Create Fake Backend with Node Express

The thing I’m most satisfied with in a long time is the introduction of a fake backend for my team’s frontend development. When you have another system that you depend on and that you have no control over, it’s always worth considering if that system can be replaced with a fake version for development. This is especially valuable when this backend system(s) is highly configurable and can be in a lot of different “states” that you cannot control. Read more...

Replacing Web Compiler With Node Sass

Hopefully I can save you some googling with the links in this post if you run into the same issues as I have. Read more...
