Mastering Meteor: Powerful Reactive Applications with Full-Stack JavaScript

Lynda.com - Mon, 09/26/2016 - 20:00
Authored By: George McKnight

Released On: 9/27/2016

Meteor enables end-to-end client and server-side web application development entirely in JavaScript. Its reactive approach makes Meteor a good choice for real-time applications, and the platform provides an excellent option for deployment to mobile. This course gets right under the hood of the Meteor platform, demonstrating how to take advantage of its powerful development engine to build exciting reactive applications.

George Mcknight starts by carefully designing an application structure and building a single-page layout with multipage routing and authentication. Then he reviews the database data, and looks at how to work with subscriptions and queries. George also dives into the options for templating, with a look at dynamic Blaze templates and the Spacebars templating language. Learn about event handling and then find out how to test your application using Cucumber and Jasmine. After that, George deploys the application locally on the Meteor server, and then to Amazon to set it up for frequent updates and hot code deployment. Finally, you'll learn how to work with third-party integrations and set up REST endpoints to interact with other external services such as PayPal.

Authored By: Rudolf Olah

Released On: 9/27/2016

AngularJS offers the perfect balance between layout and code, making the framework a favorite of developers around the world. But what you might not know is that Angular also provides an outstanding infrastructure for testing, for developing bug-free and easily maintainable applications. Learning AngularJS Testing helps you to understand the different aspects involved in testing Angular components, including controllers and directives, with the help of a practical pizza-ordering application.

Author Rudolf Olah starts by installing and initializing various helpful testing tools, such as Karma, Jasmine, and Grunt. Then he creates controllers for ordering the pizza and reviewing the order, and tests them with and without dependencies. Chapter 3 shows how to create accordion directives for the application, unit test them, and resolve the errors if these tests fail. Rudolf also goes through testing of the navigation between two controllers with the help of End2End testing. Finally, learn how to modify services to use the $resource module and interact with REST API web services, as well as unit test them with the help of mocks and spies. Rudolf also shows how to create and test directives and controllers that fetch information from the service and display it. Note: Learning AngularJS Testing was created by Packt Publishing.

The course wraps with a chapter dedicated to building a more complete app with React.js and companion tools like Babel, NPM, and more.
