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.

Learn how to leverage Node.JS, Express, MongoDB and NoSQL datastores to give an extra edge to your REST API design. Use this practical guide to integrate MongoDB in your Node.js application. Who This Book Is For The ideal target audience for this book is web developers who have some experience with RESTful services. Familiarity with basic JavaScript programming techniques is required. No prior experience with Node.JS or Express.js is required. What You Will Learn Install, develop, and test your own Node.js user modules Comprehend the differences between an HTTP and a RESTful application Optimize RESTful service URI routing with best practices Eliminate third-party dependencies in your tests with mocking Learn about NoSQL data stores and integrate MongoDB in your Node.js application with Mongoose Secure your services with NoSQL database integration within Node.js applications Enrich your development skills to create scalable, server-side, RESTful applications based on the Node.js platform In Detail In this era of cloud computing, every data provisioning solution is built in a scalable and fail-safe way. 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.

Build powerful cross-platform desktop applications with web technologies such as Node, NW.JS, Electron, and React About This Book Build different cross-platform HTML5 desktop applications right from planning, designing, and deployment to enhancement, testing, and delivery Forget the pain of cross-platform compatibility and build efficient apps that can be easily deployed on different platforms. Build simple to advanced HTML5 desktop apps, by integrating them with other popular frameworks and libraries such as Electron, Node.JS, Nw.js, React, Redux, and TypeScript Who This Book Is For This book has been written for developers interested in creating desktop applications with HTML5. The first part requires essential web-master skills (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript). The second demands minimal experience with React. And finally for the third it would be helpful to have a basic knowledge of React, Redux, and TypeScript. What You Will Learn Plan, design, and develop different cross-platform desktop apps Application architecture with React and local state Application architecture with React and Redux store Code design with TypeScript interfaces and specialized types CSS and component libraries such as Photonkit, Material UI, and React MDL HTML5 APIs such as desktop notifications, WebSockets, WebRTC, and others Desktop environment integration APIs of NW.js and Electron Package and distribute for NW.JS and Electron In Detail Building and maintaining cross-platform desktop applications with native languages isn't a trivial task. Since it's hard to simulate on a foreign platform, packaging and distribution can be quite platform-specific and testing cross-platform apps is pretty complicated.In such scenarios, web technologies such as HTML5 and JavaScript can be your lifesaver. HTML5 desktop applications can be distributed across different platforms (Window, MacOS, and Linux) without any modifications to the code. The book starts with a walk-through on building a simple file explorer from scratch powered by NW.JS. So you will practice the most exciting features of bleeding edge CSS and JavaScript. In addition you will learn to use the desktop environment integration API, source code protection, packaging, and auto-updating with NW.JS. As the second application you will build a chat-system example implemented with Electron and React. While developing the chat app, you will get Photonkit. Next, you will create a screen capturer with NW.JS, React, and Redux. Finally, you will examine an RSS-reader built with TypeScript, React, Redux, and Electron. Generic UI components will be reused from the React MDL library. By the end of the book, you will have built four desktop apps. You will have covered everything from planning, designing, and development to the enhancement, testing, and delivery of these apps. Style and approach Filled with real world examples, this book teaches you to build cross-platform desktop apps right from scratch using a step-by-step approach.
