AdonisJS 5 (preview) was released recently and as we all have expected, it comes with a lot of improvement as well as new features. Above, all AdonisJS 5 has been completely rewritten in TypeScript, which means we get to make use of all the great TypeScript features such as type safety and IntelliSense support. In this course, we'll learn AdonisJS 5 completely from scratch.

This is a project-based course, where you get to learn by building. We'll cover each aspect of the framework while we gradually build a tasks application.

Getting Started

1m 44s

We start with a brief introduction to AdonisJS and the format of the course.

In this lesson, we set up our computer by installing the necessary requirements for AdonisJS 5 such as Node.js >= 12 and NPM >= 6.

In this lesson, we see how to create our first AdonisJS 5 application using create-adonis-ts-app.

Ace is a command line tool for executing AdonisJS commands. In this lesson, we take a look at how to make use of it to run commands.

Since TypeScript cannot be executed directly by Node.js, we need to compile it to JavaScript, which Node.js can then execute. Let’s take a moment to understand what happens when we run serve command.

In this lesson, we go over the directory structure of an AdonisJS 5 application.

Routes serve as entry points to an AdonisJS application. In this lesson, we cover how to create routes.
