Note: This kit is a bit outdated now and I haven't had the time to update it properly, I'm sorry if doesn't work as it should but it might still be a good basis for your projects. I'll try to find some time and update it, in the mean time I accept pull requests (thanks for the ones some people have made btw!). Cheers
Configured starter repo to build web apps with React and ES6 modules.
- Package manager: jspm
- ES6 modules
- Web server with live reload using BrowserSync
- Unit tests: Karma, Mocha, Chai, Sinon
- Uglify JS
- CSS Autoprefixing and minification
- Clone the repo
- Install jspm
npm install -g jspm
- Install gulp
npm install -g gulp
- Gulp tasks:
gulp serveTo run the application on port 3500, watchin changes on js files (compiling jsx) and sass files (compile, autoprefix and produce sourcemaps).
gulp testShortcut to run karma, it of course can be run directly without gulp
gulp buildSame as
gulpexcept it doesn't run a server
gulp distMake a distribution copy: Bundle the application in one JS file and minify it with Uglify, compile sass files and minify them, put everything in the dist folder.
Everything in the src folder is for example purposes. Have a look to see how everything is wired (the application itself is not finished and might not be).
Why choose… ?
- ES6 modules: They're the future baby
- JSPM: Get the best of the npm and bower world with no hassle.
- Gulp: gulp won, is just better.
- Sass: sass has always been the best, node-sass brings the speed so no need for anything else.
- Karma: I like Testem too, but karma has a larger community around it and it's easy to integrate with SystemJS and jspm
- BrowserSync: Because is seriously awesome.
- Integrate rendering at compilation time for the home page (index.html), preferably still using ES6 modules (JSX transpiler doesn't support them)
- Incorporate code coverage with Istanbul (waiting on https://github.com/Workiva/karma-jspm/issues/22 from karma-jspm)
- .(Maybe) Integrate one of the many Flux implementations
- .(Maybe) Integrate a router
