To get the frontend running locally:
npm installto install all req'd dependencies
npm startto start the local server (this project uses create-react-app)
Local web server will use port 4100 instead of standard React's port 3000 to prevent conflicts with some backends like Node or Rails. You can configure port in scripts section of
package.json: we use cross-env to set environment variable PORT for React scripts, this is Windows-compatible way of setting environment variables.
Alternatively, you can add
.env file in the root folder of project to set environment variables (use PORT to change webserver's port). This file will be ignored by git, so it is suitable for API keys and other sensitive stuff. Refer to dotenv and React documentation for more details. Also, please remove setting variable via script section of
dotenv never override variables if they are already set.
For convenience, we have a live API server running at https://conduit.productionready.io/api for the application to make requests against. You can view the API spec here which contains all routes & responses for the server.
The source code for the backend server (available for Node, Rails and Django) can be found in the main RealWorld repo.
If you want to change the API URL to a local server, simply edit
src/agent.js and change
API_ROOT to the local server's URL (i.e.
The example application is a social blogging site (i.e. a Medium.com clone) called "Conduit". It uses a custom API for all requests, including authentication. You can view a live demo over at https://redux.productionready.io/
