JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight text-based data interchange format used to create objects to transfer data over the Internet. It's widely used today by common web applications, as well as mobile applications.

This book gives you clear ways that you can exchange objects using JSON, regardless of whether you're developing a web or traditional networked application. You'll start with a brief refresher on JSON and JavaScript syntax and read and write on the client and server. Then, you'll learn how to use JSON in simple AJAX applications using AngularJS and jQuery. Next, you will learn how to exchange objects with databases using MongoDB and CouchDB. You'll also explore how to use JSON in a type-safe manner, writing programs that have fewer bugs. more »
Data-oriented Development with AngularJS
AngularJS is one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks used to write single page applications and is suitable for developing large-scale enterprise applications. With Firebase, you can easily store and sync data in real time. It has libraries for all the major web and mobile platforms (including AngularJS) and bindings for the most popular frameworks (such as Node.js).

Data-oriented Development with AngularJS is a systematic learning guide that covers important AngularJS concepts such as data binding, dependency injection, directives, and so on. It also covers the basics of Firebase and three-way data binding with AngularFire. You'll be able to create a small project and build a real-time application using Firebase and AngularJS. This project uses most of the concepts and best practices learned in the book so that you can apply the very same principles in real-world AngularJS development. more »
AngularJS Directives Cookbook
AngularJS directives are at the center of what makes it such an exciting – and important - web development framework. With directives, you can take greater control over HTML elements on your web pages – they ‘direct' Angular's HTML compiler to behave in the way you want it to. It makes building modern web applications a much more expressive experience, and allows you to focus more closely on improving the way that user interaction impacts the DOM and the way your app manages data. If you're already using Angular, you probably recognize the power of directives to transform the way you understand and build your projects – but customizing and creating your own directives to harness AngularJS to its full potential can be more challenging. This cookbook shows you how to do just that – it's a valuable resource that demonstrates how to use directives at every stage in the workflow.

Packed with an extensive range of solutions and tips that AngularJS developers shouldn't do without, you'll find out how to make the most of directives. You'll find recipes demonstrating how to build a number of different user interface components with directives, so you can take complete control over how users interact with your application. You'll also learn how directives can simplify the way you work by creating reusable directives – by customizing them with Yeoman you can be confident that you're application has the robust architecture that forms the bedrock of the best user experiences. You'll also find recipes that will help you learn how to unit test directives, so you can be confident in the reliability and performance of your application. more »
Getting MEAN with Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node
Traditional web dev stacks use a different programming language in every layer, resulting in a complex mashup of code and frameworks. Together, the MongoDB database, the Express and AngularJS frameworks, and Node.js constitute the MEAN stack—a powerful platform that uses only one language, top to bottom: JavaScript. Developers and businesses love it because it's scalable and cost-effective. End users love it because the apps created with it are fast and responsive. It's a win-win-win!

Getting MEAN teaches you how to develop web applications using the MEAN stack. First, you'll create the skeleton of a static site in Express and Node, and then push it up to a live web server. Next, add a MongoDB database and build an API before using Angular to handle data manipulation and application logic in the browser. Finally you'll add an authentication system to the application, using the whole stack. When you finish, you'll have all the skills you need to build a dynamic data-driven web application. more »
Professional AngularJS
Most of the existing guides to AngularJS struggle to provide simple and understandable explanations for more advanced concepts. As a result, some developers who understand all the basic concepts of AngularJS struggle when it comes to building more complex real-world applications. Professional AngularJS provides a thorough understanding of AngularJS, covering everything from basic concepts, such as directives and data binding, to more advanced concepts like transclusion, build systems, and automated integration testing. In addition to explaining the features of AngularJS, this book distills real-world experience on how these features fit together to enable teams to work together more effectively in building extraordinary apps. more »
Material Design implementation with AngularJS
Building web and mobile apps that are interactive, fluid and provide consistent experience across devices ranging from desktops, tablets and smart phones is challenging. User Interface (UI) elements need to adapt to various screen sizes and yet the code behind need to be reusable and follow best of coding practices.

Material Design with AngularJS details out building such sophisticated web and mobile apps by combining Material Design and AngularJS concepts.

Material design takes mobile-first approach. User Interactions are built to be natural with animations, positioning of elements and more.

AngularJS provides many web development features like routing, accessibility, localization etc. out of box. And the framework's implementation of design patters like Dependency Injection, Model View Controller or Model View-View Model will allow better separation of concerns.

This book dwells into following libraries, i) Angular Material- being built by Google team for getting best of the two worlds (Material Design and AngularJS). ii) Ionic Material – library being built to get Material Design to Ionic Framework. It's used for hybrid mobile app development. iii) Material Design Lite, plain vanilla JavaScript, CSS and HTML library – taking advantage of such an approach in AngularJS.
This combination of technologies, Material Design and AngularJS is going to be powerful with Web being a dominant platform and hybrid approach for mobile apps becoming popular every day. The approach is suitable for large enterprise or an individual developer - code once and reuse on multiple platforms and screen sizes. more »
