Redux Auth Starter: A Zero Config CRA Template

Redux auth starter is preconfigured Create React App Template with Zero Configuration by running a single command.

What is Redux Auth Starter?

Redux auth starter is a Create React App (CRA) Template, Which is preconfigured with all needed dependencies and set up to build a scalable SaaS application by running a single command.

Why not Create React App?

If we need to develop a react app, Most of us start to develop a react app with Create React App (CRA). CRA has many features like instead reload, optimized bundle, ships with single dependency, ESlint, Testing and Easy to maintain.
But are these features are enough to build a Scalable SaaS application?
Let’s see

For a Basic SaaS app, we need to access API, There will be multiple components, Local state and global state, Authentication, Routes, Good UI and UX.

When using CRA we need to configure the above things manually and this configuration also requires more time, So we need to do this every time when we develop a new app from scratch. To overcome these drawbacks, I have developed redux-auth-starter a CRA template. Where you can overcome the above things by running a single command.

Advantages of Redux Auth Starter

1. Preconfigured store, basic actions and reducers for authentication with Redux.
