We have previously seen a simple todo app using FeathersJS(and NeDB). Feathers makes it really easy to develop an API or a real-time app by providing a super-powered baseline that can be extended quickly to create a useful app. However, the example provided earlier does not provide a set of features anywhere near the real-world experience.
Fastode is an experimental boilerplate / framework based on Fastify. Why another boilerplate? Well, I just wanted to experiment with technologies to create MVP products. Although I have used NestJS, AdonisJS and friends before, those frameworks, while being great, bring their structure and overhead to any project. I wanted to check how difficult or easy it is to just start with a bunch of basic features and leave everything else to the project.
#rant that none asked for. I came across this whitepaper on testing micro services. I clicked on this link because I am writing microservices now but I am fairly new to microservices. I did a mistake that I have repeated 1593 times in the past. The said link was a resource by one of the big IT service providers.
I had been meaning to use more of Fastify for work, but only made that a reality recently. So far I have had a great experience on the server framework. What is Fastify? Fastify is a low-overhead server framework built on top of NodeJS. Fastify was started in late 2016 and jumped to v1.
I was getting back to Svelte for a small project and ran into a strange issue. npm run dev did not run the svelte app as expected - no output or errors. First I create a new project. 1 2 3 4 npx degit sveltejs/template awesome-project-1 cd awesome-project-1 npm i npm run dev And, I get greeted with nothing.
Create a simple to-do API using FeathersJS v4. FeathersJS v4 launched yesterday, and I wanted to see what changed. Of course, I wasn’t going to write a post just about v4 - I have not kept up with the Feathers ecosystem. So, let’s refresh our mind and soul by building a quick API and see how the story develops.
Let’s create a simple ‘to do’ application using Svelte and GraphQL. The objective is to demonstrate getting started on a GraphQL query and insert operation in a Svelte component. If you are new to Svelte, you may want to go over what Svelte can do from the official site, or see Svelte quick overview.
Lucid ORM, the official ORM of AdonisJS, is based on knex.js. It is one of the friendlier ORMs that provides the ease of using a readable syntax along with a better performance than some of the feature-heavy ORMs. But, I have been recently torn between using one or the other.
Use database migration utilities in Adonis to its complete potential. Carry out incremental updates - may it be a new table, or changes to existing table using distinct migration files that are version controlled. You have a beautiful Todo application that has a todos table with the following columns: description status end_date Now, let’s say our users ask for a new field called planned_end_date.
