References to Design Pattern Libraries

When designing and developing software it's always useful to have a reference to common software design patterns handy. Apart from cloud design pattern libraries there are collections of more low-level or more general design patterns, too. These include the classic GoF design patterns and Martin Fowler's Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. Read more

State of JavaScript Survey: 2018 Edition – Criticism from an Angular Perspective

Recently, the results of the 2018 edition of the State of JavaScript survey have been published. As usual, the report comes with handy categories such as front-end, data layer, testing or mobile. While I very much support the idea of creating a yearly survey of the JavaScript landscape and this survey in particular, which I have been supporting since its inception, there's a major issue with this year's edition: In contrast to its previous editions the survey results lump together (or at least the ...

Dinero.js: Working With Monetary Values in JavaScript

Working with monetary values can become a problem in any programming language and JavaScript certainly is no different in that respect. The naïve assumption that monetary values can be expressed as floating point numbers almost inevitably leads to rounding errors caused by precision and the fact that in most cases monetary values are represented as decimal numbers with just two (instead of an undefined number of) decimal places. Apart from that, money is not just a number but usually comprises a currency ... Read more

Jenny Shen: UX Design Across Different Cultures

UX designer Jenny Shen recently has been featured on the Scott Hanselman's podcast with her work on UX design across different cultures. She's published a two-part summary of her experiences with cross-cultural design and internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) of websites and applications: UX Design Across Different Cultures — Part 1 UX Design Across Different Cultures — Part 2 These articles shed light on how distributing an application or publishing a website in another country not only requires translating the content and labels of UI elements but also has ...

Dependency Management for Angular Unit Tests Using TestModuleMetadata

Since its inception it's always been one of the eminent design goals of Angular (and AngularJS before it) to make JavaScript applications easily testable and bake unit and E2E testing right into the development process. While the Angular team certainly has succeeded at this there's still the occasional snag you hit when writing unit or end-to-end tests. For the most part, the testing experience with Angular is terrific and testing JavaScript codebases has come a long way but of course there's always ... Read more

RxJS: Observables, Observers, Subjects …

When developing web applications - or in fact any kind of application that involves interaction via a user interface - we inevitably have to deal with asynchronous events, perhaps even streams of such events, e.g.: mouse clicks asynchronous HTTP calls and subsequent display of data push notifications Because events are such an essential part of both the feature set and the user experience of many, if not even most, user-facing applications frameworks such as Angular treat them as first-class citizens and provide developers with ...

JSON Schema to TypeScript declarations: Keeping Client and Server Models in Sync with Spring Data REST and Typescript

With web applications a separation between client and server is commonplace nowadays: While the server (also often called back-end) deals with the underlying model, data storage and the predominant part of the business logic, the user interface and user-facing behaviour in general is realised with JavaScript, HTML and CSS on the client (also referred to as front-end), i.e. the user's browser. Frequently, frameworks such as Angular are used in order to facilitate development and make code easier to read and generally more ... Read more
