Heroes Angular Serverless

TypeScript Node/Express 👉TypeScript Serverless Angular

This project was created to help represent a fundamental app written with Node Express APIs and TypeScript that can be shifted to Serverless Functions with TypeScript.

The client app is Angular, however it could just as easily be Vue or React. The heroes and villains theme is used throughout the app.

by John Papa

Comparative client apps written with Vue and React can be found at at github.com/johnpapa/heroes-vue and github.com/johnpapa/heroes-react

Why

I love Node and Express for creating APIs! These require a server and paying for that server in the cloud. Shifting to serverless alleviates the cost, the server upkeep, helps scale up and down easily, and reduces the surface area of the middleware required for a robust Express app. Is it perfect? No, of course not! But this is a solid option if these factors affect you.

Prerequisites

Make a copy of the env.example file named .env, in the root of the project. It should contain the following code.

.env

NODE_ENV=development
PORT=7070
WWW=./

Getting Started

  1. Clone this repository

    git clone https://github.com/johnpapa/express-to-functions.git
    cd express-to-functions
  2. Install the npm packages

    npm install

Build and Serve Dev

  1. Build the Node Express and the Angular code

    npm run full-stack:build
  2. Run the app

    npm run full-stack:dev

Build and Serve Production

  1. Build the Node Express and the Angular code

    npm run full-stack:build
  2. Run the app

    npm run node:start

Debug Node Express and Angular

  1. Open proxy.conf.json and change the port to 7070

  2. Open the VS Code Command Palette F1

  3. Type View: Show Debug and press ENTER

  4. Select Debug Express and Angular

  5. Press F5

  6. Open the browser to http://localhost:7070

You may now set break points in the Express and Angular code.

Debug Functions and Angular

  1. Open proxy.conf.json and change the port to 7071

  2. Open the VS Code Command Palette F1

  3. Type View: Show Debug and press ENTER

  4. Select Debug Functions and Angular

  5. Press F5

  6. Open the browser to http://localhost:7071

You may now set break points in the Functions and Angular code.
