Test-Driven Node Postgres Knex Dockerized

Three days ago I started a short tutorial on how to write a test-driven Node.js web API with PostgreSQL database. The excellent blog post is from 2016, but it’s still useful. I used Docker to build the application. If you want to see the example application as a dockerized Node.js/Express.js program, you can take a look at my GitLab repository. The repository also uses GitLab CI to build the container and run the tests with Mocha.

Learning About Nodejs Graphql Microservices

I’m currently working on a few micro-services with Docker. The architecture looks promising to me, and I like to play with Docker containers. Lately I’ve been watching a few videos about Node.js/GraphQL Microservices by Better Coding Academy. The tutorial series assumes a lot of knowledge (JavaScript, Express, GraphQL, Docker). I would have liked more detailed explanations. But the videos are still useful for showing the architecture of an Express/GraphQL setup with micro-services.

Learning About Best Practices for Docker and Node

Today I’ve tried to update one of my Docker apps that uses React, Enzyme, and Jest. This lead me on a wild goose chase about react-test-renderer and best practices for Docker builds for Node.js. I’m still not sure where the problem is (Enzyme, maybe?). But I found three useful resources for Docker and Node.js: Docker and Node.js Best Practices Node + Docker Hello World, for Showing Good Defaults for Using Node.
