Leverage the power of React and Node to build complete web applications in pure JavaScript About This Book Combine the ease of React in the front end with the power of Node at the back end to build robust apps in pure JavaScript Get your hands dirty by building on an entire application throughout the course of the book Become productive and save precious time by adopting isomorphic JavaScript programming techniques Who This Book Is For This book is ideally meant for intermediate web developers who are interested in building isomorphic applications using JavaScript. What You Will Learn Build on the client side with the awesomeness of React Style your application effectively Render the server side using React Implement a GraphQL server based on Node, Express, and SQL Fetch application data using Relay Build an isomorphic router to use in the application Deploy your application to a cloud host Secure your application with a solid token-based authentication system In Detail The 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 begins by showing you how to develop frontend components in React. It will then show you how to bind these components to 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. Style and approach This step-by-step, example-based guide will get you acquainted with using React for the front end as well as back-end development.

Isomorphic web applications have the capability to reuse code across environments, increasing the synergy between the web server and the web browser. This book is a hands-on guide that will show you how to build and deploy an Isomorphic Go web application. Isomorphic Go begins with an in-depth exploration of the benefits provided by the isomorphic web application architecture. You'll be introduced to the Isomorphic Go toolchain, and how it can help you write Go code that functions across environments. You'll learn how to create Go programs in the web browser using GopherJS and how to render isomorphic templates. Then you'll be introduced to end-to-end application routing, use isomorphic handoff to seamlessly transition state from the web server to the web browser, and compose isomorphic forms that have the ability to reuse form validation logic. You'll be exposed to advanced concepts including the implementation of real-time web application functionality with websockets and the creation of reusable components (cogs) that are rendered using the virtual DOM. Finally, you'll see how to deploy an Isomorphic Go web application to a production environment.
