What is the best practice of using ReactJS with Rails? react-rails, react_on_rails, or webpacker and pure front-end stack?

I ain't for sure about the "best practice", but I can share some of my experiences :-)

When Pokrex was using react-rails, there's no webpacker yet, all your code will go through babel(transform), sprocket. It's easy to use, you'll just write your "components", but without webpack, npm, it's like dancing in Rails, instead of "in Javascript". Thanks to webpacker, it now looks like a good choice. Later on I switched to react_on_rails, because it provides with webpack, yarn.etc.

Have to say webpacker is awesome, the reason I'm thinking that remove react_on_rails is that webpacker offers what I want and SSR isn't what I want. But if you want SSR, react-rails or react_on_rails might be your choice, I lean to react-rails, it looks a bit simple. If only CSR, webpacker is simple and good option. IMO.
