Tableau Integration Using React Starterkit with react-script-loader

This react starterkit provides a prepared development environment based on gulp, stylus and webpack. The internal data flow is handled with Reflux and the routing is managed with the React-Router.
I added react-script-loader to the node module dependencies to enable use of tableau js files.

Get the React Starterkit

$ git clone && cd react-starterkit


Install all dependencies.

$ npm install


Builds the application and starts a webserver with livereload. By default the webserver starts at port 1337.
You can define a port with $ gulp --port 3333.

$ gulp


Builds a minified version of the application in the dist folder.

$ gulp build --type production


We use jest to test our application.<br />
You can run the tests that are defined under app/scripts/__tests__ with

$ npm test

In order to test files that are using the react-router we had to add stubRouterContext.jsx which we found here.


Javascript entry file: app/server.js <br />


We are using Reflux, which is an implemantion of the Flux Architecture. If you want to read more about Reflux, check out the readme of the reflux git repo.


The routing is done with the react-router. It's especially great for SPA's. We would recommend to read the guide to get an overview of the router features.

ES6 with babel

We are working with the webpack babel loader in order to load our .js/.jsx files. Babel allows you to use ES6 features like class, arrow functions and much more.


CSS entry file: app/stylus/main.styl<br />


As you can see we are using stylus to preprocess our .styl files. If you didn't work with a css preprocessor before the stylus page is a good starting point to get to know what stylus can do for you.<br /><br />
If you want to use third-party CSS you just include it via @import 'path/to/your/third-party-styles.css' at the top of the main.styl file.

Webpack Hints

You can find the webpack configuration in the webpack.config.js file.
We use the babel-loader in order to load .jsx and .js files via webpack. If it's possible install all your dependencies with NPM. Packages installed with NPM can be used like this:

var moduleXYZ = require('moduleXYZ');

You can find all loaders in this list.
