Tools for helping integrate ReactJS into a Django project.
The current iteration of this tool adds a simple management command to your Django project that will build, copy to a Django static directory and rename accordingly.
To start run
pip install django-react-tools
then add 'reacttools' to your django project's list of apps.
next in settings, set where to find the React project:
REACT_PROJECT_DIRECTORY = "/path/to/project"
The default destination location is the Static Root directory for your Django project. You can change it by modifying the setting variable.
REACT_DJANGO_DEST = settings.STATIC_ROOT
To run all you need to do is call the management command.
> ./manage.py collectreact
By default the React project is buit using "yarn build". If you want to change the command you can:
REACT_BUILD_COMMAND = "npm build"
If you want to skip the build you can run the comman this way:
> ./manage.py collectreact --no-build
