Let's Learn Adonis 5
Learn AdonisJS 5 in-depth as we step through all the major functionalities of the framework in-depth. Learn about Routing, Controllers, Lucid, Auth, and much more.
Prerequisites & Creating A New Project
In this lesson, we'll learn about AdonisJS 5; what it is, what it offers, its prerequisites, and how to create a new project. We'll then start our project up to ensure everything is working.
In this lesson, we'll get familiar with our Adonis 5 project by running through all the folders and files and their purposes. We'll learn which folders and files within our project structure
Introducing the Ace CLI
In this lesson, we'll be learning about Adonis' command-line interface (CLI). Including what the Ace CLI is, its options, how it'll be expanded, and how we can create custom commands
Understanding the HttpContext
The HttpContext object contains unique information about individual requests our application receives. In this lesson, we'll cover what it is, how it's passed, and how we can mutate it.
We'll learn how to define routes in Adonis using the Route module. We'll cover defining routes for specific HTTP Methods (like GET, POST, PUT/PATCH, and DELETE), Caveats, and Brisk Routes.
Dynamic Routing with Route Parameters
In this lesson, we go in-depth with route parameters covering optional route params, validation using matchers, casting, wildcards, and a few things to watch out for.
Moving & Organizing Routes
In this lesson, we'll cover various different ways you can structure your routes within your Adonis project, including moving the routes.ts file, and using a module approach
Naming, Grouping, & Prefixing Routes
In this lesson, we'll learn about naming routes and using groups with prefixes to structure our routes and reduce redundancies.
Multi-File Route Grouping Strategies
In this lesson, we'll discuss strategies you can use to apply multiple files worth of route definitions into a single route group without redefining the route group in each file.
Generating URLs and Signed URLs
In this lesson, we'll be focusing specifically on generating URLs from our route definitions. We'll cover generating generic URLs, signed URLs, redirect URLs, and more.
Extending the Adonis Router and Route Matchers
In this lesson, we'll be learning how we can add our own chainable methods using macros to the Adonis Router's Route, Route Group, Route Resource, Brisk Route, and Matchers properties.
Handling Routes with Controllers
In this lesson, we'll learn about Controllers and how we can keep our route definitions clean and easy to scan by extracting our route handlers into these Controllers.
Route & Controller Resources
In this lesson, we'll learn what a resource is and how we can quickly and easily define a route resource and handle each resourceful route with a resource controller.
Static, Non-Static, & Singleton Services
We'll learn what services are. We'll then discuss three different ways we can use them within our AdonisJS application, including static, non-static, and singleton services.
