React TypeScript Webpack Starter

A very simple starter project for using React,TypeScript and Webpack.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.


Note: Webpack is installed locally as recommended by the official Webpack documentation. It makes it easy to upgrade projects individually when breaking changes are introduced.

Once you have forked and cloned off the project. Install the project dependencies by running:

npm install


We will utilise webpack-dev-server to run a dev server. It serves webpack projects and updates the browser automatically with any changes we make in our code.

You can run webpack-dev-server --mode development

Alternatively utilising our npm scripts inside our package.json

npm run dev


You can run webpack --mode production or the below using our npm scripts.

npm run build

Built With

  • React - JavaScript library for building user interfaces.
  • TypeScript - TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript.
  • Webpack - App bundler for JavaScript.

Required for Webpack and TypeScript

Webpack Plugins

Additional Notes

  • Terser - used by Webpack for compiling for production recently rolled out a breaking change. As a temporary workaround, I've installed an earlier version of "terser": "^3.14.1" as this works. Read more on the issue here.
