Facebook’s React powers an increasing amount of sites. There is a good reason for this. It simplifies frontend development greatly. Combined with Webpack, a bundling tool, you have a powerful frontend development environment in your hands.

SurviveJS – Webpack and React shows you how to build a simple Kanban application based on these technologies. During the process you will learn to:

  • Set up a Webpack based development and production environment. You will learn to get most out of react-hot-loader and Babel for development.
  • Improve the quality of your code by using ESLint and friends to spot possible mistakes earlier.
  • Get into the React mindset while learning the basics of Alt, an implementation of Flux Application Architecture.
  • Style your React application in various emerging ways.
  • Implement drag and drop for your application using React DnD.

In addition the Leanpub edition contains exclusive chapters showing you how to:
