This is a minimal React.js boilerplate with an auto build environment for Windows which you can fork and clone to easily setup your own projects.

Use git to clone or download the zip from GitHub and run npm install

This boilerplate is specifically for Windows users. Non-windows users should see

TODO: Replace this boilerplate with your project description


  • Windows support - Tested on WinXP, should work on anything newer. Also works with msys (but not required). Only restriction is that needs to use local drives, not network drives.
  • React.js JSX example which fetches from REST source and renders
  • simple build and auto rebuild (watch) using npm run scripts
  • browser-sync for auto reloading in browser on change
  • ES6/7 and JSX compiling to ES5 with babeljs
  • eslint for linting
  • browserify (w/babelify) for bundling javascript for the browser
  • watchify to automatically rebuild on changes
  • uglify for js minification
  • less CSS style compiler
  • cleancss for css minification
  • axios for promise based HTTP client


  • package.json - dependencies and build commands
  • public/index.html - main HTML
  • public/fake-api.json - mock REST api returning json data
  • src/browser.jsx - React.js JSX code which fetches REST data and renders into the main HTML
  • src/util/polyfill.js - Import any core-js or other polyfills here
  • assets/site.less - CSS styles used by site, edit or import into
  • bs-config.js - browser-sync config, set browser to launch
  • dist/ - contains compiled and minified css and js


  • My default browser for browser-sync is Google Chrome, if you want to use a different browser like Google Chrome Canary or Mozilla Firefox edit bs-config.js


Requires node.js/iojs >= 0.10

npm install ## install dependent node modules


TODO: update with your usage
