How to build powerful REST APIs blazingly fast with Node.js

  • the king ofsanity?After working on several projects together, a buddy of mine whos an awesome developer came up with (and implemented) the great idea of generating RESTful endpoints based on our data models.
  • It felt like a DRY API paradise – I knew we were on to something… – The Journey – Soon after we completed that project I started looking into how we could take what we had created and make a useful tool out of it.
  • The developer was forced to design their project around the framework and it still lacked a lot of functionality, even compared to our original solution.
  • Weve been able to pack a lot of useful features into the tool so far including: – Automatic generation of CRUD and association endpoints with middleware support – joi validation – Route-level and document-level authorization – Swagger docs for all generated endpoints – Query parameter support for searching, sorting, filtering,…
  • Check out these examples: – generating endpoints locallyquerying the user collection and populating the user-role relationshipThe goal from the start was to develop a tool that would allow developers to build powerful REST APIs with minimal overhead and I believe we have done that!

Upgrading to Node v8 has significantly reduced our operating costs

  • Node.js v6: A busy cluster shows intermittent spikes across allnodesYet once we completed the upgrade to Node.js v8, with comparable load on the cluster, we see far more predictable performance without the spikes: – Node.js v8: A busy cluster demonstrates consistent even performanceWe can speculate what changes in the underlying…
  • Bang for our buck has vastly improved: circa 40% real worldsaving – When we performed load testing in our lab on Node.js v6 vs Node.js v8, we saw that in the said region, there was a 10% increase in performance.
  • Whilst Google V8s TurboFan and Ignition gave us the ability to increase the rate of operations on the same underlying hardware, the improvements mentioned above (that made the performance more predictably smooth on each node) gave us more confidence in regards to the true spare capacity we had in each…
  • As you can see below, in one of our busier clusters running Node.js v8, we were able to reduce our raw server costs by circa 4050%: – Server usage hours in a single cluster before after Node.jsv8If performance matters, then bet on technology that has the engineering muscle and drive…
  • Lines of code added/deleted from V8 engine repository eachweekWeve made similar bets with other technologies weve chosen, which also have a large group of contributors focused not just on features, but also on continuous performance optimizations such as: – gRPC for our RPC layer (again sponsored by Google) – Cassandra…

Building RESTful Web APIs with Node.js, Express, MongoDB and TypeScript — Part 1

  • Building RESTful Web APIs with Node.js, Express, MongoDB and TypeScriptPart1 – (Image from OctoPerf)There is a course about how to build a Web APIs on Lynda, but they didnt use TypeScript.
  • Im appreciated that;) – Part 1: Setting Up Project – Part 2: Implement routing and CRUD – Part 3: Using Controller and Model for Web APIs – Part 4: Connect Web APIs to MongoDB or others – Part 5: Security for our Web APIs – Bonus: Building a Serverless RESTful…
  • Remember to answer all the question, and you can edit it any time after that – mkdir node-apis-project – cd node-apis-project – npm init Step 2: Install all the dependencies – npm install –save @types/express express body-parser mongoose nodemonStep 3: Configure the TypeScript configuration file – The idea is to…
  • js, – prod: npm run build npm run start – }So, for the development, we can run a test server by running – npm run devFor production – npm run prodStep 5: getting started with the base configuration – You will need sooner or later the package body-parse for parsing…
  • /app; – const PORT = 3000; – – app.listen(PORT, () = { – console.log(‘Express server listening on port ‘ + PORT); – })From now, although you can not send a HTTP request yet, you still can test the project by running npm run dev.

Developing SSG using Node: ES6

  • Before we create couple of more programs in Node and started to implement SSG, I want you to show you couple of new syntax that we are going to use while developing Node program and these new syntax is the part of ES6 JavaScript standard.
  • Now, let’s use the arrow function notation by updating this program.
  • And confirming the output as, – – arrow function is the new way to write the function in JavaScript and it is always good to learn new syntax for the sake of future support and fear of deprecation.
  • One more thing about arrow function, If you are writing a standalone function as, – – Then you can’t use the arrow notation with it unless you redefine this function as variable like we did in our program.
  • A static site generator is a program that produce a pure HTML web site that can run on any server that support HTML web pages to serve.
