With modern tools. it is possible to create a production grade, full-stack application using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript alone. The combination of MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js has become so popular that it has earned the title MEAN stack -- the subject of this book. This book explores the MEAN stack in detail. We will begin by covering Node.js, as it will lay the groundwork for all of our server-side work. You will learn how to get Node running on your local machine as well as download modules using npm. The key aspects of the Node.js programming model will also be covered. From there, we will move on to MongoDB, where you'll learn how to interact with Mongo from a Node application. You will also learn how to create, retrieve, update, and delete data from a Mongo store. After you have a solid grasp on Node and Mongo, the book will move on to the Express web server. We'll cover the basics of Express applications via topics like routes and middleware. Building on previous chapters, we will cover the integration of Node, Mongo, and Express. Our coverage of the MEAN stack will wrap up with several chapters on AngularJS. These chapters will cover Angular fundamentals like data binding, directives, controllers, routing, and services. In an effort to explore competing technologies, a slight introduction to Ember.js will also be provided. Full stack JavaScript is not fully encompassed by the MEAN stack. There is an entire ecosystem of JavaScript tools to learn about, and this book will introduce a few of them. We will cover task runners Gulp.js and Grunt.js which are extremely useful for automating mundane, repetitive tasks. We'll also cover JSHint, a linting tool used to improve code quality. Linting tools analyze source code and report potentials issues - a feature that is especially useful in non-compiled languages like JavaScript.

Take your application to the next level of high performance using the extensive capabilities of Node.js About This Book Analyze, benchmark, and profile your Node.js application to find slow spots, and push it to the limit by eliminating performance bottlenecks Learn the basis of performance analysis using Node.js Explore the high performance capabilities of Node.js, along with best practices In Detail Node.js is a tool written in C, which allows you to use JavaScript on the server-side. High performance on a platform like Node.js is knowing how to take advantage of every aspect of your hardware, helping memory management act at its best, and correctly deciding how to architect a complex application. Do not panic if your applications start consuming a lot of memory; instead spot the leak and solve it fast with Node.js by monitoring and stopping it before it becomes an issue. This book will provide you with the skills you need to analyze the performance of your application and monitor the aspects that can and should be. Starting with performance analysis concepts and their importance in helping Node.js developers eliminate performance bottlenecks, this book will take you through development patterns to avoid performance penalties. You will learn the importance of garbage collection and its behaviour,and discover how to profile your processor, allowing better performance and scalability. You will then learn about the different types of data storage methods. Moving on, you will get to grips with testing and benchmarking applications to avoid unknown application test zones. Lastly, you will explore the limits that external components can impose in your application in the form of bottlenecks. By following the examples in each chapter, you will discover tips to getting better performing applications by avoiding anti-patterns and stretching the limits of your environment as much as possible. What You Will Learn Develop applications using well-defined and well-tested development patterns Explore memory management and garbage collection to improve performance Monitor memory changes and analyze heap snapshots Profile the CPU and improve your code to avoid patterns that force intensive processor usage Understand the importance of data and when you should cache information. Learn to always test your code and benchmark when needed Extend your application’s scope and know what other elements can influence performance Who This Book Is For This book is for Node.js developers who want a more in-depth knowledge of the platform to improve the performance of their applications. Whether you have a base Node.js background or you are an expert who knows the garbage collector and wants to leverage it to make applications more robust, the examples in this book will benefit you. Style and approach This is a practical guide to learning high performance, which even the least experienced developer will comprehend. Small and simple examples help you test concepts yourself and easily adapt them to any application, boosting its performance and preparing it for the real-world.

Learn to develop efficient and scalable microservices for server-side programming in Node.js using this hands-on guide About This Book Real world example explained chapter after chapter with code examples. Useful concepts for other languages like Java or PHP Easy to follow by people with little to none experience in Node.js Node.js Version 0.12.2 and the latest compatible versions of Seneca and PM2 Who This Book Is For Node.js developer with basic server-side development knowledge - but no knowledge of implementing microservices in Node.js applications. Also useful for developers in other languages like Java or C#. What You Will Learn Identify where the microservice oriented architectures can tackle the most common problems in the software used by the big organisations. Re-architecture an existing monolithic system into a microservices oriented software. Build robust and scalable microservices using Seneca and Node.js. Testing of the microservices in insolation in order to create a solid system. Deploy and manage microservices using PM2 Monitoring the health of a microservice (CPU, memory, I/O...) and how the degradation of the performance in one microservice could degrade the performance of full system. In Detail Microservices architecture is a style of software architecture. As the name suggests, microservicess refers to small services. For a large implementation, this means breaking the system into really small, independent services. Alternative to monolithic architecture (where the entire system is considered as a single big, interwoven segment), microservices approach is getting more and more popular with large, complex applications that have a very long lifecycle, which require changes at regular intervals. Microservices approach allows this type of changes with ease as only a part of the system undergoes changes and change control is easy. An example of such large system can be an online store—includes user interface, managing product catalog, processing orders, managing customer's account. In a microservices architecture each of these tasks will be divided and into smaller services. Also, these services will be further broken down into independent services—for user interface, there will be separate services for input, output, search bar management, and so on. Similarly, all other tasks can be divided in very small and simple services. Style and approach This book is a comprehensive guide to developing production-ready implementation of the microservices architecture with Node.js. Each chapter builds up on the earlier one creating a strong foundation on which you create your own microservice in a distributed environment.
