There's a lot of discussion related to server vs client side application rendering. While there is no "one choice fits all" solution, I'll try to argue in favor of client side (specifically AngularJS) from different points of view. First of them is architecture.
In this article we'll develop a back-end solution that can be used with any front-end (Web, mobiles...). In the next article we'll extend on this example and work on the front-end using AngularJS, JQuery and Bootstrap CSS.
The goal of the application is to be able to administer books. In particular, we'll develop the back-end solution for that application that should be able to:
- Add new book
- Update existing book
- Delete an existing book
- List all books
- Display details of the selected book
- Delete all books
