}
