What we are going to build

1. Building user profile (sign up & sign in)

In this tutorial, we will learn how to implement authentication of users.

Backend

Signup + Login

2. Admin Panel: Add Product and Categories

Every e-commerce app need products organised into categories

So now let’s add the products and categories section to our app

In this tutorial, we will display the products and the categories of various products in our app.

Clicking on a particular product will show its details and also the options for buying it, adding to the cart, and adding to the wishlist section.

Backend + Android

Image upload service

We will develop a file upload service, which will be used for image upload in our e-Commerce App using Java Spring Boot

Backend + Frontend for Product
