The fastest React.js Starter Template in the world
amasad (3344)

If you've ever used React.js on you probably know how painful it is -- it is slow to start up and the filewatching-updating cycle makes it buggy to code in.

I've been working on a super fast React.js template that feels native to, that means:

  • starts up instantly
  • it's small and doesn't take up disk space quota (13mb vs 300mb)
  • hit run and it refreshes the webview
  • it compiles really quickly and works both in dev and prod the same

Here it is, let me know what you think

Does it work on nextjs? Plus I don't really see people ever make react projects on we need more react projects

@PDanielY I think because it kinda sucked. This will make it better.

It doesn't work on nextjs yet but I think they're working on it. I got in touch with them.

As an alternative to this, you could create a regular HTML/CSS/JS repl with the React CDN links and htm.

@theangryepicbanana is working on highlighting, so I guess they could add that to their list if it isn't
