Get more with Less using Grunt

In my previous tutorial I explained how you could use Grunt to create a nice and easy build environment.

In this tutorial I’m going to modify that application a bit and integrate GruntJS into it. For those who are wondering what Grunt is, well, it’s the task runner written in JavaScript, […]

Two months ago I wrote a small tutorial series about writing a small application using AngularJS. In that series I talked about the most common parts of AngularJS like controllers, services, filters and directives. However, AngularJS is more than just that, AngularJS also comes with an entire mocking framework, which makes the life of the […]

Working with Nodember

A while back I wrote a tutorial about writing a small app using Ember.js by storing its data inside the HTML5 LocalStorage. In this tutorial I will be using Node.js REST webservice and store the data into a MongoDB database. By writing both front-end and back-end in JavaScript, I’m able to write an entire application […]

JavaScript is more important than ever. In today’s applications, JavaScript is used to create certain effect, make websites more interactive and improve the user experience. But you can achieve much more using JavaScript. There are MVC frameworks like AngularJS that help you structure the entire front-end part of your application and even more. With the […]

Working with the MEAN stack: MVC

In the previous tutorial I finished the configuration of the application so that in this tutorial we can concentrate ourself on the Model-View-Controller part of the application. The application consists of two parts, the server- and the client-side part of the application. Both of them use the Model-View-Controller pattern though. First of all, let’s start by […]

Working with the MEAN stack: Application setup

In an earlier article/tutorial series I told you how you could create your own application using AngularJS and the HTML Local storage to persist the data. If you missed it, be sure to check it out here. The local storage is great but what if we want to persist the data somewhere inside a database […]

Ember.js in action

If you’re a developer for the past five years you may have noticed an explosion in the JavaScript world. Suddenly frameworks, concepts, standards and building tools are popping everywhere. The browser is becoming a valuable alternative to desktop applications and if you didn’t already hop on to the JavaScript train towards the future, then it’s […]

Ember.js in action: Components and views

In our last two tutorials we made a simple song list app where you could add/delete songs from a list. To make the app really good we’re going to add a rating component to the app, allowing us to rate the songs and eventually sort them based on their rating. 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 […]

Dojo require vs define

I didn’t exactly plan on writin this, but after a question from an intern, I thought it might be interesting to exaplain the difference between require() and define(). Every developer who has used Dojo or even another JavaScript framework/platform like Node.js and RequireJS, knows that one time or another, you need to load your modules. In Dojo they chose […]

Mapping beans with MapStruct

Recently, I wrote several tutorials about Spring boot and Spring Data JPA. A common issue that appears when writing large applications is that you don’t want to use your entities on your front-end. The reason behind this is that your entity usually resembles how your database and your tables look like, while your model or […]

Consuming REST API’s with Spring

In the last tutorial we created a small REST API. So now that the “producing REST API” step is completed, it’s time to start consuming it in another Spring boot project. Last time we’ve already set up a module for this project, called spring-boot-rest-client.
