Starting your next Javascript project can be frustrating or overwhelming when you have to set up your local development environment. The most of the new Javascript techniques and frameworks are dependent on node and NPM. Especially when you want to create a tutorial, blog post or prepare a workshop. The setup for each type of operating system can take to much time and your audience can lose the focus on the message you are trying to send. For this problem, CodeSandbox can help you out! On codesandbox.io you can start your next project with just one click and demonstrate, experiment or build cool stuff.

Extending Selenium with page objects

As all who have used it know Selenium is a powerful tool when testing front-end applications. I personally use it in combination with protractor. This is because most of the work I do is with Angular and AngularJS applications. When you are using Typescript extending classes is an easy thing. In light of this I’ve been experimenting with new approaches to creating page objects.

Angular2 and Spring Boot: Getting Started

Posted on by  
Jeroen Bruinink

Combining Angular2 and Spring Boot is a great way of getting up and running quickly with a new web application. However, it can be challenging to fit all the different pieces together in the beginning. In this blog post we will create a new project that is easy to build and run across different environments. The goal is to create a minimal, but runnable, application with as little dependencies and setup as possible. You can then start expanding the application however you see fit. We will create the Angular2 application using angular-cli. This allows us to easily generate a new project with a clear structure. This will also make it easy to add new elements to our Angular2 application. When adding new elements with angular-cli, we will maintain the same structure and wire the new elements together automatically. Angular-cli is an npm module, so it requires Node and npm to install and run. Make sure to install a recent version of both of these applications before continuing with the steps below. We will use Maven as the overall build manager for our application. The steps should be easy to follow and will not require a lot of work. However, you can get the result directly in this GitHub repository if you want to. There is a seperate commit for every step.
