    Build a Complete MVC Website With ExpressJSExpressjs adv tut retina preview
    In this article we'll be building a complete website with a front-facing client side, as well as a control panel for managing the site's content. As you may guess, the final working version of the application contains a lot of different files. I wrote this tutorial step by step, following the development process, but I didn't include every single file, as that would make this a very long and boring read. However, the source code is available on GitHub and I strongly recommend that you take a look.Read More…

    Going Live With NodeGoing live with node retina preview
    In my previous article I talked about my joy of discovering the Express framework. Express is what makes me feel like I could really build something with Node and have fun doing it. And in fact - I did that! I built some sample web apps and had a lot of fun. But eventually I decided it was time to buckle down and get serious. I liked Node, I loved Express, and if I was really going to commit to learning it, then why not take the final step and actually create a real website using it. Another thing I learned early on during my Node education (Nodacation?) was that having to stop and restart a Node app was a real pain in the rear. I had great success using Nodemon by Remy Sharp. It will notice updates to your code and restart your Node app automatically. This sounds trivial I suppose, but for me my entire experience with Node was at the command line. I'd simply run node app and test away on port 3000. I really didn't know what it involved to get that same application up and running on a real server and responding to a domain. In this article I'll describe two different attempts I made to move a Node app into production. Obviously there's more ways (and look for more articles here at Nettuts+!) so keep in mind this is what I tried and had success with. Read More…

    Integrating a JS Build Process Into MSBuild in Visual Studio 2012 ExpressMsbuild retina preview
    I've been working with ASP and ASP.NET for about ten years now, starting with ASP classic and settling on .NET 2.0 as my favorite. My new year resolution this year (2013) was to upgrade my .NET work to .NET 4.0 using Visual Studio 2012 Express and really get to grips with MSBuild, so that I can concatenate and minify my JavaScript files as part of the normal build process of a .NET project, in Visual Studio. My first love is to use Ant in NetBeans with a PHP or JSP platform for this kind of work, but my company's main website runs on a .NET platform and it's time to update it, so I decided to bite the bullet and dive back in to some serious study of creating a fully integrated build process using MSBuild. This tutorial will show you how to edit your Visual Studio 2012 Express project file to include your own separate build file which will perform the now widely familiar process of concatenating and minifying a set of JavaScript modules into one file ready for deployment.
