Forest recommendation Express Sequelize Postgres

Hey guys

I’m starting my forest projet and was wondering if it not better to use ForestAdmin/forest-express-sequelize than lumber ?

My stack is stack is :

  • Nodejs
  • Postgres

Hi @caid,

Theoretically, you could be able to craft your admin panel directly using forest-express-sequelize.

However Lumber is the preferred way for building your API backend as it will setup your project with the rights parameters, environment variables and configuration required for a fast and efficient onboarding.

Moreover, if you wanted to add forest-express-sequelize directly on top of your project, you’ll need to twick things a bit to make it work and it would probably makes things a bit harder for us to assist you if you face any issues.

I hope I’ve been able to answer your question :slight_smile:

Best regards,

Hey @lamatt_v,

Thanks a lot for your answer!
I think I’ll stay with Lumber (it will be easier if I need some help)
