Install it once, globally
npm install -g create-react-redux-router-app
create-react-redux-router-app relies on
create-react-app which will need to be installed separately. Instructions can be found here.
Creating a new app
To create a new app, run
What this package is:
A thin wrapper around
This project is a thin wrapper around Facebook's create-react-app but adds the following common libraries needed for most medium to large-sized web apps:
What this package is not:
A replacement for
This project is not a replacement for
create-react-app, but rather a thin wrapper around it. Apps created using this project are not ejected out of
create-react-app and can still be upgraded to newer versions of
react-scripts as needed. This project also includes all the same scripts included with
create-react-app for running a development server and building production versions.
A full-stack solution
create-react-redux-router-app makes no assumptions about the backend of your app. This project is opinionated, however, about the packages you should use for state-management and url routing.
What you get?
create-react-redux-router-app not only installs the latest versions of the above-described packages, but also overwrites some of the default template files included with
App.js - imports a
<App />to the Redux store.
index.js - This file wraps the
<App/>component included with
<Provider/>component imported from
react-redux, and the
<BrowserRouter/>component imported from
store.js - This file imports
reduxand exports as the default export a Redux store with a basic reducer.
Why is the name so horribly long?
Because you'll save so much time not having to write boilerplate code to setup your state management and routing that you can afford the extra characters in your terminal command.
Also it's descriptive.
