Infinite Red's latest and greatest React Native boilerplate
Once you've installed the Ignite CLI, you can get started with this boilerplate.
- React Native
- React Navigation
- MobX State Tree
- Reactotron (requires 2.x)
- And more!
To see it in action, check out these examples!
First, install Ignite CLI:
$ yarn global add ignite-cli
Then spin up a new Bowser-powered React Native app:
$ ignite new MyApp -b bowser
The Ignite Bowser boilerplate project's structure will look similar to this:
ignite-project ├── app │ ├── components │ ├── i18n │ ├── models │ ├── navigation │ ├── screens │ ├── services │ ├── theme │ ├── utils │ ├── app.tsx │ ├── environment-variables.ts ├── storybook │ ├── views │ ├── index.ts │ ├── storybook-registry.ts │ ├── storybook.ts ├── test │ ├── __snapshots__ │ ├── storyshots.test.ts.snap │ ├── mock-i18n.ts │ ├── mock-reactotron.ts │ ├── setup.ts │ ├── storyshots.test.ts ├── README.md ├── android ├── ignite │ ├── ignite.json │ └── plugins ├── index.js ├── ios └── package.json
Included in an Ignite boilerplate project is the
app directory. This is a directory you would normally have to create when using vanilla React Native.
The inside of the
app directory looks similar to the following:
app │── components │── i18n ├── models ├── navigation ├── screens ├── services ├── theme ├── utils ├── app.tsx ├── environment-variables.ts
This is where your React dumb components will live. Each component will have a directory containing the
.tsx file, along with a story file, and optionally
.props files for larger components. The app will come with some commonly used components like Button.
This is where your translations will live if you are using
This is where your app's models will live. Each model has a directory which will contain the
mobx-state-tree model file, test file, and any other supporting files like actions, types, etc.
This is where your
react-navigation navigators will live.
This is where your screen components will live. A screen is a React component which will take up the entire screen and be part of the navigation hierarchy. Each screen will have a directory containing the
.tsx file, along with any assets or other helper files.
services Any services that interface with the outside world will live here (think REST APIs, Push Notifications, etc.).
theme Here lives the theme for your application, including spacing, colors, and typography.
utils This is a great place to put miscellaneous helpers and utilities. Things like date helpers, formatters, etc. are often found here. However, it should only be used for things that are truely shared across your application. If a helper or utility is only used by a specific component or model, consider co-locating your helper with that component or model.
app.tsx This is the entry point to your app. This is where you will find the main App component which renders the rest of the application. This is also where you will specify whether you want to run the app in storybook mode.
ignite directory stores all things Ignite, including CLI and boilerplate items. Here you will find generators, plugins and examples to help you get started with React Native.
This is where your stories will be registered and where the Storybook configs will live
This directory will hold your Jest configs and mocks, as well as your storyshots test file. This is a file that contains the snapshots of all your component storybooks.
