Server-side rendering in Create React App

SSR with all the goodies, without ejecting.

Goals

  • Zero modifications to your existing CRA application
  • Create React App without ejecting
  • React 16 (fiber, baby!)
  • React Router v4 (with Thunk)
  • Full SEO support via React Helmet
  • Preloaded page data via async/await and React Frontload
  • Code splitting via React Loadable
  • Server-side cookie support

Examples

  • Multiple pages (/, /about)
  • User-specific pages with preloaded data set on a timeout to fake an API call (/profile/1, /profile/2)
  • Basic authentication with cookie storage (/login, /dashboard, /logout)
  • Not found (404, etc.) page

Installation

  1. Install dependencies via yarn install
  2. To run locally, use yarn start
  3. To run under SSR mode, use yarn build && yarn serve

Why?

Server-side rendering is a requirement for many modern web applications to appear correctly in search engines and social media parsers.
