Features

Modular React and Redux with Typescript

Scale your application by using the power of React and Redux, in combination with Typescript. Rush provides you with an extreme modular architecture, which allows you to add features without sacrificing control.

SSO your Single Page Application with Server Side Rendering

Combine the speed of Single Page Applications with the advantages of classic Websites. Rush renders everything on the server and after it reaches the client, it becomes a single page application. This allows you to do search engine optimization, while providing the best possible experience for the user!

Never restart again! Hot Reload client and server

Development speed is important! That's why we hot reload everything. With the help of webpack, we automatically update the server, client and the api server while you are writing code!

Feel the power of Webpack

Webpack is amazing. But it can be pretty overwhelming, especially at the beginning. Rush already sets up everything for you so you can immediately start coding! But you also have all the freedom to customize everything later.

Concentrate on important stuff! Generate everything

Generate new modules, components, containers and redux stores with your command line! Rush comes with a lot of subgenerators to make your life as easy as possible.

Be prepared for production with code splitting, minimizing and tree shaking

We already prepared the production builds for you! Just run the command and your application is ready to be deployed!

Make it beautiful with SCSS and auto prefixing

Define your styles with the full power SCSS. For every component, Rush automatically generates a scss for you. Because of auto prefixing, you can completely forget about '-webkit', '-moz' and co.

An a lot more...

Get Started

Install yeoman, generator-rush and yarn from npm:

$ npm install -g yo generator-rush yarn

To generate a new project run:

$ rh

Navigate into the project folder:

cd <project-folder>

Run yarn start and open http://localhost:3000/ in your favorite browser.

Everything is setup and you can start developing!

Developer Tools

It is highly recommended to use Rush in combination with the following Chrome extensions:

The rh command

Rush uses yeoman for the scaffolding. But to save you some typing it wraps the yeoman command into it's own command. The Rush command is rh which is the equivalent of yo rush. To start a generator with the rush command you run, for example, rh component new-component instead of yo rush:component new-component. There is no disadvantage in using the original yo command. All the following examples use the rh command.

Generators

The following generators are available:

App

$ rh <arguments> <option>

or

$ rh app <arguments> <option>

Set up the app and generates all the boilerplate for you.

Options:

-h --help Print the generator's options and usage

--skip-install Do not automatically install dependencies

--upgrade If true, the generator tries to find an existing generator configuration and just regenerates the project. Set this flag if you want to update an existing project. You have to be in the project folder so yeoman can find the configuration. The default is false.

Module

$ rh module <arguments> <option>

Generates a new module under ./src/app/modules. A module is a self contained unit which can contain several components containers and a redux state. It is also a reference point for other generators.

Arguments:

<name> The name of the module

Options:

-h --help Print the generator's options and usage

Component

$ rh component <arguments> <option>

Generates a new react component in the specific module or under a specific path. This command will also generate the test and style files for the component. The default path output is ./src/app/modules/<module-name>/components/<component-name>.

Arguments:

<name> The name of the component. It is also possible to prepend a path in front of the name. This will create a folder relative to destination of the component. For example yo trb:component my-folder/my-component will generate the component in the folder my-folder.

Options:

-h --help Print the generator's options and usage

-m --module The target module the component should generated in. If you are already in a module folder you don't need to set this option. In this case, the generator can find the module name automatically.

-d --destination Set's the destination folder of the component relative to the current folder. You don't need to set this if the module option is already defined. But sometimes you want to generate component outside of your modules.

-f --flat Generates the component files directly into the destination folder, without generating a subfolder with the component name. The default is false.

-s --stateless Generates a stateless component instead of a stateful one. This also means there will be no styles generated for this component. The default is false.

Container

$ rh container <arguments> <option>

Generates a new react-redux container for a specific component. For more information checkout their documenation Per default the container will be generated into ./src/app/modules/<module-name>/containers/<container-name>.

Arguments:

<name> The name of the container. Like in the component generator, it is also possible to prepend a path in front of the name.

