    JCU web application template

    This package contains a ReactJS component that can wrap the contents of a web application, providing the default style of a header and footer.

    Included libraries

    The following libraries are required to be included for this template:

    • Bootstrap 4.1.0 or higher.

    Installation and usage

    Install with the following command:

    npm install --save @jamescookuniversity/jcu-web-app-template

    Use the template as follows:

    import Template from '@jamescookuniversity/jcu-web-app-template';
    export default (props) => {
        return (
            <Template title="Sample application">
                <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
                <p>This is some content.</p>

    Application Navigation menu

    The navigation menu under the title text can be customised. Provide a structure to the nav attribute of the Template component to like so (note: href is only needed on leaf nodes of the tree):

    const navMenu = [
        {href: 'https://www.acme.com', label: 'ACME site'},
        {label: 'Menu', children: [
            {href: '/about', label: 'About this app'},		
            {href: '/contacts', label: 'Contacts'}		
    class App extends Component {
        render() {
            <Template title="Sample application" nav={navMenu}>
                <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
                <p>This is some content.</p>
