Overview of this book

Angular, considered as one of the most popular and powerful frontend frameworks, has undergone a major overhaul to embrace emerging web technologies so that developers can build cutting-edge web applications. This book gives you practical knowledge of building modern full-stack web apps from scratch using Angular with a Laravel Restful back end. The book begins with a thorough introduction to Laravel and Angular and its core concepts like custom errors messages, components, routers, and Angular-cli, with each concept being explained first, and then put into practice in the case-study project. With the basics covered, you will learn how sophisticated UI features can be added using NgBootstrao and a component-based architecture. You will learn to extend and customize variables from Bootstrap CSS framework. You will learn how to create secure web application with Angular and Laravel using token based authentication. Finally, you will learn all about progressive web applications and build and deploy a complete fullstack application using Docker and Docker-compose. By the end of this book, you'll gain a solid understanding of Angular 6 and how it interacts with a Laravel 5.x backend

Application deployment

We have now finished all of the necessary steps to test our application. The tests can be very comprehensive or quite simple; this will depend on the type of approach that you (or your team) choose.

There are many debates about tests within the community. Some people defend the development-oriented tests, such as Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) or Test-Driven Development (TDD).

Again, we will note that the most important thing is that your code, structure, and tests are consistent, regardless of what type of development is adopted.

In this last section, we will look at how we can prepare our application to be published in production. From the beginning of this book, we have been using Docker, and we would not finish the book in any other way.

So, let's look at how we can prepare our application, using some Docker features.
