In this chapter, we learned about additional NPM package dependencies that we will use to build out our application. These tools are well used by the community and therefore well tested and reliable. Using packages from the Node ecosystem is one of the most valuable benefits of Node. It saves us from having to write, test, and maintain this extra code ourselves.
In the next chapter, we will review what we will be building in detail. We'll see what the various components of our application will be, and we'll start coding the React side of our application.
