A boilerplate for playing around with react, redux and react-router with the help of webpack.
- a working example of a filterable table which you can play around with (look below).
- ES6 – 7 Support with Babel
- Redux dev tools to help you keep track of the app’s state
- hot module replacement support so you can change modules or react components without having to reload the browser
- a webpack production config so you can build the app and make it ready for production
- Sass support, just import your styles wherever you need them
- eslint to keep your js readable
- much more…
Run the app
Once running, if you want to hide the redux dev monitor:
Yes, it takes a while to load the first time you open the app.
Is the hot module replacement really working?
Yup! Take a look:
The app updates without the browser having to reload. You don’t lose state!
Build the app
npm run build
This will build the app into the “dist” directory in the root of the project. It contains the index.html along with the minified assets, ready for production.
It should look something like the above image.
I don’t understand anything!
I went ahead and wrote a detailed series of posts on this project for you. I hope it helps you understand better:
Why doesn’t it have async?
To keep it unopinionated. You choose what async library you want. If you want to check out a full example with async in it, check this simple todo-app
This is the third article in a series of posts on react, redux and webpack. Others:

- Understanding a simple react, redux and react-router app in es2015, part1.
Here, we will cover the routes configuration, the actions and all the react components starting from the Root.

In this post I will show you how to build and understand a webpack config file for developing applications with react, react–router and redux. I also provide a boilerplate to start developing right away.
If you already know how to set up webpack and wish to learn more on building and understanding react apps, see this post. It includes setting up hot module replacement in react components.

I want to dedicate a post to show you how to set up Gulp and in particular, a set up for React v0.14 and up. I also focus on doing this in ES2015 (ECMAScript 6 or ES6). I have seen countless threads of people having trouble getting over this initial but important phase.
If you are looking to set up react with webpack, have a look at a detailed post I wrote on react + webpack. It includes things like hot module replacement.
