How do I get the server-side React template to display actual React?
[deleted]

Don't get me wrong

I love the idea of server-side React. I'm just wondering if there's a way to keep all the benefits of server-side React such as server-side rendering while rendering it as actual React (the kind my devtools extension will pick up on.)

You can get the react extension to get react devtools, but otherwise, its all compiled and minified.

I think I get what you mean, but at the same time super confused xD.

Anyways, I think you're asking about React for client side. Server-side react is strictly for server side since it renders and spits out html. Use a server like Express, CRA with the client option, and a templating engine and maybe you'll have what you're looking for ¯\(ツ)/¯.
