HTML5 and JavaScript Web Apps: Bridging the Gap Between the Web and the Mobile

About this product

Synopsis
HTML5 and JavaScript Web Apps is about building web applications with HTML5 and W3C specifications that are widely supported across all devices and browsers — both mobile and desktop. It focuses on practical, real-world usage of HTML5 and JavaScript in everyday programming. The content is intended for programmers who are facing the challenges of moving more code to the front-end with JavaScript, CSS and HTML while providing a back-end infrastructure that is loosely coupled and supportive of offline clients. The way we write web apps is changing — and it will always change. This book attempts to capture the snapshot in time of the HTML5 revolution and covers topics from beginner to advanced. You may be a novice who’s just starting to learn web application development, or you may be an expert fine-tuning your existing stack. Either way, this book will give you a baseline for building advanced client-side web applications. This hands-on book looks past the hype and buzzwords surrounding HTML5 and gives you a conservative and practical approach to using HTML5, JavaScript MVC frameworks, and the latest W3C specifications. You’ll quickly master how to build mobile and desktop web apps that are widely supported across all major web browsers and devices. Even though Web Storage, Web Workers, Geolocation, Device Orientation, and WebSockets have been covered many times in the past, it is often from a very high or basic level. This book goes into the trenches to review actual use cases for each of these APIs and gives real-world examples on how to use each one. If you’re familiar with JavaScript, CSS and HTML basics and are ready to start piecing together the architecture of HTML5, then this book is for you. Assemble a coherent architectural whole from HTML5’s complex collection of parts Gain a clear understanding of client-side architecture and the “mobile first” approach Design, create, and tune eye-catching and robust mobile web apps Explore how the top five JavaScript MVC frameworks interact with the server Learn best practices for setting up a raw WebSocket server Examine how sites such as Google, Twitter, and Amazon store data on the client Use real-world methods for applying geolocation, and learn the pitfalls of various implementations Process images and other data in the background with Web Workers This hands-on book shows you how to use HTML5, JavaScript, and the latest W3C specifications to build mobile and desktop web apps that work on all browsers and devices. You’ll quickly master building client-side applications with a loosely coupled backend infrastructure that supports offline clients. This hands-on book shows you how to work with HTML5, JavaScript MVC frameworks, and the latest W3C specifications to build mobile and desktop web apps that are widely supported across all browsers and devices. You’ll quickly master building client-side applications with a loosely coupled backend infrastructure that supports offline clients. Learn how to incorporate web storage, web workers, geolocation, Device Orientation, and WebSockets into your application architecture, using real-world examples. If you’re familiar with server-side programming and understand the basics of HTML5, this book is for you.

The UI is no longer generated by the server and pushed to the client. Today, developers are forced to look at web application architecture from a different perspective where the browser and JavaScript are taking just as much spotlight as server side code (such as Java or Ruby). This book shows them how.
