ArkhamJS React TypeScript Example
A simple base application to start you off on your ReactJS project. Uses the following modules:
- arkhamjs - A clean, simple Flux framework.
- @nlabs/lex - CLI tool to assist in development. Initialize, test, and compile your apps with zero setup. Using Jest, Webpack, and Typescript.
- @nlabs/arkhamjs-storage-browser - ArkhamJS browser storage. Caches state in session or local storage.
- @nlabs/arkhamjs-middleware-logger - ArkhamJS console log middleware.
- Clone the repo and install the necessary node modules:
$ npm install -g yarn @nlabs/lex # Install Yarn and Lex $ yarn # Install Node modules listed in ./package.json (may take a while the first time)
yarn start also
Runs the webpack build system to compile scripts on the fly. Run local web server. The default webpack dev server can be found at
localhost:5000. The port can be changed in the config.
Compile your application and copy static files for a production environment.
Lint your app with tslint.
Runs all unit tests within your app with Jest.
Run tests and then, on success, compile your application for a production environment.
Compile your application for a development environment. Run local development web server. The default web server url is:
See @nlabs/lex for documentation on custom configuration.

Components vs. Views vs. Layouts
TL;DR: They're all components.
This distinction may not be important for you, but as an explanation: A Layout is something that describes an entire page structure, such as a fixed navigation, viewport, sidebar, and footer. Most applications will probably only have one layout, but keeping these components separate makes their intent clear. Views are components that live at routes, and are generally rendered within a Layout. What this ends up meaning is that, with this structure, nearly everything inside of Components ends up being a dumb component.
.css imports will be run through postcss and cssnext, extracted and compiled during builds. CSS features included are nested classes and SASS-like variables. Styles must be imported either directly within the js file or via another stylesheet which has already been imported.
// JS import `./component.css`;
To add a unit test, simply create a
*.test.tsx file within the
/src directory. Jest will look for these for and test these files.
