Idea behind the example

This shows how to setup Preact with Razzle.

Here is a list of changes from Razzle's base template:

  1. Install babel-plugin-transform-react-jsx as a devDependency.
  2. Extend Razzle's babel config with a custom .babelrc
  3. Install preact and preact-render-to-string
  4. Remove react, react-dom, react-router-dom entirely
  5. Update server.js to use preact-render-to-string's render function. Also remove the <div id="root"> element from our html template since Preact can render to the body.
