Overview of this book

This book is a complete guide to server-side app development in Fastify, written by the core contributors of this highly performant plugin-based web framework. Throughout the book, you’ll discover how it fosters code reuse, thereby improving your time to market. Starting with an introduction to Fastify’s fundamental concepts, this guide will lead you through the development of a real-world project while providing in-depth explanations of advanced topics to prepare you to build highly maintainable and scalable backend applications. The book offers comprehensive guidance on how to design, develop, and deploy RESTful applications, including detailed instructions for building reusable components that can be leveraged across multiple projects. The book presents guidelines for creating efficient, reliable, and easy-to-maintain real-world applications. It also offers practical advice on best practices, design patterns, and how to avoid common pitfalls encountered by developers while building backend applications. By following these guidelines and recommendations, you’ll be able to confidently design, implement, deploy, and maintain an application written in Fastify, and develop plugins and APIs to contribute to the Fastify and open source communities.

Conventions used

There are a number of text conventions used throughout this book.

Code in text: Indicates code words in text, database table names, folder names, filenames, file extensions, pathnames, dummy URLs, user input, and Twitter handles. Here is an example: “The getSchemas() method returns a JSON key-value pair where the key is the schema’s $id and the value is the JSON schema itself.”

A block of code is set as follows:

  "id": 1,
  "name": "Foo",
  "hobbies": [ "Soccer", "Scuba" ]

When we wish to draw your attention to a particular part of a code block, the relevant lines or items are set in bold:

"test": "tap --before=test/run-before.js test/**/**.test.js --after=test/run-after.js --no-check-coverage",
"test:coverage": "tap --coverage-report=html --before=test/run-before.js test/**/**.test.js --after=test/run-after.js",

Any command-line input or output is written as follows:

<absolute URI>#<local fragment>

Bold: Indicates a new term, an important word, or words that you see onscreen. For instance, words in menus or dialog boxes appear in bold. Here is an example: “It is crucial to keep in mind that you should take care of the response status code when you implement your error handler; otherwise, it will be 500 – Server Error by default.”
