Angular Sudoku Game
During my Angular learning time, I’ve built this Sudoku game.
It’s pretty basic but fully working.

The source code is available in my GitHub repository.

Spring Boot/Angular Glee-o-meter

Glee-o-meter is a simple Angular 7 application focused on the interaction with a Spring REST server.

The data-centric application offers a basic user-management section, with the possibility to sign-in new users. Each user can manage a list of glee-levels, each one associated with a date, time and comment. There are three different roles:

Admin: has full permissions on the whole data
User manager: has permissions on user data
User: has full permissions on owned glee data.

The application has the following features:

data access with pagination, sorting, ordering, and filtering;
CRUD operations on whole data;
to permit the registration of new users;
authentication based on oauth2 JWT, with token refresh;
consumes REST resources /api/glee, /api/users and /api/signin

The server side is implemented with Spring boot, slightly customized to run on Google App Engine. Server implementation features the following:

oauth2 JWT authentication with spring-boot, using grant types password and refresh token;
publish 2 authenticated REST resources /api/glee, /api/users and one public /api/signin for user registration;
method-level authorization based on @PreAuthorize and @PostAuthorize;
data access based on logged user’s permissions;
Spring-based JSR-349 data validation;
CORS configuration for running separated local server and client development environments;

Trnsfr Is a Simple File Sharing Tool for Self-Hosted Content.
It’s a Node.js web application that permits the creation of public links with a unique path in the form of /transfers/unique-id. Each link permits the download of a zipped content. The content is defined by a list of glob patterns applied to the server’s local file system. Moreover, it is possible to send one or more emails containing the link, with the addition of a subject and a message body.
