E2E testing with Nightwatch.js

A while back I wrote some tutorials about E2E testing with FluentLenium (Java), E2E testing for Meteor using Velocity and recently E2E testing AngularJS applications using Protractor. Today I’m also going to test an AngularJS application, but this time I will be using Nightwatch.js. While Nightwatch.js is not made specifically for AngularJS applications, you can […]

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 […]

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 […]

Writing apps with React.js: Writing components using JSX

In my previous tutorial, I’ve set up gulp.js to build my React.js application, now it’s time to write that application. Like I said before, the app I’m going to build in this tutorial, is an application where you can add/remove songs and rate those. We have several components to implement, so let’s start.

Writing apps with React.js: Build using gulp.js and Browserify

Previous week I went to Devoxx and Pratik Patel gave a great talk about React.js. This was enough for me to start playing with the library. React.js is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces by writing components. It’s a view-oriented library which allows you to write isomorphic components which can be used both in […]
