The fastest React.js Starter Template in the world

If you've ever used React.js on Repl.it 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 Repl.it, 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
