  • Next.js, NestJS, MobX and how I structured my open-source project | 2021-09-17
    I consulted an open source community Facebook group named "Pull Request", and I was recommended to use NestJS. At first, it was really hard for me to get used to a whole new framework, which is written in Typescript rather than Javascript (although it is possible to use it with JS), and contains a whole new set of classes, objects, and methodologies. Nonetheless, it felt like the right thing to do, as Nest helps to keep your code organized, and much less error-prone.

  • Hello Ghostfolio 👋 — Personal Finance Management Software | 2021-09-12
    With this background I have started the ambitious project and programmed with small steps a software that I could quickly use for myself. As a stack, I chose modern web technologies that are personally of particular interest or that I would like to learn and deepen. These include Docker, Nx for the management of the monorepo, NestJS for the backend and PostgreSQL as a database. The code of the frontend and backend is written in TypeScript.
  • Best language to learn in 2weeks
    Then all you have to do is run node myFile.js in your terminal. I'd strongly suggest using the documentation from MDN for Javascript information. There's also lots of fun stuff in Javascript: React, Angular, Express, Nest. There is a lot of stuff to learn. LOTS. It might be mind-boggling at first. So start simple. Or not, just dive right in and run npx create-react-app from your terminal and get going. Then you get to learn two syntaxes, JS and JSX!

  • Need ideas for implementing an easy-to-learn back-end. | 2021-08-27
    Have you looked at They have a lot of tools that will allow you to stay in your preferred framework and extend into server using tools that will feel familiar. I like for my backend stuff. They also create express for you. The nice thing is a lot of the configuration and tooling is automatically set up for you. You can stay entirely in TypeScript/Javascript if that is your preference.

  • What should I use to build my new project? | 2021-08-12
    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • Top 5 TypeScript dependency injection containers | 2021-07-29
    NestJS is a framework that uses a custom DI container under the hood. It is possible to run NestJS as a standalone application as a wrapper over its DI container. It uses decorators and their metadata for injections. Scoping is allowed, and you can choose from singletons, transient objects, or request-bound objects.

  • Interact with Relational Databases using TypeORM (w/JavaScript) | 2021-07-26
    I bet most of the Node.js community has heard of TypeORM at some point in their life. So people working with NestJS literally know this ORM from one end to the other.
