  • Every route is completely rendered into a .html page with renderToString.
  • Deferred script loading, so the browser can render the html without waiting for the js bundle first.
  • Hash is added to every asset's filename, so you can cache all assets forever.
  • Title, Meta and other SEO tags with react-helmet.
  • SEO friendly, no JavaScript required to view a page.

Getting Started

Fork the repo, install the node modules and run the dev server:

$ npm install
$ npm start

Open http://localhost:3000 & have fun. 🐒


Set your website in package.json and generate all the static files with npm run build. Then upload the contents of the build/ folder to your hosting solution of choice. Finish!

You can also check out the production build on your local machine using http-server:

$ npm install -g http-server
$ cd build
$ http-server


My site is not working properly on Amazon S3:
Make sure you define paths with trailing slashes, like <Route path="about/">.

My site is not working properly on Github Pages:
Make sure you define paths without trailing slashes, like <Route path="about">.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
