ES Modules in Node.js: The Status Quo

Nearly every programming language provides the ability to split the code that makes up a program into multiple files. The #include directive is used for this purpose in C and C ++, while Java and Python have the import keyword. JavaScript was one of the few exceptions up till now, but the new JavaScript standard (ECMAScript 6) changes this by introducing so-called ECMAScript modules. All major browsers already support this new standard – only Node.js seems to be lagging behind. Why is that?

Why you should use date-fns for manipulating dates with JavaScript

Issues related to working with dates are as old of a problem as it gets with JavaScript. In theory it is possible to perform date calculations with JavaScript’s date object, if it weren’t for the many weaknesses of the API. Fortunately, there are helpful libraries that can save us a lot of work. One of them is date-fns.

TypeScript versus JS++: JavaScript typing done right!

Roger Poon started JS++ eight years ago with a deep understanding of corner cases that he doesn’t believe the TypeScript team can rival. This is why Roger believes JS++ is the better option whether you need to write a simple library or if you need backwards compatibility with a large, complex, legacy enterprise codebase. Let’s have a closer look at it!

Implementing cross-cutting concerns with Angular

Cross-cutting concerns are these annoying, mostly technical requirements that have to be considered time and time again for things like authentication, logging, or error treatment. Of course, no one wants to have to repeat method calls necessary for these all the time. Ideally, they are activated automatically. In this article, I will demonstrate three different Angular mechanisms that make this possible in an elegant way: Guards, HTTP Interceptors, and Directives. All of the examples shown can be found in the GitHub repository [1].

Build, Test and Deployment with Angular and GitLab CI

Using a continuous integration (CI) server for backend systems has been an established best practice for a very long time. As the complexity and the scope of modern web frontends increases, so does the need for professional development techniques. This includes working with test-driven development, CI servers, and automated processes. In this article, we will use an example of Angular and GitLab CI to see how build automation can be implemented.

Web Components & Micro Apps: Angular, React & Vue peacefully united?

Angular, React, Vue or some other framework: Which one are you going to use on your next project? The JavaScript ecosystem offers so many choices and all of them have their pros and cons for any given project, making it difficult to choose just one. But there is a solution to that: With micro apps and web components, you can use whatever works best for any single part of your project.

STAY TUNED!
