Overview of this book

The MEAN stack is a combination of the most popular web development frameworks available—MongoDB, Angular, Express, and Node.js used together to offer a powerful and comprehensive full stack web development solution. It is the modern day web dev alternative to the old LAMP stack. It works by allowing AngularJS to handle the front end, and selecting Mongo, Express, and Node to handle the back-end development, which makes increasing sense to forward-thinking web developers. The MEAN stack is great if you want to prototype complex web applications. This book will enable you to build a better foundation for your AngularJS apps. Each chapter covers a complete, single, advanced end-to-end project. You’ll learn how to build complex real-life applications with the MEAN stack and few more advanced projects. You will become familiar with WebSockets and build real-time web applications, as well as create auto-destructing entities. Later, we will combine server-side rendering techniques with a single page application approach. You’ll build a fun project and see how to work with monetary data in Mongo. You will also find out how to a build real-time e-commerce application. By the end of this book, you will be a lot more confident in developing real-time, complex web applications using the MEAN stack.

The Auction module

We have taken the initial steps and implemented our services. Now we can start to use them in our components. There are many moving things in our Auction application. The most demanding part of the app will be the auction detail page.

The preceding code will list the details about a specific auction and also list the current bids. When a new bid is placed, it will be pushed to the bids list.

Earlier in our services, we used the Auction model. Let's take a look at it first. It can be found under public/src/auction/auction.model.ts:

import { Money } from '../common/index';

export class Auction {
  _id:            string;
  identifier:     string;
  item:           any;
  startingPrice:  any;
  currentPrice:   any;
  endPrice:       any;
  minAmount:      any;
  bids:           Array<any>;
  status:         string;
  startsAt:       string;
  endsAt:         string;
  createdAt:      string

    _id?:            string,
    item?:           any,
