    React/Express starter project with build pipeline

    This is a simple seed project for a react project with a simple node/express backend, based off of the react tutorial, but written in es2015 syntax.

    Initial setup

    Clone the project

    git clone

    Run npm install

    cd thor-react-seed npm install

    Install livereload chrome extension

    In order to enable live reload, you need to click the symbol. If there is a black filled circle in the middle, it is running.


    gulp build / npm run build

    This builds the code into the /public/build directory and depends on the test task. This build will minify the build.js file as well.

    NOTE: This build process will not bundle react and react-dom into the build.js file, as any consuming apps should already have react and react-dom as dependencies somewhere. If you want to test build.js for whatever reason, you will need to import them into index.html just use:

      <script src=""></script>
      <script src=""></script>

    npm run start-dev

    This runs a nodemon of the server (live reloading on the server) as well as the live reloading/rebuilding for the front end.

    npm start

    This simply runs the node server

    gulp test / npm run test

    This runs the unit tests


    This will be updated with more stuff such as gulp tasks to bundle/publish to npm


    npm i react-gulp-es6-seed
