Canisters

Import them in your Javascript like so, it is configured in vite.config.js to work automatically

import { counter } from "canisters/counter"

When wishing to remove, add or rename a canister, you will have to edit 2 files:

  • /dfx.json
  • /tsconfig.json (if using typescript, see paths option)

Deploying

More detailed walkthrough soon. For now follow the official guides.

For Fleek

  • Choose fleek/create-react-app as the docker image
  • Set publish directory as dist

FAQ

Q: Is this usable for real apps or just for toys?

A: Yes 100% usable. You don't have to use webpack anymore. ViteJS bundles with rollup when you run the npm run build command. This can result in even smaller sizes than with webpack (which most frameworks are leaving behind). However when developing it skips that because it's unnecessary, and hence provides a better experience.

Q: I want to modify things like directory structure. Can I?

A: Yes! Go wild. ViteJS is very customizable and has excellent documentation. This project is only aiming to provide useful defaults and to get you started quickly.
