This hands-on book looks past the hype and buzzwords surrounding HTML5 and gives you a conservative and practical approach to using HTML5, JavaScript MVC frameworks, and the latest W3C specifications. You’ll quickly master how to build mobile and desktop web apps that are widely supported across all major web browsers and devices. Even though Web Storage, Web Workers, Geolocation, Device Orientation, and WebSockets have been covered many times in the past, it is often from a very high or basic level. This book goes into the trenches to review actual use cases for each of these APIs and gives real-world examples on how to use each one. If you're familiar with JavaScript, CSS and HTML basics and are ready to start piecing together the architecture of HTML5, then this book is for you. Assemble a coherent architectural whole from HTML5’s complex collection of parts Gain a clear understanding of client-side architecture and the "mobile first" approach Design, create, and tune eye-catching and robust mobile web apps Explore how the top five JavaScript MVC frameworks interact with the server Learn best practices for setting up a raw WebSocket server Examine how sites such as Google, Twitter, and Amazon store data on the client Use real-world methods for applying geolocation, and learn the pitfalls of various implementations Process images and other data in the background with Web Workers

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.

If you’re a web developer interested in building scalable single-page applications—full-stack, browser-based apps that connect to a backend—this practical guide shows you how to use Ember.js, the popular JavaScript framework based on the model-view-controller (MVC) architectural pattern. Through the course of the book, you’ll learn how to build a prototype Ember application (a musician index called Rock’n’Roll Call), using routers, templates, models, controllers, and views. You’ll also understand how Ember’s convention over configuration approach helps you persist data, build backend technologies, and create widgets for developing production-capable applications that behave like desktop software. Set up workflow management and boilerplate code creation Learn how Ember’s “developer ergonomics” help you use less code Write templates for the book’s prototype with Handlebars.js Use routers to manage application states without reloading the page Connect controllers and views with events, and sync data with data-binding Build an Ember backend with a RESTful API or Ruby on Rails Use the Ember-Data library to persist data and talk to the backend Write reusable encapsulated widgets to extend your applications
