Typescene RealWorld Example App

RealWorld Frontend

Typescene codebase containing real world examples (CRUD, auth, advanced patterns, etc) that adheres to the RealWorld spec and API.

Demo (TBD)    RealWorld

This codebase was created to demonstrate a fully fledged fullstack application built with Typescene including CRUD operations, authentication, routing, pagination, and more. Please submit bug fixes via pull requests & feedback via issues.

Note: The Typescene framework was made for desktop and mobile-like apps, so this RealWorld implementation behaves strictly like a Single Page Application (SPA). There is no server-side rendering, and all code is bundled in a single JS file by design. While you shouldn't implement a ‘Medium clone’ using Typescene, it's still an insteresting demo to show how Typescene works.

Getting started

To get the frontend running locally:

  • Clone this repo
  • npm install to install all required (dev) dependencies
  • npm start to start the Webpack development server
  • Open a browser to view the result on localhost port 8080
  • Please star typescene/typescene and follow @typescene to show your support!

If you get stuck, Twitter is the right place to ask questions right now. Looking forward to your feedback.


  • Add unit tests — we'll likely be able to test the app (at least activities) in Node rather than the browser, by using a different entry point and special Application instance. Stay tuned.
  • Fix some of the responsive elements, possibly using CSS.
  • Improve performance of the main articles list.

A note on SEO: Typescene does not support server-side rendering, which limits the theoretical SEO effectiveness of the resulting website. Typescene was purpose built for desktop/mobile-like interactive apps rather than blogs and websites so please don't expect this to work any time soon 😄
