Boilerplate for setting up webpack 2 configuration with hot reloading, babel for es6 modules, react + redux.

Project description


Boilerplate for setting up webpack 2 configuration with hot reloading, babel for es6 modules, react + redux.

Getting Started

Download `cookiecutter` to a global python path

$ pip install cookiecutter

In your project directory run

$ cookiecutter

Answer the prompts then `cd` into your newly created project directory.

Install npm packages

$ npm install

Start the server

$ npm start

You will have a React / Redux counter app running with redux dev-tools. See the generated `` for an explanation of the react / redux project structure.

Integrating into existing projects

You can chain this into an existing cookiecutter project by installing via the projects `./hooks/` file or just installing it via the command line.

### Using post hooks
Here is a django project post hook example that chains this through a django cookiecutter project.

from cookiecutter.main import cookiecutter

replay=False, overwrite_if_exists=True, output_dir='../',
checkout=None, no_input=True, extra_context={
'project_name': '{{ cookiecutter.project_name }}',
'repo_name': '{{ cookiecutter.repo_name }}',
'repo_owner': 'hzdg',
'static_root': '{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/static/{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}',
'local_output_path': '{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/static/{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/bundles/',
'production_output_path': '{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/static/{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/dist/',
'author_name': '{{ cookiecutter.author_name }}',
'email': '{{ }}',
'description': '{{ cookiecutter.description }}',
'version': '{{ cookiecutter.version }}',
'existing_project': 'y'

The flag `existing_project` will move/remove some files and dependencies and also add supporting configurations for a django project.

### Using command line
Just make sure you use the `--overwrite-if-exists` [ or `-f`] flag so cookiecutter can work within your existing project structure. You will also probably want to point to your existing projects parent directory and make sure you use the same `repo_name` as the project directory so your `package.json` files are installed at the project root.

cookiecutter -f -output-dir ../
