Test-driven Development of Node.js APIs

By:  TAGS: , ,

Many articles describe the interaction between Node.js and Elasticsearch, but they often do not clearly explain how this interaction was achieved. To fill this gap, this article describes test-driven, step-by-step development of a simple RESTful API into an Elasticsearch in Node.js.

My main intention is to show Node.js developers how a RESTful API might be written using a TDD approach. Applying TDD practices makes the process much faster and results in a less error-prone API. Moreover, the whole application architecture becomes testable and therefore simpler and cleaner.  

This article is divided into three main sections, with subsections and numbered steps to facilitate ease of use: Read More
