how do i convert from strapi to mern stack

import { getValueProps, mediaUploadMapper } from "@refinedev/strapi-v4"; export const CreateCompany: React.FC<CreateCompanyProps> = ({ modalProps, formProps, }) => { return ( <Modal {...modalProps} title="Create Company"> <Form {...formProps} layout="vertical" onFinish={(values) => { formProps.onFinish?.(mediaUploadMapper(values)); }} > <Form.Item label="Company Name" name="name" rules={[ { required: true, }, ]} > <Input /> </Form.Item> <Form.Item label="Company Address" name="address"> <Input /> </Form.Item> <Form.Item label="Company Country" name="country"> <Input /> </Form.Item> <Form.Item label="Email" name="email" rules={[ { required: true, type: "email", }, ]} > <Input /> </Form.Item> <Form.Item label="Website" name="website"> <Input /> </Form.Item> <Form.Item label="Company Logo"> <Form.Item name="logo" valuePropName="fileList" getValueProps={(data) => getValueProps(data, API_URL)} noStyle rules={[ { required: true, }, ]} > <Upload.Dragger name="files" action={${API_URL}/api/upload} headers={{ Authorization: Bearer ${localStorage.getItem(TOKEN_KEY)}, }} listType="picture" multiple > <p className="ant-upload-text">Drag & drop a file in this area</p> </Upload.Dragger> </Form.Item> </Form.Item> </Form> </Modal> ); }; I want to convert strapi to mern stack

Hi @jakshire01. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- I'm sorry, but the information provided in the extracts does not contain specific instructions or examples on how to convert a Strapi application to a MERN stack application. However, it's important to note that Strapi is a headless CMS that can be used with any front-end system that can make HTTP requests, including applications built with the MERN stack (MongoDB, Express.js, React.js, Node.js). The conversion would involve setting up a new MERN stack application and configuring it to use your existing Strapi API for data management. This would likely involve rewriting a significant portion of your application, especially the parts that interact with the database and the front-end. For more detailed instructions, you may want to refer to the official documentation or tutorials for each of the technologies in the MERN stack, as well as the Strapi documentation. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I just want to know how can we handle onfinish and image uploading only in scope of this file

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- In the context of the provided file, the onFinish function is used to handle the form submission. When the form is submitted, the onFinish function is called with the form values as its argument. In this case, the onFinish function is used to transform the form values using the mediaUploadMapper function before submitting them. Here is the relevant code snippet:
onFinish={(values) => {
formProps.onFinish?.(mediaUploadMapper(values));
}}
onFinish={(values) => {
formProps.onFinish?.(mediaUploadMapper(values));
}}
The mediaUploadMapper function is presumably used to convert the uploaded file(s) to a format that can be sent to the server, such as Base64. As for the image uploading, it's handled by the Upload.Dragger component from Ant Design. The name prop is set to "files", which is the key that will be associated with the uploaded file(s) in the POST request. The action prop is set to the URL of the server-side endpoint that will handle the file upload. The headers prop is used to set the authorization header for the request. Here is the relevant code snippet:
<Upload.Dragger
name="files"
action={`${API_URL}/api/upload`}
headers={{
Authorization: `Bearer ${localStorage.getItem(TOKEN_KEY)}`,
}}
listType="picture"
multiple
>
<p className="ant-upload-text">Drag & drop a file in this area</p>
</Upload.Dragger>
<Upload.Dragger
name="files"
action={`${API_URL}/api/upload`}
headers={{
Authorization: `Bearer ${localStorage.getItem(TOKEN_KEY)}`,
}}
listType="picture"
multiple
>
<p className="ant-upload-text">Drag & drop a file in this area</p>
</Upload.Dragger>
Please note that the actual implementation of the mediaUploadMapper function and the server-side file upload handling are not provided in the extracts. For more detailed information, you may want to refer to the Refine (https://refine.dev/docs/advanced-tutorials/upload/base64-upload) and Ant Design (https://ant.design/components/form/#Form) documentation. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai how would i handle onfinish for mern stack only in scope of this file i dont want to use strapi mediaUploadMapper

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- In the context of a MERN stack application, you would handle the onFinish function in a similar way, but instead of using Strapi's mediaUploadMapper, you would need to implement your own logic to handle the form values and the image upload. Here's a simplified example of how you might handle the onFinish function:
onFinish={(values) => {
// Handle form values here
// For example, you might convert the image file to Base64 or create a FormData object
const formData = new FormData();
formData.append('file', values.logo.file.originFileObj);

// Then, you could send a POST request to your server-side endpoint
axios.post(`${API_URL}/api/upload`, formData, {
headers: {
'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data',
Authorization: `Bearer ${localStorage.getItem(TOKEN_KEY)}`,
},
})
.then(response => {
// Handle response here
})
.catch(error => {
// Handle error here
});
}}
onFinish={(values) => {
// Handle form values here
// For example, you might convert the image file to Base64 or create a FormData object
const formData = new FormData();
formData.append('file', values.logo.file.originFileObj);

// Then, you could send a POST request to your server-side endpoint
axios.post(`${API_URL}/api/upload`, formData, {
headers: {
'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data',
Authorization: `Bearer ${localStorage.getItem(TOKEN_KEY)}`,
},
})
.then(response => {
// Handle response here
})
.catch(error => {
// Handle error here
});
}}
In this example, axios is used to send a POST request to the server-side endpoint. The image file is appended to a FormData object, which is then sent in the body of the request. The Authorization header is set in the same way as in your original code. Please note that this is a simplified example and the actual implementation may vary depending on your specific requirements and the structure of your MERN stack application. For more detailed information, you may want to refer to the MERN stack (https://www.mongodb.com/mern-stack) and axios (https://axios-http.com/docs/intro) documentation. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
