Kentico Cloud React Starter

Whut?

A very simple boilerplate to render data from Kentico Cloud to both the server and the client, using React components

Note: Currently, this is client-side only! The next step would be to SSR this baby, which is totally do-able using this environment. I just don't have time right now to sort it. Feel free to chip in if you do

We're now rendering server-side first :)

How to run

  • Install latest node
  • Pull the repo
  • npm i
  • npm start
  • Head to localhost:3000

How to configure

  • Head to https://kenticocloud.com
  • Sign up for a free trial
  • Once you're set up, and logged into your Kentico Cloud site, click the Kentico logo in the top left hand corner and click "Development"
  • Copy the "Project ID"
  • Replace the Project ID in src/config/default.json with yours:
{
	"projectId": "your-project-id-here",
	"previewAPIKey": "your-preview-api-key-here"
}

You should now see some data on localhost:3000. If you don't, here is what might have happened:

  • You pasted the Project ID wrong
  • Kentico have changed their base project and the fields have changed. Try inspecting the data
  • React doesn't like a field. Check the console.
  • Slack me @js, or open an issue

TODO:

  • Render the content on the server, first
  • Look into the various content-specific endpoints Kentico provides
  • Look at hooking up a view model/an action -> store configuration, for easier data management
  • Add nodemon
