Express js with moralis?

Is an Express server necessary with moralis? I know its been made very clear that moralis is serverless, but I need to clear up some confusion on my part since Im somewhat new backend development. Thanks in advance!

It depends on your project requirement, but most of the time you don’t need to, the only time you might need custom backend like Express is when you need to import other library functionality which is not supported in the cloud code, make it a REST API which then can be called in the cloud code

ok so If I am just using moralis with React I shouldnt need a backend server?

correct :raised_hands: and that’s what most people do usually, just React + Moralis

Awesome, thanks! Im sure ill be back with more questions lol
