HE DEAD-SIMPLE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE FOR FRONT-END DEVELOPERS TO GETTING UP AND RUNNING WITH NODE.JS, EXPRESS, JADE, AND MONGODBSET UP THE FULL STACK AND HAVE A WEBPAGE RUNNING IN 30 MINUTES. MAKE IT TALK TO YOUR DB IN ANOTHER 30.
In my experience, the "next level" tutorials out there seem about 30 levels further along. We go from "Hello, World!" to building out an entire blogging system with comments. Which is also great, but a lot of times those tutorials assume the reader has done a whole bunch of intermediate fiddling, and they often drop a bunch of big functions on you all at once. I tend to learn best by making lots of smaller, intermediate steps, and I don't think I'm the only one.
Well, good news, everyone! I've done the fiddling and read a bunch of tutorials and shouted at my command prompt until things finally worked. I have a web project up and running which uses Node.JS, the Express framework, the Jade HTML pre-processor, and MongoDB for data. I can read to and write from the DB. From there, the sky's the limit.
I’m going to take you through my code to create a basic calendar booking application. Starting with building the Node.js API in part one and finishing with the Angular interface in part two. Before I start digging into the code I want it to be mentioned that this is by no means meant to be considered a best practices guide or anything of the sort. I’ve only just started learning Node.js and the following is just the different methodologies I’ve gathered from multiple resources all over the web. If you have see anything that can be improved upon please don’t hesitate to comment below!
Since I’ve always heard great things about the Heroku platform at Dreamforce every year, I figured that would be a great starting place.
I highly recommend working through the Getting Started with Node.js on Heroku guide. It will walk you through setting up your local environment as well as building a basic app with the Node.js and the Express framework.
