This repo uses Lerna to manage multiple related packages that are part of the Electrode Core.

App Archetype

electrode-archetype-react-app is a NPM module that provides for common patterns across all app projects so that each app project can standardize on common development behavior and patterns. Its essentially pre-made patterns for build scripts. It also requires a companion module electrode-archetype-react-app-dev that's meant for your app's devDependencies.

Yeoman Generator

The Yeoman generator-electrode NPM module allows you to quickly create an Universal React App with support from the app archetype, and server in Node with Hapi or Express.

Sample Applications

Some sample applications can be found under the samples directory.

Boilerplate Universal React Node

Under samples/universal-react-node is a sample Electrode app that was created with the Electrode generator and consumes the Electrode App archetype modules. We've added other demos and features to it to serve as examples. It demonstrates usage with the following Electrode modules:

See its README for more details.

Sample Universal React Node with material-ui

Under samples/universal-material-ui is a sample Electrode app that uses the material-ui React components.

See its README for more details.
