Summary

Isomorphic Web Applications teaches you to build production-quality web apps using isomorphic architecture. Designed for working developers, this book offers examples in relevant frameworks like React, Redux, Angular, Ember, and webpack.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Build secure web apps that perform beautifully with high, low, or no bandwidth. Isomorphic web apps employ a pattern that exploits the full stack, storing data locally and minimizing server hits. They render flawlessly, maximize SEO, and offer opportunities to share code and libraries between client and server.

About the Book

Isomorphic Web Applications teaches you to build production-quality web apps using isomorphic architecture. You'll learn to create and render views for both server and browser, optimize local storage, streamline server interactions, and handle data serialization. Designed for working developers, this book offers examples in relevant frameworks like React, Redux, Angular, Ember, and webpack. You'll also explore unique debugging and testing techniques and master specific SEO skills.

What's Inside

  • Controlling browser and server user sessions
  • Combining server-rendered and SPA architectures
  • Building best-practice React applications
  • Debugging and testing

About the Reader

To benefit from this book, readers need to know JavaScript, HTML5, and a framework of their choice, including React and Angular.
