This is an in-depth learning series focused on a specific application: a JavaScript-based suite of single-page applications optimized for use in a microservice environment. We focus on telling the story of “why” and “how” it was built.

In part one, we reviewed how the base application was created by using the Express Generator command line tool. We also reviewed the folder layout, look and feel, and an overview of what each section of the application does. In this post, we’re going to dive in a little deeper to the application and explain the why and how of the navigation setup for this application….
