Starting a project with Express, node.js and Stylus

29/2/2012

Node.js gets a lot of attention lately, out of curiosity I decided to try it out. After reading the excellent hands-on node e-book I wanted to port one of my pet projects, a price comparer between different IKEA branches (site is offline) written in ASP.Net MVC to node.js. As a web framework I went for Express. In this blog post I’ll show you how you can get Express to generate a very basic app for you and how you can use Stylus in combination with Express.

Finally found what I have been looking for: JavaScriptMVC

22/6/2009

I’m very passionate about the code I write, and with the coming of jQuery I really began to love Javascript. But the Javascript I wrote was more of the procedural kind. I tried to split it up per page or user control but it still felt bad. For pages with a lot of interaction the JavaScript files grew very quickly over a couple hundred LOC. There is the possibility to split these up, but the problem that then arises is that the browser launches a request for each javascript file. And most (older) browsers have a suprising low amount of simultaneous request (I thought it was around 2 or 3, it was certainly below 5). So each file I added to make my application more maintainable resulted in a slower application. Not a good situation to be in.

Book review: jQuery in Action

6/6/2009

started reading this book about 6 months ago. After reading it half way through I stopped and start reading a newly purchased book. The reason that I stopped reading was because I was excited and impatient to start reading the new book, it’s a problem I have every time I purchase a new book. After finishing some books I realized that jQuery in Action was still lying around, and because the new project I’m working on depends heavily on jQuery, I decided to pick up the book where I left off and finish it.
