  3. Clean Architecture - A sample Node.js application demonstrating the implementation of Clean Architecture principles like separation of concerns and testability.

    GitHub logo panagiop / node.js-clean-architecture

    A use case of Clean Architecture in Node.js comprising of Express.js, MongoDB and Redis as the main (but replaceable) infrastructure.

    node.js-clean-architecture

    A use case of Clean Architecture in Node.js comprising of Express.js, MongoDB and Redis as the main (but replaceable) infrastructure.

    Overview

    This example is a simple RESTful API application in which a user can create / update / delete / find a post, by using the Clean Architecture.

    The objective of Clean Architecture by Robert C. Martin is the separation of concerns in software This separation is achieved by dividing the software into layers. Each layer is encapsulated by a higher level layer and the way to communicate between the layers is with the Dependency Rule.

    Dependency Rule

    This rule says that nothing in an inner circle can know anything at all about something in an outer circle. The dependency direction is from the outside in. Meaning that the Entities layer is independent and the Frameworks & Drivers layer (Web, UI, DB etc.) depends on all the…

  4. RealWorld - Collection of sample applications in different frameworks showcasing backend implementations and best practices.

    "The mother of all demo apps" — Exemplary fullstack Medium.com clone powered by React, Angular, Node, Django, and many more

    RealWorld Example Applications

    See how the exact same Medium.com clone (called Conduit) is built using different frontends and backends. Yes, you can mix and match them, because they all adhere to the same API spec 😮😎

    While most "todo" demos provide an excellent cursory glance at a framework's capabilities, they typically don't convey the knowledge & perspective required to actually build real applications with it.

    RealWorld solves this by allowing you to choose any frontend (React, Angular, & more) and any backend (Node, Django, & more) and see how they power a real-world, beautifully designed full-stack app called Conduit.

    Read the full blog post announcing RealWorld on Medium.
