In Detail

Express is a small but powerful Node.js web application framework that provides a robust set of features for building all kinds of web applications, from single page to hybrid ones. Express contains the bare minimum glue needed for developing web applications, without obscuring the features we know and love from Node.js.

Prototyping an application is one thing, but making sure it's ready to launch is a whole different story. This book will enable you to create maintainable, high performance and scalable web applications that will meet your production needs.
From getting started to how to develop, hone and protect your application with Express, this book gives you all the practical information you need to feel truly confident with the advanced features of Express.

The essential bits and pieces of the framework are explained at the beginning, for a better understanding of the strong points of the framework. From there, we’ll take you through the development of the application, from using middleware and template engines to RESTful APIs. By the end, you will have mastered the patterns of reusable code and error handling, and have learnt about other important aspects like debugging, monitoring and security.
