⚠️ No new changes will be made to this box! Truffle no longer actively maintains official boxes that encourage production use of their included contracts. We encourage you to take a look at other boxes in our listing that offer authentication.

React, Redux and Authentication Truffle Box

In addition to Webpack and React, this box adds: react-router, redux and redux-auth-wrapper for authentication powered by a smart contract. Great for building your own auth system.


  1. Install Truffle globally.

    npm install -g truffle
  2. Download the box. This also takes care of installing the necessary dependencies.

    truffle unbox react-auth
  3. Run the development console.

    truffle develop
  4. Compile and migrate the smart contracts. Note inside the development console we don't preface commands with truffle.

  5. Run the webpack server for front-end hot reloading (outside the development console). Smart contract changes must be manually recompiled and migrated.

    // Serves the front-end on http://localhost:3000
    npm run start
  6. Truffle can run tests written in Solidity or JavaScript against your smart contracts. Note the command varies slightly if you're in or outside of the development console.

    // If inside the development console.
    // If outside the development console..
    truffle test
  7. Jest is included for testing React components. Compile your contracts before running Jest, or you may receive some file not found errors.

    // Run Jest outside of the development console for front-end component tests.
    npm run test
  8. To build the application for production, use the build command. A production build will be in the build_webpack folder.

    npm run build


  • How do I use this with the EthereumJS TestRPC?

    It's as easy as modifying the config file! Check out our documentation on adding network configurations. Depending on the port you're using, you'll also need to update line 34 of src/util/web3/getWeb3.js.

  • Why is there both a truffle.js file and a truffle-config.js file?

    truffle-config.js is a copy of truffle.js for compatibility with Windows development environments. Feel free to it if it's irrelevant to your platform.

  • Where is my production build?

    The production build will be in the build_webpack folder. This is because Truffle outputs contract compilations to the build folder.

  • Where can I find more documentation?

    This box is a marriage of Truffle and a React setup created with create-react-app. Either one would be a great place to start!
