Node.Js: The Comprehensive Guide (Paperback)
Getting Started with Node.js Begin your journey with Node.js. Learn about the core components of the environment such as the V8 engine and libraries. Then install Node.js and explore application development tools and the module system.
Developing Applications Develop web applications by following practical code examples. Set up a web server using HTTP and develop apps step by step using the Express and Nest.js frameworks. Connect databases, generate interfaces using the REST server and GraphQL, implement command-line tools, handle asynchronous programming, and more.
Managing ApplicationsManage your Node.js applications from development to deployment. Learn how to use package managers, implement tests, and protect against security threats. Get expert tips on scalability and performance to optimize your apps.
This book includes:
1) More than 800 pages on Node.js 2) Concrete solutions for practical use cases 3) Detailed, numbered code listings 4) Tables, figures, note boxes, and screenshots 5) A comprehensive index6) All code examples available as downloadable supplements
The structure of the book:
To help structure your learning process, you can think of the book as having four distinct parts: - The first part covers the Node.js basics and provides a hands-on introduction to the module system. - The second part provides practical examples from web development. You'll learn about important frameworks such as Express and template engines like Pug. - The third part is dedicated to asynchronous programming. You'll learn how to deal with promises and child processes, and also how to use data streams in development. - The fourth part offers best practices and troubleshooting tips for developers. You'll find valuable knowledge for everyday developer tasks, solutions for common problems, and security considerations.
