Shut It is a small project that allows me to shut down my computer from my phone (there are probably other tools for that but I wanted it to be mine).
It uses Node.js ran as a Windows service (hence the serviceSetup.js in the shutit-pc), it uses as a medium a real time database (powered by Firebase).
On the user end, it runs a React Native application made for the purpose.
(Uses Node.js 14.15.0)
