Develop rich, interactive, and real-world web applications using knockout.jsAbout This BookMaster the full range of features provided by knockout.js such as declarative binding, automatic refresh, dependency tracking, and templating using this project based guideTackle real-world problems such as page navigation, forms, composite UI components, maps integration, server interaction for CRUD operations, and application securityDiscover the power of knockout.js as you build applications with complexity ranging from beginner to advancedExtend and customize knockout.js to harness its full potentialIntegrate with third party libraries and APIs to build fully featured applicationsWho This Book Is For

This book is intended for designers and developers who want to learn how to use Knockout to develop rich, interactive, and modular web applications. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the Knockout library but basic familiarity with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript would be helpful.

What You Will LearnExplore the basic concept behind the Model-View-View Model (MVVM) design pattern and how it is implemented by knockout.jsDevelop a modular application skeleton based on the Module Pattern that can be used as a template for your projectsUse knockout.js with other libraries and APIs, such as JQuery, Bootstrap, and the Google Maps API, to give your users a richer experienceCreate real-world dynamic web forms to capture user information and learn how knockout.js makes it easier to capture, validate, and submit form dataDevelop and use dynamic UI components such as grids, tabs, master details view, and wizardsExtend knockout.js to add custom extenders, binding handlers, subscribers, and observablesSecure your single page application using token-based authenticationIn Detail

KnockoutJS By Example is a project-based guide that introduces the key features and concepts of knockout.js. It helps you create an application skeleton and a Hello World application. You will develop a To-Do list application that aims to show the basic features of knockout.js in action, such as data binding and observables, following which you will develop a dynamic online customer registration form that captures and validates customer information. This book will further walk you through developing a customer banking portal, which demonstrates the use of knockout.js with components such as navigation bars, tabs, carousels, master details view, panels, forms, and wizards. You will also discover how to use token-based authentication and authorization to secure the customer banking portal, and move on to creating an editable products grid with CRUD operations. Finally, you will explore how to use the Google Maps API with knockout.js.

KnockoutJS By Example will not only leave you with a basic understanding of knockout.js fundamentals but also take you through some of the advanced features. It will help you get a web application up and ready instantly.

Node.js is the platform of choice for creating modern web services. This fast-paced book gets you up to speed on server-side programming with Node.js 8, as you develop real programs that are small, fast, low-profile, and useful. Take JavaScript beyond the browser, explore dynamic language features, and embrace evented programming.Harness the power of the event loop and non-blocking I/O to create highly parallel microservices and applications. This expanded and updated second edition showcases the latest ECMAScript features, current best practices, and modern development techniques.

JavaScript is the backbone of the modern web, powering nearly every web app's user interface. Node.js is JavaScript for the server. This greatly expanded second edition introduces new language features while dramatically increasing coverage of core topics. Each hands-on chapter offers progressively more challenging topics and techniques, broadening your skill set and enabling you to think in Node.js.

Write asynchronous, non-blocking code using Node.js's style and patterns. Cluster and load balance services with Node.js core features and third-party tools. Harness the power of databases such as Elasticsearch and Redis. Work with many protocols, create RESTful web services, TCP socket clients and servers, and more. Test your code's functionality with Mocha, and manage its life cycle with npm. Discover how Node.js pairs a server-side event loop with a JavaScript runtime to produce screaming fast, non-blocking concurrency. Through a series of practical programming domains, use the latest available ECMAScript features and harness key Node.js classes and popular modules. Create rich command-line tools and a web-based UI using modern web development techniques.

Join the smart and diverse community that's rapidly advancing the state of the art in JavaScript development.

Develop a simple, yet fully-functional modern web application using ASP.NET Core MVC, Entity Framework and Angular 5.About This BookBased on the best-selling book ASP.NET Core and Angular 2Easily build a complete single page application with two of the most impressive frameworks in modern development, ASP.NET Core and AngularBring together the capabilities and features of both Angular 5 and ASP.NET Core 2 for full stack developmentDiscover a comprehensive approach to building your next web project-From managing data, to application design, through to SEO optimization and security Who This Book Is For

This book is for seasoned ASP.NET developers who already know about ASP.NET Core and Angular in general, but want to know more about them and/or understand how to blend them together to craft a production-ready SPA.

What You Will LearnUse ASP.NET Core to its full extent to create a versatile backend layer based on RESTful APIsConsume backend APIs with the brand new Angular 5 HttpClient and use RxJS Observers to feed the frontend UI asynchronouslyImplement an authentication and authorization layer using ASP.NET Identity to support user login with integrated and third-party OAuth 2 providersConfigure a web application in order to accept user-defined data and persist it into the database using server-side APIsSecure your application against threats and vulnerabilities in a time efficient wayConnect different aspects of the ASP. NET Core framework ecosystem and make them interact with each other for a Full-Stack web development experienceIn Detail

Become fluent in both frontend and backend web development by combining the impressive capabilities of ASP.NET Core 2 and Angular 5 from project setup right through the deployment phase.

Full-stack web development means being able to work on both the frontend and backend portions of an application. The frontend is the part that users will see or interact with, while the backend is the underlying engine, that handles the logical flow: server configuration, data storage and retrieval, database interactions, user authentication, and more.

Use the ASP.NET Core MVC framework to implement the backend with API calls and server-side routing. Learn how to put the frontend together using top-notch Angular 5 features such as two-way binding, Observables, and Dependency Injection, build the Data Model with Entity Framework Core, style the frontend with CSS/LESS for a responsive and mobile-friendly UI, handle user input with Forms and Validators, explore different authentication techniques, including the support for third-party OAuth2 providers such as Facebook, and deploy the application using Windows Server, SQL Server, and the IIS/Kestrel reverse proxy.

Style and approach

More than just a technical manual, this guide takes you through the most important technical facets of developing with these two hugely popular frameworks and then demonstrates how to put those skills into practice. It's a book that recognizes that what's really important is the end product.
