Build a Basic CRUD App with Vue.js and Node

avatar-brandon_parise.jpg Brandon Parise

I’ve danced the JavaScript framework shuffle for years starting with jQuery, then on to Angular. After being frustrated with Angular’s complexity, I found React and thought I was in the clear. What seemed simple on the surface ended up being a frustrating mess. Then I found Vue.js. It just felt right. It worked as expected. It was fast. The documentation was incredible. Templating was eloquent. There was a unanimous consensus around how to handle state...

All this is great, but you need continuous deployment and excellent security to ensure your system stays up-to-date, healthy, and safe for years to come. With Spring Security and its OAuth 2.0 support, you have everything...

So, you’re building a custom app and you need to include support for multi-factor authentication (MFA). Did you know that Okta’s API can support multi-step MFA workflows?

Redundancy is a big deal when scaling websites. However, deploying and managing clusters of containers can quickly become untenable.

How to Secure Your .NET Web API with Token Authentication

avatar-leebrandt.jpg Lee Brandt

API security can be complex. In many cases, just because you’ve built an API that you want to make public, it doesn’t mean that you want just anybody accessing it. In most cases, you want fine-grained control over who can access the API, but setting up that kind of user management can be a daunting task: you’d have to create your own authorization service that can create API credentials for your users and have the...

There are hundreds of to-do apps out there, but today I’ll show you how to build your own from scratch. Why? It’s the perfect exercise for learning a new language or framework! A to-do app is more complex than “Hello...

Use Ionic for JHipster to Create Mobile Apps with OIDC Authentication

avatar-matt_raible.jpg Matt Raible

We 💙 Ionic, JHipster, and Java here at Okta. Ionic is a framework for building native mobile apps using web technologies. Technically, this is called a “hybrid” app because it’s not using native SDKs. Hybrid mobile apps are distributed just like native apps: they can be installed on mobile devices, and they’re listed in app stores. As an end user, there’s a good chance you can’t tell the difference between a hybrid mobile app and...

Build Your Own Invoicing Service with Node, Coinbase, Bitcoin, and Okta

avatar-rdegges.jpg Randall Degges

I got into Bitcoin back in 2011. Since then, I’ve been a fan of cryptocurrencies and have always had an interest in them. I’ve also built several Bitcoin projects over the years (an information website, an ecommerce site, and several others) to help promote the usage of the cryptocurrency (while having some fun). The idea of being able to send and receive money almost instantly from anywhere in the world with no middleman is really...
