Why Ignite CLI?
- Easily spin up a new React Native app with best practices built-in
- No runtime! This is a developer tool only, not a library you have to depend on and figure out how to upgrade
- An ever-expanding list of boilerplates and plugins to jump-start your app
- An amazing community of other Ignite / React Native developers when you need help
- Battle tested and used every day by the developers at Infinite Red and thousands of developers around the world
- Works on macOS, Windows, and Linux because not all React Native developers are on one platform
- Saves an average of two weeks on your React Native development
First, make sure you're set up for React Native
Make sure you have a reasonably recent version of Node (7.6+ minimum). You can check your version of node by running
$ node -v
Install Yarn for your system.
$ yarn global add ignite-cli $ ignite new MyNewAppName
Infinite Red provides two primary boilerplates; they are:
- Andross - the tried and true (React Navigation, Redux, & Redux Saga)
- Bowser - the latest and greatest (React Navigation, MobX State Tree, & TypeScript). Why MST over redux?
Watch Jamon Holmgren's talk at React Live Amsterdam where he uses Ignite Bowser to build an app in less than 30 minutes:
$ yarn global add ignite-cli $ ignite new PizzaApp ( Choose `Bowser` when prompted ) $ cd PizzaApp $ ignite generate screen pizza-location-list ( Choose `example` domain when prompted. This determines where your new screen will go in the directory structure. ) $ ignite generate component pizza-location ( Choose `example` domain when prompted. This determines where your new screen will go in the directory structure. ) $ ignite --help
$ yarn global add ignite-cli $ ignite new PizzaApp ( Choose Andross when prompted ) $ cd PizzaApp $ ignite add maps $ ignite add vector-icons $ ignite generate screen PizzaLocationList $ ignite generate component PizzaLocation $ ignite generate map StoreLocator $ ignite add i18n $ ignite remove i18n $ ignite --help
