Overview of this book

The MEAN stack is a collection of the most popular modern tools for web development that helps you build fast, robust, and maintainable web applications. Starting with the MEAN core frameworks, this pragmatic guide will explain the key concepts of each framework, how to set them up properly, and how to use popular modules to connect it all together. By following the real-world examples shown in this tutorial, you will scaffold your MEAN application architecture, add an authentication layer, and develop an MVC structure to support your project development. You will learn the best practices of maintaining clear and simple code and will see how to avoid common pitfalls. Finally, you will walk through the different tools and frameworks that will help expedite your daily development cycles. Watch how your application development grows by learning from the only guide that is solely orientated towards building a full, end-to-end, real-time application using the MEAN stack!

In this chapter, you learned how to test your MEAN application. You learned about testing in general and the common TDD/BDD testing paradigms. You then used the Mocha test framework and created controller and model unit tests, where you utilized different assertion libraries. Then, we discussed the methods of testing Angular, where you learned the difference between unit and E2E testing. We then proceeded to unit test your Angular application using the Jasmine test framework and the Karma test runner. Then, you learned how to create and run E2E tests using Protractor. Once you've built and tested your real-time MEAN application, in the next chapter, you'll learn how to improve your development-cycle time using some popular automation tools.
