Overview of this book

In the world of web development, leveraging data is the key to developing comprehensive applications, and RESTful APIs help you to achieve this systematically. This book will guide you in designing and developing web services with the power of TypeScript 3 and Node.js. You'll design REST APIs using best practices for request handling, validation, authentication, and authorization. You'll also understand how to enhance the capabilities of your APIs with ODMs, databases, models and views, as well as asynchronous callbacks. This book will guide you in securing your environment by testing your services and initiating test automation with different testing approaches. Furthermore, you'll get to grips with developing secure, testable, and more efficient code, and be able to scale and deploy TypeScript 3 and Node.js-powered RESTful APIs on cloud platforms such as the Google Cloud Platform. Finally, the book will help you explore microservices and give you an overview of what GraphQL can allow you to do. By the end of this book, you will be able to use RESTful web services to create your APIs for mobile and web apps and other platforms.

  1. An object data model (ODM) is a data model based on object-oriented programming that associates methods (procedures) with objects that can benefit from class hierarchies.
  2. In relational databases, you need to define constraints in terms of rows and named columns as well as the type of data that can be stored in each column. On the other hand, a document-oriented database contains documents, which are records that describe the data in the document.
  3. Mongoose is an ODM library for MongoDB and Node.js.
  4. A Mongoose schema is a document data structure (or shape of a document) that is enforced via the application layer.
  5. The ObjectId class is the default primary key for a MongoDB document and is usually found in the _id field in an inserted document.
  6. Docker is a computer program that performs operating-system-level virtualization, also known as containerization.
