react component project generator


First, install Yeoman and generator-mitchallen-react-component using npm (we assume you have pre-installed node.js).

Note: You may need to preface npm install -g commands with sudo.

npm install -g yo
npm install -g generator-mitchallen-react-component

Create and Generate Project

Then generate your new project:

mkdir myproject
cd myproject
yo mitchallen-react-component

React peer dependency

Now react is only installed as a peer dependency. It is assumed that whatever app the component is dropped into will install react. This avoid errors with some libraries that won't compile if two versions of react are found in the same project.

Avoid installing react locally to avoid any future conflicts. To run the tests you may need to install react globally, or push to a ci server that installs react before running your tests. The generated CircleCI script is setup to do that.

Continuous Integration Support

There seems to be issues running webpack under TravisCI. So I've made the following changes:

  • Added support for CircleCI
    • Generated projects will now create the following hidden folder and file:
      • .circleci/config.yml
      • You can see it on a Mac/Linux with: ls -la
  • The badge and link generated in the README now point to your project on CircleCI
  • You are now prompted for your CircleCI username instead of your Travis CI username
  • A .travis.yml file is no longer generated
  • You can track my bug report here:
  • When resolved I'll restore support for Travis CI

Getting To Know Yeoman


Install Test Framework

To run the generator tests you will need to globally install jest (

npm install -g jest jest-cli

To test, go to the root folder and type:

npm test
