Express 4.x / AngularJS / Mongo Example

Posted on Updated on

This is a revamping of the code examples from the phloxblog.in blog post “Single Page Application with Angular.js, Node.js and MongoDB (MongoJS Module)” by Piyas De.

This post is not meant to replace that post. It is only intended to complement it by showing updated code examples.

You can find all of the code in the GitHub repository: https://github.com/jamsyoung/angular-mongo-examples

The examples have been updated to use Express 4.x, use a more RESTful API, pass JSHint (via grunt), install angular via Bower and work as a npm package. This repository also includes a configuration file for EditorConfig. You should check it out if you are not familiar with it.

This uses a MongoLab database. If this post leads to that database getting used for things other than this example, it will be deleted without notice.

Automated Functional Testing Prototypes in Node

Posted on Updated on

I am just starting to look into a good solution for automated functional tests for Node. Let me define that since many people have different definitions of what an “automated functional test” is.

To me, an automated functional test is a test that can be run by a command line script that will execute against a page in a web browser.

This is different than unit tests, which are not run against a web browser.

The end goal is to hook this into a continuous integration environment and executed on every commit to source control. That is later.

I am initially testing out the following melting pot of technologies:
