Fudo - A Fast Food Ordering App Built Using Nextjs, Prisma and PlanetScaleDB


4 min read

Hi Guys, I heard about the Hashnode x Planetscale hackathon some few weeks back, and thought of exploring this serverless database offered by PlanetScale in building a full stack e-commerce application.

Introducing Fudo

So what is Fudo? Fudo is a one-stop centre where fast food lovers can quickly shop for their preferred choice of meal. The idea of Fudo stems from when I create full-stack applications where I need to build the backend separately from the front end i.e build the backend then host on Heroku, digital ocean or railway then make the connection from the hosted backend server with the front-end. With Planetscale and NextJs, you can easily set up your database and connect with your front end easily using the built-in API with NextJS.


Ecommerce/Shopping Application is one of the area of web application where front-end developer loves to build in but often times they are stuck with building the backend server from connecting to the database to creating API endpoints. But with Nextjs and Planetscale, it was very easy creating my database in MySQL, creating schemas, reading, writing, updating and reading data using the Prisma ORM.

Stack Used

  • Front End - Nextjs

  • ORM - Prisma

  • Database - PlanetScale

  • State Management - Redux Toolkit

  • Client Side Data Fetching - SWR

  • Hosting- Vercel

Prisma ER Diagram


Here is the application's Prisma schema visualization as an entity-relationship diagram. The product model consists of several fields which include relations with product price and product extras. Also, there is an order model that has fields for managing customer orders for delivery and their order status.
