webpack2-react-env-boilerplate

A boilerplate for creating applications with Webpack 2.2, Babel w/ babel-preset-env, and React.

This package includes everything you need to start building an application with Webpack 2 and React.

package.json

Here you'll find a list of devDependencies for creating this type of application, however, they are listed under 'dependencies' since I use this project as a grouped devDependency in my personal projects.

package.json.tpl

Here is an example of what your package.json might look like, were you to use this package as a devDependency. Should you choose to do so, you can install this package with the command:

npm install --save-dev webpack2-react-env-boilerplate

server.js

Using the command NODE_ENV=development && node server.js will start your application with hot module reloading on port :3000 of your localhost, using the webpack configuration at webpack.config.dev.js and the index file at index.html.

webpack.config.dev.js

This is an example of a basic development webpack configuration file for this type of application.

webpack.config.js

This is an example of a basic distribution webpack configuration file for this type of application. Commented out are examples of implementing http2 aggressive code splitting.

.babelrc

This is an example of a basic Babel 6 configuration utilizing babel-preset-env.

/src

This is where example index files for both hot reloading (index.hot.js) and distribution builds (index.js) are located, as well as the 'Hello world' React component (App.js).
