Overview of this book

React sets the standard for building high-performance client-side web apps. Node.js is a scalable application server that is used in thousands of websites, while GraphQL is becoming the standard way for large websites to provide data and services to their users. Together, these technologies, when reinforced with the capabilities of TypeScript, provide a cutting-edge stack for complete web application development. This book takes a hands-on approach to implementing modern web technologies and the associated methodologies for building full-stack apps. You’ll begin by gaining a strong understanding of TypeScript and how to use it to build high-quality web apps. The chapters that follow delve into client-side development with React using the new Hooks API and Redux. Next, you’ll get to grips with server-side development with Express, including authentication with Redis-based sessions and accessing databases with TypeORM. The book will then show you how to use Apollo GraphQL to build web services for your full-stack app. Later, you’ll learn how to build GraphQL schemas and integrate them with React using Hooks. Finally, you’ll focus on how to deploy your application onto an NGINX server using the AWS cloud. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to build and deploy complete high-performance web applications using React, Node, and GraphQL.

Analyzing the thread points system

Users should be able to tag comments that they like and upvote them. Showing which postings are popular also helps users be more engaged in the communication. In this section, we'll review how we'll enable users to indicate their approval of posts.

To enable this capability, we will include the following features in our app:

  • Points system

    A points system will be created to allow users to upvote or downvote thread postings and responses.

  • Display view count

    Show the number of times a thread post was viewed by users.

  • Display response count

    Show the number of responses a post has to let users know what topics are popular or trending.

In this section, we reviewed how the system is important to enable users to indicate how they feel about certain posts and view the popularity of topics. The points system will enhance user engagement and activity.
