Build a Secure API with Spring Boot and GraphQL

avatar-moksamedia.jpg Andrew Hughes

GraphQL is a data query language developed by Facebook in 2012 to solve a shortcoming of REST APIs and traditional database models. All too often, when programmers write REST API data queries, they default to retrieving entire data structures when they need only a part of it. For example, if you want to find out the number of comments on a blog post, a developer might typically retrieve the entire post and all associated fields...

avatar-krasimir.jpg Krasimir Hristozov

Building a web application isn’t supposed to be drudgery. No developer has ever said “I’d really like to spend two hours configuring webpack and TypeScript this weekend.” You’d rather build cool stuff NOW and spend time thinking about your applications, not the tools you’re forced to use. In a lot of cases the “cool stuff” is a dynamic, fast, secure single-page app. To achieve that, in this tutorial I’ll show you how to get a...

Build a CRUD-y SPA with Node and Angular

avatar-bkelley.jpg Braden Kelley

Even before the release of Angular 6, Angular had gone through some changes over the years. The biggest one was the jump from AngularJS (v1.x) to Angular (v2+), which included a lot of breaking syntax changes and made TypeScript the default language instead of JavaScript. TypeScript is actually a superset of JavaScript, but it allows you to have strongly typed functions and variables, and it will get compiled down to JavaScript so that it can...

Upgrade your ASP.NET Core 2.1 App to Angular 6

With the release of ASP.NET Core, there are several templates in the DotNet CLI.

avatar-pmcdowell.jpg Patrick McDowell

Getting started with CloudFormation can be intimidating, but once you get the hang of it, automating tasks is easy. While CloudFormation might seem like overkill for something as simple as deploying a static site (for example you could just copy HTML files to a S3 bucket using the Amazon Console or from the CLI), if your shop uses continuous integration and you have multiple deployments happening at the same time, it’s more efficient for you...

Spring Boot has dramatically simplified the development of Spring applications. Its autoconfiguration and starter dependencies reduce the amount of code and configuration you need to begin an app. If you were used to Spring and lots of XML back in the day, Spring Boot is a breath of fresh air. Spring Boot was first released in 2014, and a lot has changed since then. Much like code quality and testing, security has become a concern...

avatar-isuta.png Ibrahim Šuta

Even with all the hype around ASP.NET Core, many .NET developers continue to develop applications with ASP.NET 4.x. The ASP.NET 4.X framework is still being developed, and will be supported for a long time to come. It’s a battle-tested web framework that has existed for over 15 years and is supported by a mature ecosystem. On the client side, many developers prefer Angular, and it is outstanding for building enterprise-level, feature rich, applications. The application...

Add Social Login to Your Spring Boot 2.0 App

avatar-moksamedia.jpg Andrew Hughes

We’ve all seen social login. It’s the “Log in with Facebook” or “Log in with Twitter” buttons we see below every username and password field on the Internet. But why do these exist? The primary benefits of social login are ease of use and security. It’s easier for your users to log into your app if they can use credentials they’ve already created on a a service they trust. They don’t have to come up...
