Base for React Components


Developing and publishing multiple React components requires a lot of work to keep them all at the same code, ops, best-practices level. Most of configs are often copy-pasted. If one project updated, for example, .eslintrc, other projects should follow to keep codebase consistent. Having growing number of components leads to a more diverged codebase that is exponentially harder to manage.


  • React module boilerplate dependencies and scripts
  • .gitignore and .npmignore
  • CircleCI config
  • ESLint config, strict version of Airbnb code style guide
  • Empty React component
  • Example
  • Tests and coverage (Tape, Isparta)
  • End-to-End tests (Nightwatch, Selenium)
