A guide to creating your first AngularJS application. This part will show you how to create the HTML, CSS & AngularJS taking data from a JSON object.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
Imagine for a second the fact that, five years ago, we already had frameworks like jQuery to play with, and while not as functional and feature rich as today – it was already possible to configure and play with the web in hardly imaginable ways.
Today, there are literally hundreds of thousands of frameworks available to anyone who is brave enough to learn something new. Yes, most of them play very tiny role in the collective evolution of web development, but even that tiny contribution counts.
Have a look at my post on the top web programming languages in 2014 – if you’ve been following the trend, it will not be hard to see that most of those languages have held the top spot for over a decade.
I’m sure you know a lot of this stuff already, but it doesn’t hurt to refresh your memory and bask in a little bit of nostalgia from time to time. If you think that I didn’t mention your favorite framework because I hate you: surprisingly, you’d be right!

When I first started building apps that used the Angular JS + Express + Mongo + Node setup... the helpful resources on how to do so we're scarce.
Anyhow, depending on the level of interest, I'll continue walking through how I setup everything from accounts to security to payments to SSL. But for now, all this is is setting up the development environment. Just getting all the pieces can often turn into a nightmare, so I wanted to share how I do it. This setup covers the following:
* Making the server nothing more than a REST service* Keeping all tools and generators easily updated and independent* Making deployment relatively simple.* Have unit tests available separately for the front-end. (if you're in to that type of thing)* Uses the magic of Yeoman and Generators for quick scaffolding.* Read #5 again. Because Yeoman is that cool.
Do any of the following sound familiar?
* It’s hard to debug your view, because you have no idea where that Scope member is coming from* When you inspect a Scope, you double-take because you thought it was the window object* You at some point needed to access a child Scope member from a parent Scope, so you either either a) used $broadcast/$on to call it, or b) just moved the member into the parent Scope* It’s unclear what is happening after any given user action, because there are umpteen-hundred events being emitted or broadcast* There’s at least one service that is 1,000 lines long and is full of just random settings* You either have one entry point into $http, or $http calls are scattered about controllers
These are all mistakes, and they are easy mistakes to make. The solution to all of these problems is the same: refactor.

Everyone talks about Node.js these days, but you’re not quite sure what it is? Or, do you just want to impress your friends with some nerd knowledge? This article will take you on a quick ride through the world of Node.js!
As previously mentioned, Node ships with a collection of core modules. This section describes three commonly used core modules, but this section is by no means comprehensive.
If you want to use more than the core modules, there is no way around using Node’s Package Manager, or npm. npm installs third party modules from its registry which contains over 64,000 modules.
Guys dont't cry. It's going to be a great sunny trip to Peru for a month. For your daily update consider:
There are a lot of front end development tools that will allow you to build an EmberJS application using CoffeeScript, Sass and the other tools that we like to use on projects. After evaluating them we settled on using a basic Rails application instead; primarily for simplicity. The project had a short timeline and we didn't want to have to worry about another tool that we were not familiar with. In the future I would love to try building an Ember UI using a front end tool such as Tapas with Ember but we didn't have any complaints with using Rails in this case and it made our stack a bit simpler to use.
LigerMobile is a lightweight open source framework that helps you develop hybrid apps quickly and easily. If you are looking for a tool to build a hybrid app, create a prototype, or just need a stepping stone to full native app development — this is a great way to begin.
In this article I’ll introduce you to QUnit, a testing framework that will help you spot errors and bugs in your code.
At first, this process may seem complex and tedious. Creating a test for all of your functions does take some time, but it will save you hours of debugging at the end of the project cycle.
Not only that, but you’ll save yourself the blushes we all get when a client emails us about a bug they’ve found.
As a further benefit, you’ll find that this workflow also benefits cross-browser testing, and using this approach you can test in several browsers straight out of the box.
Vis.js is a dynamic, browser based visualization library. The library is designed to be easy to use, to handle large amounts of dynamic data, and to enable manipulation of and interaction with the data. The library consists of the components DataSet, Timeline, and Graph.
The Backbone.js library allows you to develop responsive web applications with clear separation of Model and View. DOM Events associated with Collection helps to notify the UI elements about Updates and accordingly to display refreshed data
In Backbone, the View (UI) is generally rendered using HTML Templates, and elements declared in this Template are accessible to View, but it might be possible that the HTML page (or MVC view or .aspx) already contains HTML elements and you need to handle the DOM events for these elements. The question then is how to handle them? In the following implementation, we will see that the ‘click’ event for the html button element is handled inside the View object. The method which gets executed for the click event is used to add the model object into the collection and then the collection is rendered using HTML Table.
Firebase really seems to fix one of the pain points that I currently have in client-server development, which is how to send/synchronise data across multiple clients (including the server).
I first heard about Firebase from the Wire up a Backend example that can be found at http://angularjs.org, and today I was able to give it a test drive.
1) Creating an Firebase account
2) Firebase tour
4) Setting and Pushing data
5) receiving events
5) Consuming and Sending events using REST API
6) Programatically add new items to the Chat window
6) What about XSS
Basically, the whole idea is to have a central location solely dedicated to sharing and finding quick code snippets for emberjs.
* Looping over an array in your template* Linking to a route in your template* Creating nested routes* Creating a custom helper with momentjs* Redirecting a route to another before it is loaded* Boilerplate for creating a view
This tutorial is about creating a Single Page Application using Backbone and performing database CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) operations using ASP.NET Web API as a RESTful service.

I have been working in a prototype using the Twitter Streaming API with Socket.io and ReactJS for the frontend, Node.js in the backend, cool stuff!
I used several articles as a reference, the one using the streaming API using socket.io(but AngularJS and ntwitter npm package), real-time django using node.js and socket.io or a modern python stack for a real time web application.
In the end as I said I used nodejs, the twit package and socket.io in the backend. With all these tools was incredibly easy to have something running fast.
And these are the different parts composing the example, the installation of the different tools is beyond the scope of this article just because I want to focus more in functionality and I don't want the article to be very long.
Anyway if you have a question/criticism here I am. :-)

The basic angular-localize directive is used by adding the localize attribute to a tag. The text in the element will be used as the translation key, but you can uselocalize="key" to specify the key instead, which is useful if the final content hasn’t yet been copy edited.
The localize directive also observes data-* attributes and passes them as objects to translation functions, so data can be inserted into text dynamically.

Reusable web components in glorious isolation
Polymer lets you create your own <HTML>tags in complete isolation from what the rest of the web page is doing. The result is rock-solid, reusable code that just works™. Learn how to get the most out of this exciting new platform.
As web application complexity spirals out of control, next generation browser features that cut through the craziness remain out of reach.What if you could use next generation features today?
Today it’s possible for us to author in ES6 and transpile our sources down to ES5 at build-time, regardless of whether we’re using Grunt, Gulp or Broccoli. With projects like Ember and Angular looking to ES6 as part of their roadmaps too (Ember App Kit already supports ES6 modules!), now is a great time to learn how ES6 can be used in practice.
In this guide, we’ll re-write the well known TodoMVC application (implemented withBackbone.js) using ECMAScript 6 language semantics. The implementation is made possible using Google’s Traceur compiler and ES6-Module-Loader.
