React headstart for busy people

Hi reader! If you're building the same React initial config over and over this may help.


It started as a way to simplify my development process but I figured out it's time to publish and document what I do so... Here we are!


This boilerplate has what I consider the minimun structure for any react application: Wepack, Babel, React, Styled Components and ESlint.
Github repo:


  • Default project > master branch
  • SASS project > sass branch
  • PostCSS project > postcss branch

How to use it


git clone
npm install
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


npm run dev /* Runs webpack dev server and live reloading */
npm run start /* Runs webpack in production mode with optimizations */
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


Webpack dev server running


If you're using this boilerplate and encounter any issue, please let me know!


I've just added SASS and PostCSS support!
