Extend the capabilities of AngularJS and build dynamic web applications by creating customized directives with this selection of more than 30 recipesAbout This BookLearn how to extend HTML templates in new ways to build even better web applications with exceptional interface componentsBuild reusable directives for large-scale AngularJS applicationsCreate even sophisticated and impressive modern web apps with easeWho This Book Is For

This book is for developers with AngularJS experience who want to extend their knowledge to create or customize directives in any type of AngularJS application. Some experience of modern tools such as Yeoman and Bower would be helpful, but is not a requirement.

What You Will LearnBuild and customize external HTML templates, and create simple, effective directives for common interface componentsLearn how to use Controller function and any Bootstrap UI directives to manipulate the DOM and how to transform any UI library into AngularJS directivesConstruct an AngularJS application to use shared components and validate your HTML5Discover how to use jQuery events and manipulate the DOM using jQuery UI inside AngularJS applicationsCreate custom directives for ongoing projects using Yeoman generators, and find out how to implement standalone directivesBuild reusable directives for Large AngularJS applications and extend directives to use dynamic templatesWrite unit test for directives using the Karma runner and Jasmine's behavior-driven development frameworkIn Detail

AngularJS directives are at the center of what makes it such an exciting – and important - web development framework. With directives, you can take greater control over HTML elements on your web pages – they 'direct' Angular's HTML compiler to behave in the way you want it to. It makes building modern web applications a much more expressive experience, and allows you to focus more closely on improving the way that user interaction impacts the DOM and the way your app manages data. If you're already using Angular, you probably recognize the power of directives to transform the way you understand and build your projects – but customizing and creating your own directives to harness AngularJS to its full potential can be more challenging. This cookbook shows you how to do just that – it's a valuable resource that demonstrates how to use directives at every stage in the workflow.

Packed with an extensive range of solutions and tips that AngularJS developers shouldn't do without, you'll find out how to make the most of directives. You'll find recipes demonstrating how to build a number of different user interface components with directives, so you can take complete control over how users interact with your application. You'll also learn how directives can simplify the way you work by creating reusable directives – by customizing them with Yeoman you can be confident that you're application has the robust architecture that forms the bedrock of the best user experiences. You'll also find recipes that will help you learn how to unit test directives, so you can be confident in the reliability and performance of your application.

Whether you're looking for guidance to dive deeper into AngularJS directives, or you want a reliable resource, relevant to today's web development challenges, AngularJS Directives Cookbook delivers everything you need in an easily accessible way.

Style and approach

This book easy-to-follow guide is packed with hands-on recipes to help you build modular AngularJS applications with custom directives. It presents tips on using the best tools and various ways to use these tools for front-end development.

Create powerful applications with ReactJS, the most popular platform for web developers todayAbout This BookCreate web apps with the most popular JavaScript library in the worldLearn how to speed up your development process and save valuable timeWork though step-by-step tutorials that provide easy-to-understand solutions to real-world problemsWho This Book Is For

This book is for those who want to develop applications with ReactJS. With its wide variety of topics, it caters both to the inexperienced developer as well as to the advanced, and it doesn't require any prior experience with ReactJS.

What You Will LearnCreate a development environment that speeds up your development processFind out about responsive web development and create apps that can be used on any deviceEffortlessly connect to public and private APIsCreate efficient components that are easily testable and small enough to completely understandUnderstand what data flow means in ReactJS and why you never need to worry about where data changes originateCreate universal apps that run on the browser as well as on the serverWork with modern front-end tooling and level up your skillsTrain yourself to think in terms of ReactJSIn Detail

The JavaScript revolution has landed! ReactJS is one of those rare technologies that comes out of nowhere and turns established practices on their head. It provides a different way of thinking about how you should develop your apps, and has already gained a massive adoption among web developers. Join the revolution, build web apps faster, and have more fun developing!

Packed with real-world code, this book starts by covering the idea behind ReactJS and the key concepts you must familiarize yourself with. You will learn how to bootstrap your ReactJS projects and you'll also be provided with a handy scaffolding that you can use and reuse over and over.

We then go on to cover a wide variety of apps, and will help you to structure and build your own components. Next, you will build a web shop, create a fully responsive and routable app, and also develop a real-time search app. Further on, you will be taught to work with public APIs to create a map-based application. You will also be taken through some advanced concepts such as Redux that are making a huge splash currently in the world of ReactJS. You'll learn how to efficiently seal off your app for guest access, interact with hardware APIs, and create a photo app. You will then master the art of making your apps universal, and find out how to deploy them to the cloud. Finally, we wrap up the book as you are shown how to make a game. What better way to kick off your ReactJS development journey?
