Building Enterprise JavaScript Applications

By: Daniel Li

Overview of this book

With the over-abundance of tools in the JavaScript ecosystem, it's easy to feel lost. Build tools, package managers, loaders, bundlers, linters, compilers, transpilers, typecheckers - how do you make sense of it all? In this book, we will build a simple API and React application from scratch. We begin by setting up our development environment using Git, yarn, Babel, and ESLint. Then, we will use Express, Elasticsearch and JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) to build a stateless API service. For the front-end, we will use React, Redux, and Webpack. A central theme in the book is maintaining code quality. As such, we will enforce a Test-Driven Development (TDD) process using Selenium, Cucumber, Mocha, Sinon, and Istanbul. As we progress through the book, the focus will shift towards automation and infrastructure. You will learn to work with Continuous Integration (CI) servers like Jenkins, deploying services inside Docker containers, and run them on Kubernetes. By following this book, you would gain the skills needed to build robust, production-ready applications.

Lastly, let's go into our remote server and deploy our documentation site. We do this by pulling in our changes and installing the dependencies.

$ ssh [email protected]
hobnob@hobnob:$ cd projects/hobnob/
hobnob@hobnob:$ git fetch --all
hobnob@hobnob:$ git reset --hard origin/master
hobnob@hobnob:$ yarn

Next, we'll also need to generate a new set of keys and set the SWAGGER_UI_* environment variables inside the .env file:


Then, run the docs:update script to generate the static files which would be served by NGINX. To give NGINX access to these files, we should also update the owner and group of the docs directory to nginx:

hobnob@hobnob:$ yarn run docs:update
hobnob@hobnob:$ sudo chown -R nginx:nginx ./docs/*

Then, restart the API server:

hobnob@hobnob:$ npx pm2 delete 0
hobnob@hobnob:$ yarn run serve

After this, add a new virtual host definition at /etc/nginx/sites...
