generator-react-redux-gulp

    0.3.0 • Public • Published

    A modular, clean and modern workflow template for React/Redux development!

    Requirements

    • NodeJS : 6.x.x - Latest Stable Version
    • NPM : 3.x or higher (Preferably 5.x)
    • Gulp CLI (npm install -g gulp-cli)

    Features

    • Live reloading
    • Easy and declarative folder structure
    • Easily modifiable build code written in gulp; no magical configuration (!)
    • Modular React/Redux architecture which lend themselves well to unit testing
    • Includes simple JSS (via react-jss) for optimal/readable React styling
    • Easy & declarative multi-language support in your app out of the box
    • Minimal deployable Express server which supports easy switching between HTTP/HTTPS
    • Redux and Redux-Router
    • Flags for giving OS notices when builds are successful or fail

    Installation

    1. install Yeoman by running the following: npm install -g yo
    2. install the generator: npm install -g generator-react-redux-gulp
    3. navigate to a folder pointing to your new project and run yo react-redux-gulp, which should install all build and server dependencies to get started on your new project!

    Deployment

    Packaging the app

    simply run gulp build , and your server and assets are ready to go.

    Optional Flags

    • success_notice : Display an OS-level success notice
    • error_sound : Whether to play an OS error sound when compile error happens
    • build_js_debug : Create a production level build, but do not strip debug messages from console.
    • export_standalone : Automatically generate a build folder corresponding to the time you created your package via a builds/[current_date] folder.

    Running the Node/Express Server

    Note: You must first build the app by calling gulp build.

    Run node app in your root folder after installing; it will list clearly how to specify the proper flags for SSL if needed on your server when booting up as well as which server (default port is 3002).

    Or to simply build and run the app, run npm start.

    Developing

    With Live-Reload Server

    In CMD, type gulp to begin a live reload server at localhost:8080. Currently, hot reloading only detects JS changes so server must be reset for other static resource changes.

    Typical Node/Express Development Server

    If you would like to run without a hot reload server in dev mode, static changes can be detected when refreshing without re-running the dev server . simply run gulp dev and then in another console node app --dev (port can be specified as param but default is 3002).

    Optional Flags

    • version_bump : Bump patch version on successful builds (default false)
    • success_notice : Display an OS-level success notice
    • error_sound : Whether to play an OS error sound when compile error happens
    • build_js_debug : Create a production level build, but do not strip debug messages from console.

    Build Configuration

    Configuring Module Aliases

    Modules can be aliased to use as if they were a root npm module by specifying them within the aliases.json located in the build-config folder.

    Configuring Build Paths/Folder Structure

    Configure the build structure of your app via paths.json located in the build-config folder. This includes where the source files, distribution files and javascript can be found and built to. Defaults are already specified but can be overridden.

    Roadmap

    • npm scripts for developing and launching http/https server simultaneously
    • Display an example of easy localization/language tools
    • Tests

    Note

    PR Requests are always welcome!
