A sample Phoenix+React project that actually works.
This repo is originally made as a supplement to this guide. Feel free to use this as a base for your Phoenix+React project, however, everything would make sense if you read the original guide first, so probably go do that first. Don't worry, I'll wait.
Phoenix 1.4 ships with Webpack by default, therefore making the setup much more straightforward than before. The long-overdue rewrite has been finished, and has also been made up-to-date following recent updates to Phoenix. The sample repo has also been updated.
This repo contains a Phoenix app hooked up to a React frontend, which includes a basic example of your typical React app.
Bundling is done with webpack 4. The webpack team have done a great job to improve optimisation efforts as well as reducing the amount of configuration time required in version 4.
Yarn is used as our package manager. It features a robust lockfile which ensures your dependencies are identical across different devices. This is optional, but I recommend it for your own sanity.
npmif you want, but it's for your own sanity.
To install dependencies and configure your project:
assets/directory and run
npm install) to install Node.js dependencies.
config/files according to your needs.
mix ecto.setup(this runs
mix run priv/repo/seeds.exsin order)
To start your Phoenix server:
Now you can visit
localhost:4000 from your browser.
