Isomorphic Application Development with JavaScript

Key FeaturesCombine the ease of React in the front end with the power of Node at the back end to build robust apps in pure JavaScriptGet your hands dirty by building on an entire application throughout the course of the bookBecome productive and save precious time by adopting isomorphic JavaScript programming techniquesBook DescriptionThe latest trend in web development, Isomorphic JavaScript, allows developers to overcome some of the shortcomings of single page applications by running the same code on the server as well as on the client. Leading this trend is React, which when coupled with Node, allows developers to build JavaScript apps that are much faster and more SEO-friendly than single page applications.This book will begin by showing you how to develop front-end components in React. It will then show you how to bind these components to the back-end web services that leverage the power of Node. You'll see how web services can be used with React code to offload and maintain the application logic. By the end of this book, you will be able to save a significant amount of development time by learning to combine React and Node to code fast, scalable apps in pure JavaScript.What you will learnBuild on the client side with the awesomeness of ReactStyle your application effectivelyRender the server side using ReactImplement a GraphQL server based on Node, Express, and SQLFetch application data using RelayBuild an isomorphic router to use in the applicationDeploy your application to a cloud hostSecure your application with a solid token-based authentication system
