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 […]
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 […]
In this final part of the introduction to AngularJS series I’m going to write a directive. When you start writing apps using AngularJS, you will eventually have to re-use certain UI components over and over again. The best way to componentize these small pieces of user interface + behavior, we use directives. Directives are very […]
In this second part of the tutorials series about introducing AngularJS I’m going to talk about filters and factories. In the first part we made our first AngularJS application and wrote a small controller. What we learned in that tutorial is that AngularJS biggest trump is that it has two way data binding, which means that […]
In this introduction tutorial series to AngularJS I’m going to build a small webapp introducing several aspects of AngularJS like controllers, filters, services and directives. I’m going to explain all of that by creating an artist/song-rating app, which (in the end) will look like: Awesome, don’t you think?
HTML5 made browsers a powerful alternative to desktop applications. However, network traffic (when using AJAX or by simply loading pages) is always in one direction. The client requests a page from the server, which in turn responds with the proper content. With HTML5 WebSockets that’s a different story, websockets allow you to setup a full duplex […]
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 […]
In the previous tutorial I already configured the entire web application, so that part is already behind us. In this tutorial I will add the code necessary to make the data access + websockets + RESTful webservice work. I’m going to work my way from the bottom up to the top, so the first step […]
