React with Flux Starter Kit

This contains the completed environment setup that we walk through in detail in module 2 of "Building Applications with React and Flux" on Pluralsight.

NOTE: For the final demo built in the course, go here. And here's an updated demo that uses the latest versions.

This starter kit gives you the following:

  • React, React Router, and Flux for ultra-responsive UI development
  • Browserify bundling
  • jQuery with Bootstrap for styling
  • Gulp build that:
    • compiles JSX
    • lints JSX and JS via ESLint
    • bundles JS and CSS files
    • migrates the built app to the dist folder
    • runs a dev webserver
    • opens your browser at the dev URL
    • reloads the browser upon save

To get started:

  1. Install NodeJS
  2. Download this repo
  3. Open the command line of your choice and cd to the root directory of this repo on your machine
  4. npm install - Installs packages
  5. npm install -g gulp - Installs gulp globally. Why globally?
  6. gulp - Builds the project and opens your browser. Check here if you have issues.
  7. Navigate to http://localhost:9005/ if your browser doesn't open automatically.

You're now all set to follow along with the course!

Having Issues? Try this:

  1. If you have an .eslintrc file in your user directory, delete it.
