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.

Unit testing our engine

Next, let's test our create engine function. Like our previous createUser request handler, the src/engines/users/create/index.js module contains two import statements, which makes it difficult to test. Therefore, just like before, we must pull these dependencies out, and import them back into src/index.js:

import createUserValidator from './validators/users/create';
const handlerToValidatorMap = new Map([
  [createUserHandler, createUserValidator],
...'/users', injectHandlerDependencies(createUserHandler, client, handlerToEngineMap, handlerToValidatorMap, ValidationError));

Then, update the injectHandlerDependencies function to inject the validator function into the handler:

function injectHandlerDependencies(
  handler, db, handlerToEngineMap, handlerToValidatorMap, ValidationError,
) {
  const engine = handlerToEngineMap.get(handler);
const validator = handlerToValidatorMap.get(handler);
  return (req, res) => { handler(req, res, db, engine,...
