Prisma is an open source database toolkit. It consists of three main tools:
These tools aim to increase an application developer’s productivity in their database workflows. One of the top benefits of Prisma is the level of abstraction it provides: Instead of figuring out complex SQL queries or schema migrations, application developers can reason about their data in a more intuitive way when using Prisma to work with their database.
In this tutorial, you will build a REST API for a small blogging application in TypeScript using Prisma and a PostgreSQL database. You will set up your PostgreSQL database locally with Docker and implement the REST API routes using Express. At the end of the tutorial, you will have a web server running locally on your machine that can respond to various HTTP requests and read and write data in the database.
