HTML5 Geolocation API with Google Maps

I have been reading Head First HTML5 and read about the Geolocation support in HTML5 and also went through the example they have shared about using the Google Maps with HTML5 geolocation API. It was an interesting example and I went a step further and enhanced the example to show some eat outs around the current location. For this I ...

Why should we use server side in Backbone.js?

One of the challenges when building nontrivial Web applications is that JavaScript’s non-directive nature can initially lead to a lack of structure in your code. JavaScript is often written as a free-hanging and unrelated blocks of code, and it doesn’t take long before it becomes hard to make sense of the logic and organization of your own code.

Developing stateless (session-less) web apps

Almost all of the web apps we build nowadays (at least on the circles I usually move around) rely on the beloved and hated session. This artifact, providing a stateful user wide storage, allows us to relate several HTTP requests together and thus implement the concept of authenticated and secure web applications, that “know” who is using them several requests ...

Multi module JavaScript project with Grunt

Writing blog post how I managed to configure multi module JavaScript project with Grunt for my spare time project. It is using Protractor for end-to-end testing, but I believe that this multi module approach would be easily portable onto non-Angular stack. In my spare time I work on pet project based on EAN stack (Express, Angular, Node.JS). (Project doesn’t need ...

Boot your ajax app: Creating a splash screen with NProgress

While single-page JavaScript apps tend to be more dynamic and usually more interactive from the user point of view, they also most often have a longer startup time compared to more classic, server-side rendered apps. That’s usually where progress indicators and splash screens come into play. Obviously, the focus should clearly lie in optimizing the startup time to the maximum ...
