In this chapter, we built a simple blog by writing the backend of the application in Node.js. The module for database communication, which we wrote, can work with the MongoDB or MySQL database and store articles. The client-side part and the control panel of the blog were developed with AngularJS. We then defined a custom service using the built-in HTTP and routing mechanisms.

Node.js works well with AngularJS, mainly because both are written in JavaScript. We found out that AngularJS is built to support the developer. It removes all those boring tasks such as DOM element referencing, attaching event listeners, and so on. It's a great choice for the modern client-side coding stack.

In the next chapter, we will see how to program a real-time chat with Socket.IO, one of the popular solutions covering the WebSockets communication.
