More fun with AngularJS $http: a loading indicator

In my previous tutorial we used $http to create a utility that automatically converts all ISO 8601 date strings to proper JavaScript dates. $http allows us to do a lot of things. Ever wanted to create a “Loading, please wait…” indicator when your data is loading over your REST service? With $http you can easily […]

AngularJS $http and dates

When you’re writing AngularJS applications, chances are that you’re going to have to consume a REST API. If you’re as lucky as me you’ll encounter a situation where you’ll have to read dates. However, while Date objects are a part of the standard JavaScript specs, it’s not a part of the JSON spec. So… how […]

Using Sinon.js while testing AngularJS applications

I’ve already done quite some tutorials about testing JavaScript applications, recently about testing a Meteor application with Jasmine and Sinon.js. Sinon.js is not only useful to Meteor applications though, and in this article I’ll show you how helpful it can be while testing AngularJS applications.

Setting up AngularJS applications with Yeoman

Where are the good ol’ days when everyone used 1 JavaScript library at most (usually jQuery). With modern applications you need a modern approach, setting up such a project can be hard sometimes, but why re-invent the wheel if there are probably thousands of people who need the same thing? Yeoman helps you to setup your […]

E2E testing your Meteor app with Cucumber, WebdriverIO and Chai

In my previous tutorial I mentioned how to write unit tests for Meteor using Jasmine and Sinon.js on the Velocity platform. In this tutorial I will write some end to end (E2E) tests for the same application, but with some different frameworks. I will still be using Velocity, but as I mentioned in my previous […]

Unit testing Meteor applications with Velocity, Jasmine and Sinon.js

In my previous tutorial I explained some of the basic features of Meteor, a full stack JavaScript platform. In this tutorial I will go more in depth about testing a Meteor application, by testing the chat application we wrote in the previous tutorial.
In this first part I’ll show you how to unit test your Meteor application using the Velocity platform.

Writing a chat application with Meteor

A few days ago I gave an introduction to Meteor for students of UCLL starting of with an empty project and building a complete chat application in the process. The application we’re going to build will look like this:

Executing Jasmine tests with Maven

A while ago I wrote my very first Spring Boot application and I showed you how fast it could be using Spring Boot and AngularJS. I also thought about testing all sides of the application, so I started with writing some integration tests for my REST API, then I wrote some unit tests using Mockito […]

Rapid prototyping with Spring Boot and AngularJS

Recently I wrote an article about writing modern webapps with Spring Data REST and AngularJS. It’s not that hard to write, but it can be done even easier with Spring Boot as pointed out in the comments by Greg Turnquist. I already planned on trying out Spring Boot after some amazing articles about Spring Boot […]
