- Using Jest to test your Node.js application
After checking out AVA and tape, it’s time to check out Jest. Jest is a testing framework developed by Facebook, and is often used to test React applications. However, it isn’t limited to just React, so let’s explore the features it has by testing a small Node.js application!
- Testing your Node.js application with tape
Last time, I tested a simple Node.js application I wrote with AVA. While my initial experience with AVA was great, it’s probably still worth it to compare it with other testing frameworks. Another testing framework I seem to hear a lot about is tape. One of the main advantages of tape is that it produces […]
- Testing your Node.js application with AVA
A while ago, I wrote a simple GraphQL API using Node.js, Express.js, Apollo and Mongoose. While the API probably works, we didn’t really invest any time to write some unit tests for it. That’s going to change now. There are many testing frameworks and test runners out there, but in this tutorial I’ll be checking […]
- Progressive Web Apps with Angular CLI
One of the buzzwords of Google nowadays is Progressive Web Apps or shortly PWA’s. In this tutorial we’ll learn what progressive webapps exactly are. Additionally we’ll see how we can use them and how we can integrate it with Angular and Angular CLI.
- Generating documentation for your REST API with Spring REST Docs
Last time, we automatically generated documentation for our REST APIs written with Spring using Swagger annotations, Springfox and AsciiDoc. This allowed us to list all possible operations, models and so on. Additionally to such documentation, it could be interesting to have some examples as well. With Spring REST Docs we can automatically generate these examples […]

- 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 […]
- Using WebSockets with Spring, AngularJS and SockJS
A while ago I wrote a tutorial about writing a web application using Spring, AngularJS and WebSockets. However, that tutorial only used a fraction of what WebSockets could do, so in this tutorial I will explain how you can write a small chat app using the same frameworks; Spring, AngularJS, Stomp.js and SockJS.
- Writing real time applications using Spring and AngularJS (Part 3: AngularJS)
In the previous two tutorials I made the entire back-end for the real time application. You probably have noticed that the configuration part actually took longer than actually writing the application itself, this is because there’s a lot of magic behind the screens (think about the data access layer we didn’t have to write). This […]
- 2017: Year in review
While 2017 was mostly an inactive year for me, that doesn’t mean that we didn’t have any visitors! So let’s review what happened last year. Visitors The amount of visitors is similar to last year. While we gained a bit more visitors, we got less pageviews overall, but that makes sense, since we didn’t really […]
- 2016: Year in review
A bit later than usual, but here it is! The year in review of g00glen00b.be! (Yes, that’s the site you’re visiting right now) During this time of the year (though we’re a bit too late), people all around the world gather and review last year. We, we jump onto that bandwagon and do the same […]
- CloudFlare, good or bad?
If you’re a developer like me and you spent some of your time on Reddit or StackOverflow, you probably might have encountered some articles about CloudFlare last week, like CloudFlare is ruining the internet (for me) and CloudFlare is ruining Stack Overflow for me with its recaptcha. Reading these articles made me want to evaluate […]
