About this book

Learn everything you need to master the AdonisJs framework, including topics such as interacting with a database, rendering templates, writing asynchronous code, and hosting sites with SSL. Along the way, you’ll see how to build a commerce application, which lists products and allows shoppers to register and purchase those products. The site will feature a product catalog, a shopping cart, user registration and login, and profile management.

The Definitive Guide to AdonisJs also covers how to create a front-end build chain, so that you can use a modern front-end framework, such as React. You’ll discover how to connect your front end to the server, so that data and transactions can be shared between the two. Finally, you’ll see how to secure and deploy the application to a virtual private server, including how to apply for and install an SSL certificate and start accepting payments.

After reading and using this book, you’ll know all you need about AdonisJs. You’ll have the tools to turn that side-project you’ve been thinking about into a real money-making product. It is written by a web expert and reviewed by the AdonisJs project lead. This is the complete start-to-finish guide you’ve been waiting for.
