Express.js is the most popular Node.js web framework yet. As of this writing (September of 2013), there are no books that are solely dedicated to it. Its official website has bits of insights for advanced Node.js programmers. However, I found that many people -- including those who go through HackReactor7 program and come to my Node.js classes at General Assembly and pariSOMA -- are interested in a comprehensive resource. The one that would cover all the different components of Express.js work together in a real production-like application. The goal of Express.js Guide is to become such resource.

What This Book is

Express.js Guide is a concise book on one particular library. This book contains Express.js API 3.3.58 description, the best practices on code organization and patterns, real-world examples of web apps. The topics include but not limited to middleware, command-line interface and scaffolding, ren- dering templates, extracting params from dynamic URLs, parsing payloads and cookies, managing authentication with sessions, error handling and prepping apps for production.

For more details and for what exactly the book covers, please refer to the Table of Contents.

What This Book is Not

This book is not an introduction to Node.js, nor is it a book that covers all aspects of building a modern day web application, e.g., websockets, databases and (of course) front-end development.

Keep in mind that readers also won't find in Express.js Guide a resource for learning programming and/or JavaScript fundamentals.

You might want to take a look at Rapid Prototyping with JS9 for the introduction to Node.js, MongoDB and front-end development with Backbone.js.

In the real-world and especially in Node.js development, due to its modularized philosophy, we seldom use just a single framework. In the book, we have tried to stick only to Express.js and leave everything else out as much as possible, without compromising the usefulness of examples. Therefore, we intentionally left out some important chunks of web developments, for example databases, authentication and testing. Although these elements are present in tutorials and examples, they're not explained in detail. For those materials, you could check books in the Related Reading and Resources section at the end of the book.

Who This Book is For

This book is for people fluent in programming and front-end JavaScript. In addition, to get the most benefits, readers must be familiar with basic Node.js concepts like process and global, and know core modules, including streams, clusters and buffer type.
If you're thinking of starting a Node.js app, or of rewriting an existing one, and your weapon of choice is Express.js -- this guide is for you! It will answer most of your "how" and "why" questions.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Part II is not very useful. 22. Mai 2014
Von Enrique Pineda - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
(This is an edit to my original review, upgrading the rating from 2 to 3 stars.)

What I liked about this book is that it is just about ExpressJS -- not an attempt to show readers how to integrate with other technologies (e.g. the MEAN stack). I needed to review Express independently of other technologies, and the GUIDE seems to do that well.

Part 1 provides a compelling argument for why Express is a good framework for NodeJS. It moves along at a reasonable pace, illustrating to the reader the benefits without waxing poetic.

Part 2 was a bit of a turn-off. Without meaningful explanation for the features listed in this section of the book, the examples really didn't do anything to improve my understanding of this material. The section struck me as filler to fatten the book up. The publisher should have worked with the writer more closely in editing this section to make it more compelling to read. In general, the frequency of forward-looking statements (i.e. "this to be explained later") became distracting to the point of my flipping through pages to skip such content.

Software documentation is readily available online nowadays. The success of a programming book is critically dependent on the author's ability to (a) shed light where online resources cannot, and (b) make the material entertaining enough to keep the reader engaged.

I never made it to Part 3. I am re-attempting this book, so those of you who read this may want to stay tuned for an updated review from me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The single best place to start with Express.js 11. Januar 2014
Von Stefan Christian Ritter - Veröffentlicht auf
Express is great, but considering it's the most used framework on Node.js the lack of a thorough documentation and the lack of proper tutorials is stunning.

I found this book the best, most comprehensive guide to Express by far.

I am coming from a Rails background, so wrapping your head around middleware and setting up the configuration right, was very new to me as Rails takes care of all those things - for good and worse.

The guide explained middleware finally in a clear and straight forward manor, to the point that I am now almost annoyed with Rails' convention over configuration approach.

The book is built around a heap of great examples, and is structured in a really helpful and methodological breakdown of the main components that make up an Express.js app.

There are here and there some typos, but that is to be expected from a self published book (couldn't imagine myself writing error free), but most importantly they didn't distract me from the great content at all.

What the book is missing, I feel, is a bit more on security (I'd recommend Node.js Security by Dominic Barnes for a quick intro) and a bit more on testing (I'd recommend Node.js in Action for a good breakdown of testing frameworks).

That said, I think this is the simply the single best resource and place to start with Express.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great resource for learning ExpressJS & NodeJS 22. Dezember 2013
Von Nader Dabit - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
As someone experienced in JavaScript but new to Node, Express seemed like the way to go after getting my feet wet with basic NodeJS books and tutorials... ExpressJS Guide was my first book on ExpressJS, and I was easily able to follow along and wrap my head around the framework within a short amount of time and had my first app built within a few weeks of finishing the book. It is also a great reference to keep on hand whenever I stumbled upon an issue while building my app.. This book along with a few tutorials online should be all that you need to get going with Express and NodeJS, along with basic JavaScript knowledge of course. Bottom line, I would recommend this book to anyone looking to learn NodeJS and ExpressJS.

4.0 von 5 Sternen There is valuable information, but be prepared to work for it 4. Dezember 2013
Von Ryan Lelek - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really wanted to like this book.
But, the many, MANY typographical errors make it hard to enjoy.

I'm 7 chapters into the book (there are over 30, relatively short and focused).
There certainly is valuable information to be learned here, but it will take effort on your part.
Two major flaws:

#1) The typographical errors wreck the "flow" of the reading by being distracting.
I have to re-read sentences because I think I missed some words, and that keeps me away from focusing on the concepts.
These errors are not misplaced commas or something minor that can be overlooked, these errors wreck the flow.
It's hard to explain, but once you read the Kindle sample, you'll get a feel for what I mean.

#2) It's written from a developer mindset.
You might think this is a good thing, considering this is a "coding" book aimed at developers.
Maybe it is, but having developed a few apps in Express, I've encountered multiple parts of the book where you're told to "use this module!" with little explanation.
The author is correct, I'd also recommend you "use this module!" but I could see people new to Express not quite understanding what we're using or why we're using it.

A specific example that happened twice so far: terminal output.
You're told to execute a command and note the image of the terminal code output.
Instead of explaining what happened in the terminal, it's up to you to interpret the screenshot to see what happened.
Overall, there's just a lot of hopping around and it might take some time to connect the dots.

Bottom Line:
*** Buy the Kindle Version ***
At the Kindle price, this could be a one-time quick-fix for you to power through without much worry.
The paperback version is ~3x the cost of the Kindle, and is not worth it in my opinion.
I bought this book because it's self published and I like supporting the practitioners that are on the front lines.
Granted, I probably could have seen my criticisms coming, but at the Kindle price, you can't really go wrong.

That's my review and I'm sticking to it :)

Suggestions to the author:
- Please find someone to edit the book so readers can enjoy the lessons you have to share. Happy to work with you on this (I'm in the Bay area)
- (minor) Perhaps focus more on the "why" instead of the "how" - there are many ways to do something, but what's the reasoning behind doing it this one way?
Best practice that's expected by the community? Performance increase? Security strategy? Etc.
- Keeping up with matching new versions of Express and other modules will be tedious, but I'd recommend this book to anyone in a heartbeat if I knew it is always nearly up to date.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book for getting up to speed with express 28. April 2014
Von Tony Brown - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Express is my favorite middleware for working with Nodejs.
It reminds me of Sinatra, another favorite of mine for building quick web apps and API's
The book gives some excellent examples to show you how to use express in real world examples.
I recommend to anyone wishing to get up and running with this awesome framework for Node
