Server-Side Rendering (SSR) leads to fast initial page loads, search-engine-friendly pages, and of course...its all type safe!
Clone the repo, change directory, install dependencies, build the code, and run it!
git clone https://github.com/styfle/react-server-example-tsx.gitcd react-server-example-tsxnpm installnpm run buildnpm run testnpm start
Then navigate to http://localhost:3007 and click on the buttons to see some reactive events in action.
Don't forget to set the environment variable
NODE_ENV=production to avoid the slower, dev version of React. Like so:
npx now -e NODE_ENV=production styfle/react-server-example-tsx
The original code from
mhart attempts to sanitize the props by escaping and then inserting into a
I avoided this by performing 1 extra http request to fetch the props as json before initializing React in the browser. This means that click handlers will not be initialized until the data is returned and React can pick up where it left off after the server-side render and attach the click even handlers. This is the purpose of
See browser.tsx for the client-side code.
See server.ts for the server-side code.
Based on prior work found at mhart/react-server-example. It's very good so you should check it out :)
