Advanced TypeScript Programming Projects

Book description

Gain in-depth knowledge of TypeScript and the latest ECMAScript standards by building robust web applications across different domains

Key Features

  • Apply the cutting-edge features of TypeScript 3.0 to build high-performance, maintainable applications
  • Learn through practical examples of using TypeScript with popular frameworks, such as Angular and React
  • Focus on building high-quality applications that are modular, scalable and adaptable

Book Description

With the demand for ever more complex websites, the need to write robust, standard-compliant JavaScript has never been greater. TypeScript is modern JavaScript with the support of a first-class type system, which makes it simpler to write complex web systems. With this book, you'll explore core concepts and learn by building a series of websites and TypeScript apps.

You’ll start with an introduction to TypeScript features that are often overlooked in other books, before moving on to creating a simple markdown parser. You'll then explore React and get up to speed with creating a client-side contacts manager. Next, the book will help you discover the Angular framework and use the MEAN stack to create a photo gallery. Later sections will assist you in creating a GraphQL Angular Todo app and then writing a Socket.IO chatroom. The book will also lead you through developing your final Angular project which is a mapping app. As you progress, you'll gain insights into React with Docker and microservices. You'll even focus on how to build an image classification program with machine learning using TensorFlow. Finally, you'll learn to combine TypeScript and C# to create an ASP.NET Core-based music library app.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to confidently use TypeScript 3.0 and different JavaScript frameworks to build high-quality apps.

What you will learn

  • Discover how to use TypeScript to write code using common patterns
  • Get to grips with using popular frameworks and libraries with TypeScript
  • Leverage the power of both server and client using TypeScript
  • Learn how to apply exciting new paradigms such as GraphQL and TensorFlow
  • Use popular cloud-based authenticated services
  • Combine TypeScript with C# to create ASP.NET Core applications

Who this book is for

This book is for programmers and web developers who are familiar with TypeScript and want to put their knowledge to work by building real-world complex applications. Prior experience with any other web framework is not required.
