Node.js module: JSON Server

Most cases of web frontend development, require a functioning backend. Yet quite often the frontend and backend are developed separately. This means, that the functionality of the frontend can only be tested, if there’s a backend providing it with a counterpoint station.

Here it stands, the monolith that has grown for decades, and is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain and expand. An undifferentiated rewrite would be too expensive and no guarantee that it would be better this time. In order to tame the monolith, we can refactor it on a large scale, i. e. maintain its behaviour but improve its structure. This can be done, for example, by extracting microservices - and preferably in small steps.

Testing PHP code more efficiently

Quality code is highly valued in the PHP community. You’ll rarely find untested libraries on GitHub.
