Sweater weather is an app that allows users to plan ahead for road trips. Users can enter their origin and destination locations and receive information about the travel time, current weather, and forecasted weather upon estimated time of arrival at their destination. This project is the app backend, which includes user authentication, consumes several external APIs, and provides internal REST API endpoints to the app frontend.
