Full-Stack JavaScript Architecture

Full-Stack JavaScript Architecture

Opinionated project architecture for Full-Stack JavaScript Applications.

About

Using JavaScript for full-stack has always been a challenge especially with architecting various pieces of the application, choosing technologies and managing devOps. This project provides a base for typical project consisting a Landing Website, Web and Mobile Applications, API service and easy deployment of these services. This project uses a microservice architecture where all individual project runs as a service (container).

A typical product (SaaS, etc.) usually consists of following services:

  • Landing page
    • Used for introducing your business to customers
    • Provide links to download the mobile application
    • Provide link to access web application
    • Contact page
    • Privacy policy page
    • Terms of use page
    • SEO friendly (should support server side rendering)
  • Web Application
    • Your actual application for your customers to use
    • Desktop browser
    • Tablet and mobile browser via responsive design
  • Mobile Application
    • Your actual application for your customers to use
    • Android (Mobile/Tablet)
    • iOS (Mobile/Tablet)

  • API

    • Info
      • Authentication strategy: JWT (JSON Web Token)
      • Current implementation uses RPC (Remote Procedure Call) for API endpoints (one endpoint URL, multiple operations) and can be easily replaced with REST.
      • Resources
    • Switch to api directory cd backend/api
    • Configuration
      • Create local environment file cp .env.dev.example .env.local
      • Modify .env.local for

        • LANDING_URL (http://localhost:3000)
        • WEB_URL (http://localhost:5000)
        • API_URL (http://localhost:8000)
        • EMAIL_ON (0 | 1 (in development, you can toggle to send emails or not))
        • EMAIL_TEST (send test emails to this address)
        • EMAIL_HOST, EMAIL_USER, EMAIL_PASSWORD (use any email service, eg. mailgun.com and get credentials to start sending emails

      3. Clone repository git clone [email protected]:atulmy/fullstack-javascript-architecture.git .
      4. Switch to deployment directory cd deployment
      5. Build containers docker-compose up --build -d
        • up = Builds, (re)creates, starts, and attaches to containers for a service.
        • --build = Build images before starting containers
        • -d = Detached mode: Run containers in the background, print new container names
