Boilerplate and tooling for web application development based on React (ReactJS), Redux, Babel, Webpack, CSS Modules, PostCSS, Browsersync, React Hot Loader and optimized for CDN hosting in Firebase

React Static Boilerplate  

React Static Boilerplate (RSB) is a boilerplate and tooling for creating modern stand-alone web applications (aka SPAs) for a serverless architecture. RSB significantly reduces cost by eliminating the need for servers such as EC2 instances because the entire site can be hosted directly from CDN (Firebase, GitHub Pages, Amazon S3, or other similar cloud storage). Sites built with RSB can be fully functional with REST API or GraphQL calls to micro-services such as Amazon Lambda, Azure Functions, or dynamic Docker endpoints hosted on DigitalOcean. RSB demonstrates how to use component-based UI development approach with best of breed technologies including React, Redux, Babel, Webpack, Browsersync, React Hot Loader and more. This work is being sponsored by:


✓ Modern JavaScript syntax (ES2015+) via Babel, modern CSS syntax via PostCSS
✓ Component-based UI architecture via React, Webpack and CSS Modules
✓ Application state management /w time-travel debugging via Redux (see main.js, store.js)
✓ Routing and navigation via path-to-regexp and history (main.js, router.js, tools/routes-loader.js)
Code-splitting and async chunk loading via Webpack v2
✓ Hot Module Replacement (HMR) /w React Hot Loader, cross-device testing with Browsersync (see run.js)

Getting Started

Step 1. Make sure that you have Node.js v6 or newer and Yarn installed on your development machine.

Step 2. Clone this repository (alternatively, use Yeoman generator to bootstrap your project):

$ git clone -o react-static-boilerplate -b master --single-branch \ MyApp
$ cd MyApp
$ yarn install                  # Install project dependencies listed in package.json

Step 3. Compile and launch your app by running:

$ yarn start                    # Compiles the app and opens it in a browser with "live reload"

You can also test your app in release (production) mode by running yarn start -- --release or with HMR and React Hot Loader disabled by running yarn start -- --no-hmr. The app should become available at http://localhost:3000/.

How to Test

The unit tests are powered by chai and mocha.

$ yarn lint                     # Check JavaScript and CSS code for potential issues
$ yarn test                     # Run unit tests. Or, `yarn run test:watch`

How to Deploy

Update publish script in the tools/publish.js file with your full Firebase project name as found in your Firebase console. Note that this may have an additional identifier suffix than the shorter name you’ve provided. Then run:

$ yarn run publish                  # Builds and deployes the app to Firebase

The first time you publish, you will be prompted to authenticate with Google and generate an authentication token in order for the publish script to continue.


If you need to build the project without publishing it, simply run:

$ yarn build                    # Compiles the app into the /public/dist folder

How to Update

You can always fetch and merge the recent changes from this repo back into your own project:

$ git checkout master
$ git fetch react-static-boilerplate
$ git merge react-static-boilerplate/master
$ yarn install