Options:

-h --help Print the generator's options and usage

--componentName Set the name of the component which the container should connect to the store. Per default, the component has the same name as the container. The generator assumes that the component is saved under ./src/app/modules/<module-name>/components/<component-name>. If this is not the case, the imports need to be adjusted accordingly.

-m --module The target module the container should generated in. If you are already in a module folder you don't need to set this option. In this case, the generator can find the module name automatically.

-d --destination Set's the destination folder of the container relative to the current folder. You don't need to set this if the module option is already defined.

Duck

$ rh duck <arguments> <option>

Rush is intended to be used with the redux modular duck pattern. To reduce the boilerplate code the library https://github.com/mhoyer/redux-typed-ducks is used. The duck generator can automatically generate a basic duck file for you.

Arguments:

<name> The name of the duck. If you want to create the duck into a subfolder, it is possible to prepend a path in front of the name.

<elements> What actions should the duck have (lowercase, separated by a space)? For example "get get-all delete" will create the actions app/<duck-name>/GET, app/<duck-name>/GET_ALL and app/<duck-name>/DELETE and the associated action creators and reducers.

Options:

-h --help Print the generator's options and usage

-m --module The target module the duck should generated in. If you are already in a module folder you don't need to set this option. In this case, the generator can find the module name automatically.

-d --destination Set's the destination folder of the duck relative to the current folder. You don't need to set this if the module option is already defined.

Logging

Per default, the generated project has a tslint rule which forbids the use console.log. This is to prevent that verbose console logs are forgotten and included in the production build.

To have more control we included Typescript Logging. You can use it like the following:

import { loggerFactory } from '@src/logging';
 
const logger = loggerFactory.getLogger('logger-name');
 
logger.debug('This is a debug message');
logger.info('This is an info message');
logger.warn('This is an warning');
logger.fatal('This is a fatal message');
logger.error('This is an error');

Debug messages not be printed in the production build. You can control the logging levels in the ./src/logging.ts file. For more information, please refer to the official documentation.

Scripts

NPM Scripts

The newly generated project comes with the following npm scripts:

Script Description
start Shortcut for start:dev
start:dev Build and start the ui server and the api server
start:prod Build and start the ui server and the api server for production
start:server:dev Build and start the ui server
start:api:dev Build and start the api server
start:server:prod Build and start the ui server for production
start:api:prod Build and start the api server for production
run:server Start the ui server. This commands assumes the server is already build.
run:api Start the api server. This commands assumes the server is already build.
build:dev Build the ui server, api server and client.
build:prod Build the ui server, api server and client for production.
build:<target>:<env> Build for a specific target and environment (Replace <target> with client, server or api and <env> with dev or prod)
test Shortcut for test:dev
test:dev Run the unit tests with the development build
test:prod Run the unit tests with the production build
test:e2e Run the protractor e2e tests. Please make sure you run webdriver:update and webdriver:start before
webdriver:update Update the selenium webdriver for protractor
webdriver:start Start the selenium webdriver for protractor
lint Run tslint to check the project files for errors
lint:fix Run tslint and fix errors that can be fixed
check Run tslint and the unit tests

Build Script

All the build processes are handled by an build script, which is located in the scripts folder. As an alternative to the npm scripts, you can use the build script directly:

./scripts/build.js <enviroment> <options>

Run ./scripts/build.js without any arguments to see the available arguments and options.

Parameters:

enviroment The target environment for the build. Possible values are production and development.

Options:

--target The target of the build. Possible values are client, server or api. There are also multiple values possible if there are separated by a comma. For example client,server will select client and server as a target.

--watch If this flag is enabled, the builder will watch the build and update the server on changes.

--callback Callback that will be executed after the builds are finished. If the callback process ends, the callback will be restarted on the next build.

--force-restart This option can only be used in combination with the callback option. If set, this forces the callback to restart on every new build, even if the process is still running.
