This was my hands-on project with golang apart from tutorials. The most complicated aspect of building the back-end was the intergation with MongoDB. Unfortunately, Go does not have a convienient ORM for MongoDB like mongoose for javascript. Instead, I ended up writing all the queries myself using the official database drive. Apart from the minor greviance, building the API using Gin was actually pretty simple and its framework structure was pretty intutive although albiet not as simple as express.
