Node.js is white hot, powering the server side of major web apps from Walmart, PayPal, and Netflix. While super-powerful, raw Node can be complex and awkward. Express.js is a web application framework for Node that organizes server-side JavaScript into testable, maintainable modules. It provides a powerful set of features to efficiently manage routes, requests, and views, along with beautiful boilerplate for web applications. Lightweight, fast, and unobtrusive, Express helps harness Node's raw power so developers can concentrate on what the application does instead of managing the nit-picky technical details. Express in Action is a carefully designed tutorial that teaches developers how to build web applications using Node and Express. It starts by introducing Node's unique characteristics and then shows how they map to the features of Express. With a clear vision of how an Express application looks, readers can systematically explore key development techniques, meet the rich ecosystem of companion tools and libraries, and even get a glimpse into its inner workings. After just a few chapters, they'll be able to build a simple Node app. By the end of the book, they'll know how to test it, hook it up to a database, and even automate the dev process. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

Traditionally, web applications have been architected so that the back-end houses all the front-end code. This has resulted in heavy projects that are difficult to manage and scale. This book will explain a new way to write web applications by treating the front-end as if it were a third-party (such as a mobile client). This book, written by a practicing MEAN developer, will take a holistic approach to using the MEAN JavaScript platform for creating modern web applications and lay out how to use the MEAN (Mongo, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js) set of tools to create a web application, from installation and setup of the tools to debugging and deploying your app. After an introduction to how web development is changing and the advantages of using the MEAN stack, the author jumps into an introduction to each tool and then dives into using the complete JavaScript-based application stack to build, test, and deploy apps.

The Comprehensive Book on Express.js The in-depth, detailed, hand-on manual on Express.js, the most popular Node.js framework. Will get you up and running fast and save you time. Understand the concepts, learn the best practices. Become an Express.js expert today. Express.js API reference, quick start guides, 20+ meticulously explained examples and tutorials -- over 270 pages with more than 60 illustrations. Quick Start The Interface TIps and Tricks Tutorials and Examples Why Express.js is the most popular Node.js web framework yet. As of this writing (September of 2013), there are no books that are solely dedicated to it. Its official website has bits of insights for advanced Node.js programmers. However, I found that many people -- including those who go through HackReactor7 program and come to my Node.js classes at General Assembly and pariSOMA -- are interested in a comprehensive resource. The one that would cover all the different components of Express.js work together in a real production-like application. The goal of Express.js Guide is to become such resource. What This Book is Express.js Guide is a concise book on one particular library. This book contains Express.js API 3.3.58 description, the best practices on code organization and patterns, real-world examples of web apps. The topics include but not limited to middleware, command-line interface and scaffolding, ren- dering templates, extracting params from dynamic URLs, parsing payloads and cookies, managing authentication with sessions, error handling and prepping apps for production. For more details and for what exactly the book covers, please refer to the Table of Contents. What This Book is Not This book is not an introduction to Node.js, nor is it a book that covers all aspects of building a modern day web application, e.g., websockets, databases and (of course) front-end development. Keep in mind that readers also won't find in Express.js Guide a resource for learning programming and/or JavaScript fundamentals. You might want to take a look at Rapid Prototyping with JS9 for the introduction to Node.js, MongoDB and front-end development with Backbone.js. In the real-world and especially in Node.js development, due to its modularized philosophy, we seldom use just a single framework. In the book, we have tried to stick only to Express.js and leave everything else out as much as possible, without compromising the usefulness of examples. Therefore, we intentionally left out some important chunks of web developments, for example databases, authentication and testing. Although these elements are present in tutorials and examples, they're not explained in detail. For those materials, you could check books in the Related Reading and Resources section at the end of the book. Who This Book is For This book is for people fluent in programming and front-end JavaScript. In addition, to get the most benefits, readers must be familiar with basic Node.js concepts like process and global, and know core modules, including streams, clusters and buffer type. If you're thinking of starting a Node.js app, or of rewriting an existing one, and your weapon of choice is Express.js -- this guide is for you! It will answer most of your "how" and "why" questions.

Thus, when building RESTful services, the right choice for the underlying platform is vital. Node.js, with its asynchronous, event-driven architecture, is exactly the right choice to build RESTful APIs. This book will help you enrich your development skills to create scalable, server-side, RESTful applications based on the Node.js platform. Starting with the fundamentals of REST, you will understand why RESTful web services are better data provisioning solution than other technologies. You will start setting up a development environment by installing Node.js, Express.js, and other modules. Next, you will write a simple HTTP request handler and create and test Node.js modules using automated tests and mock objects. You will then have to choose the most appropriate data storage type, having options between a key/value or document data store, and also you will implement automated tests for it. This module will evolve chapter by chapter until it turns into a full-fledged and secure Restful service. Style and approach Create state of the art RESTful API solutions leveraging Node.JS 4.x.
