as i was getting dizzy with the thought of having some jade template engine in my beautiful mean stack code,

- about phantomjs - where i exaplain about phantom and show how to use it outside and inside of node server
- single page application crawling - where i explain a bit about how crawlers work and thus how the solution works
- hooking it all together - where we show how to generate sitemap at runtime and serve the prerendered version of the page
