A Blueprint for Production-Ready Web Applications

By: Dr. Philip Jones

Overview of this book

A Blueprint for Production-Ready Web Applications will help you expand upon your coding knowledge and teach you how to create a complete web application. Unlike other guides that focus solely on a singular technology or process, this book shows you how to combine different technologies and processes as needed to meet industry standards. You’ll begin by learning how to set up your development environment, and use Quart and React to create the backend and frontend, respectively. This book then helps you get to grips with managing and validating accounts, structuring relational tables, and creating forms to manage data. As you progress through the chapters, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of web application development by creating a to-do app, which can be used as a base for your future projects. Finally, you’ll find out how to deploy and monitor your application, along with discovering advanced concepts such as managing database migrations and adding multifactor authentication. By the end of this web development book, you’ll be able to apply the lessons and industry best practices that you’ve learned to both your personal and work projects, allowing you to further develop your coding portfolio.

Building the Single-Page App

In the previous chapter, we extended a basic React app with the tooling and setup that we require to build user interfaces. This means that in this chapter, we can focus on the functionality that will make up our single-page app. Specifically, we’ll add functionality that allows users to authenticate, manage their passwords, and manage their to-dos.

The user interface and functionality to manage user authentication and passwords is useful to any app and could be used directly in yours. While the to-do user interface is unlikely to match what you require in your own apps, the techniques will be applicable.

So, in this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Adding navigation
  • Adding user authentication pages
  • Adding password management pages
  • Adding to-do pages
