reactor-core

A small library to help create isomorphic apps in React

This is a small but fairly opinionated module that should let you get up and running with a React app quickly.

It uses the following modules to achieve this:

Check out a demo of it in use in this repo.

var React      = require('react');
var Reactor    = require('reactor-core').inject(React);
var Layout     = require('./layouts/myHTMLLayout');

var App = Reactor.createClass({

  routes: {
    '/': require('./pages/Home')
  },

  render: function(Page) {
    return this.transferPropsTo(
      <Layout onClick={this.navigate} title={this.state.title}>
        <Page data={this.state.pageData} className="page" />
      </Layout>
    );
  }

});

Reactor.browserStart(App);
module.exports = App;

Reactor comes with a simple middleware to help you render your app. You can use it like so:

var express = require('express');
var Server = express();
var App = require('./app'); // top level react component

Server.use(reactorMiddleware(App, {
  wrapper: function(markup) { return '<!doctype>' + markup },
  props: { // props to pass to your top level component
    baseUrl: 'http://example.com'
  }
}))
.listen(3000);

This is all very early stages, things will change.
