Getting Started

Install Yeoman

npm install -g yo

Yeoman Generators

To install generator-base-backbone from npm, run:

npm install -g generator-base-reactjs

//or:
sudo npm install -g generator-base-reactjs

Finally, initiate the generator:

yo base-reactjs

If you have error on install try to update dependences manually:

sudo npm update
bower update

Requeriments

NodeJS

For update npm

sudo npm install npm -g

Bower

npm install -g bower

Sass

sudo gem install sass

Documentation:

Usage

Develop code on folder /src

/src
	/data
	/images
	/scripts
		/components
	/styles
	/templates

Compile code

Use grunt task to compile code and deploy webapp

grunt serve

THis will launch server on port 9000

http://localhost:9000/

Distribute code is compileded on forder /dist

/dist
	/css
	/data
	/images
	/js
	/lib
	/templates

Styling

Sass files (*.sass, *.scss) must be located on /src/styles folder root.

  • Grunt task sass.js will process the files into CSS files to folder /src/styles/css.
  • Grunt task copy.js will copy all CSS files into /src/styles/css to folder /dist/css for ditribution.
  • You can also create and edit CSS files in /src/styles/css.

Templating with Jade and Reactjs-Template

  • The NodeJS template engine JADE is implemented. Jade files (*.jade) must be located on /templates folder root.

Example:

// src/templates/footer.jade

footer
	.row
		p @2015

Compiled:

// src/templates/rt/footer.rt

<footer><div class="row"><p>@2015</p></div></footer>
  • Grunt task reactTemplates will process the files into templates files.

Example:

// src/templates/rt/footer.rt.js

var footerRT = function () {
	return React.createElement('footer', {}, React.createElement('div', { 'className': 'row' }, React.createElement('p', {}, '@2015')));
};
  • Grunt task copy.js will copy all CSS files into /templates/html to folder /dist/templates for ditribution.

  • Grunt task replace.js will modify the script to implement RequireJS function.

Example:

// dist/templates/footer.rt.js

define(['react'], function(React) {
	return footerRT = function () {
		return React.createElement('footer', {}, React.createElement('div', { 'className': 'row' }, React.createElement('p', {}, '@2015')));
	};
});
  • You can now insert templates into your components

Example:

// src/scripts/components/footer.js

define(['react', '../../../../templates/footer.rt'], function(React, template) {
	'use strict';
	return React.createClass({
		displayName: 'footer',
		render: template
	});
});
  • You can also create components without templates

Example:

// src/scripts/components/footer.js

define(['react'], function(React) {
	'use strict';
	return React.createClass({
		displayName: 'footer',
		render: function() {
			return (
				<footer>
					<div className="row">
						<p>@2015</p>
					</div>
				</footer>
			)
		}
	});
});

Routing

Routing is made with Page.js micro client-side router. Router is loaded in Main.js file:

// src/scripts/main.js

'use strict';
require.config({
	paths: {
		text: '../lib/text',
		react: '../lib/react',
		jsx: '../lib/jsx',
		react_dom: '../lib/react-dom',
		page: '../lib/page/page',
		underscore: '../lib/lodash.min',
		jquery: '../lib/jquery.min',
		bootstrap: '../lib/bootstrap.min',
		router: './router'
	}
});
window.app = {};
require(['react', 'jquery', 'underscore'], function(React, $, _) {
	require(['react_dom', , 'bootstrap'], function(ReactDOM, Bootstrap) {
		require(['router']);
	});
});

Place routing path in file router.js

// src/scripts/router.js

define(['page', 'react', 'react_dom'], function(Page, React, ReactDOM) {
	'use strict';
	Page.base('');
	Page('/', index);
	Page();

	function index(ctx) {
		if (ctx.hash !== '') {
			Page(ctx.hash);
		} else {
			landing();
		}
	}

	function landing() {
		loadComponent('../js/components/landing');
	}

	function loadComponent(path) {
		require([path], function(Component) {
			ReactDOM.render(<Component/>, document.getElementById('app'));
		});
	}
});

Page(ctx.hash); in index function is needed for resolve inssue with page reload with hash...

A .htcaccess file is needed for remove the /#/ hash from urls:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^/]+)/?$ /#/$1 [L,NC]

Documentation:

Dependencies

Grunt task copy.js will read all bower.js files from /bower_components subfolders, and copy the file path from main node, like:

//bower_components/requirejs/bower.json
{
  ...
  "main": "require.js",
  ...
} 

And put this files into folder /dist/lib/.

If any installed dependency has no bower.json file (like lodash) you must edit the copy.js task to manually copy it:

grunt.config.set('copy', {
	...
	lodash_: {
		cwd: 'bower_components/lodash/dist',
		src: 'lodash.js',
		dest: 'dist/lib/',
		expand: true
	},
	...
});

If an unnecesaary file is copied (like boostrap.less):

//bower_components/bootstrap/bower.json
{
  ...
  "main": [
	"less/bootstrap.less",
	"dist/js/bootstrap.js"
  ],
  ...
} 

you can delete it with the clean-dist.js task:

//grunt/clean-dist.js
grunt.registerTask('clean-dist', 'Clean dist folder', function() {
	...
	grunt.config.set('clean.files.src', ['dist/lib/bootstrap.less']);
	...
});
