Node.js Web Development.. - Fifth Edition

By: David Herron

Overview of this book

Node.js is the leading choice of server-side web development platform, enabling developers to use the same tools and paradigms for both server-side and client-side software. This updated fifth edition of Node.js Web Development focuses on the new features of Node.js 14, Express 4.x, and ECMAScript, taking you through modern concepts, techniques, and best practices for using Node.js. The book starts by helping you get to grips with the concepts of building server-side web apps with Node.js. You’ll learn how to develop a complete Node.js web app, with a backend database tier to help you explore several databases. You'll deploy the app to real web servers, including a cloud hosting platform built on AWS EC2 using Terraform and Docker Swarm, while integrating other tools such as Redis and NGINX. As you advance, you'll learn about unit and functional testing, along with deploying test infrastructure using Docker. Finally, you'll discover how to harden Node.js app security, use Let's Encrypt to provision the HTTPS service, and implement several forms of app security with the help of expert practices. With each chapter, the book will help you put your knowledge into practice throughout the entire life cycle of developing a web app. By the end of this Node.js book, you’ll have gained practical Node.js web development knowledge and be able to build and deploy your own apps on a public web hosting solution.

Using Twitter Bootstrap on the Notes application

Bootstrap is a mobile-first framework consisting of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript code providing a comprehensive set of world-class, responsive web design components. It was developed by engineers at Twitter and then released to the world in August 2011.

The framework includes code to retrofit modern features onto older browsers, a responsive 12-column grid system, and a long list of components (some using JavaScript) for building web applications and websites. It's meant to provide a strong foundation on which to build your application.

Refer to http://getbootstrap.com for more details about Bootstrap.

With this introduction to Bootstrap, let's proceed to set it up.

Setting up Bootstrap

The first step is to duplicate the code you created in the previous chapter. If, for example, you created a directory named chap05/notes, then create one named chap06/notes from the content of chap05/notes.

Now, we need to go about adding Bootstrap...
