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.

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 reminderName string is a string that uniquely identifies the reminder within the scope of the contextual grain.”

A block of code is set as follows:

class APIError(Exception):
    def __init__(self, status_code: int, code: str) -> None:
        self.status_code = status_code
        self.code = code

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

public interface IHotelGrain : IGrainWithStringKey
        <<Code removed for brevity>>
        public Task Subscribe(IObserver observer);
        public Task UnSubscribe(IObserver observer);

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

az monitor app-insights component create --app ai-distel-prod --location westus  --resource-group rg-distel-prod

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: “The Client System sends the batches of messages to the Dispatcher Grain, which enumerates through the batch of messages to dispatch the messages to each target grain.”
