Mastering TypeScript - Fourth Edition

By: Nathan Rozentals

Overview of this book

TypeScript is both a language and a set of tools to generate JavaScript, designed by Anders Hejlsberg at Microsoft to help developers write enterprise-scale JavaScript. Mastering Typescript is a golden standard for budding and experienced developers. With a structured approach that will get you up and running with Typescript quickly, this book will introduce core concepts, then build on them to help you understand (and apply) the more advanced language features. You’ll learn by doing while acquiring the best programming practices along the way. This fourth edition also covers a variety of modern JavaScript and TypeScript frameworks, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. You'll explore Angular, React, Vue, RxJs, Express, NodeJS, and others. You'll get up to speed with unit and integration testing, data transformation, serverless technologies, and asynchronous programming. Next, you’ll learn how to integrate with existing JavaScript libraries, control your compiler options, and use decorators and generics. By the end of the book, you will have built a comprehensive set of web applications, having integrated them into a single cohesive website using micro front-end techniques. This book is about learning the language, understanding when to apply its features, and selecting the framework that fits your real-world project perfectly.

Micro Front-ends

In recent years, the programming community has been exploring and implementing micro services architecture. The goal of this architecture is to split up monolithic applications into smaller-sized chunks, such that a group of smaller services now work together to provide application functionality. The benefit of doing things this way centers around the idea that each micro service can be independently deployed, can have a completely independent build and release cycle, and multiple copies of these services can be easily spun up to provide scaling capabilities. Each micro service becomes independent of any others, and can therefore use its own choice of technology stack, deployment pipeline, and testing regime. A micro service can also evolve its functionality over time, without impacting other services, as it is an independent unit that does a particular job within a larger community of services.

An extension of the micro-services architecture is the concept of...
