One thing I kept hearing as part of the requirements:
I don’t have a production experience with React, however, IMHO if a developer has done a bit of JS development in the past I don’t think onboarding is rocket science.
I’m currently working on a couple of personal projects and thought of using React at some stage but instead I’ve decided to do hackathon on a simple React project and see where it would take me, I didn’t set a deadline.
- Simple RSS news feed reader
- Setup a custom domain for github pages
- Setup DNS CNAME under my mindginative.com domain, via AWS Route53
- Build and deployment scripts
- Use Material design
- Development and production test environment
The list above looks daunting BUT this is 2017! this isn’t 1999 - 6 CDs of VB6 MSDN.
On building “NZ,ey!” RSS news reader
The boilerplate project Create React App, did most of the gory details for me while I sat down and work on the first iteration of the web app.
I think I managed to get up and running the web app from nothing to a working version within 12 hours.
My take on React? onboarding is damn easy
