generator-react-gulp-browserify Build Status

Yeoman generator for facebook's React library - Integrate with gulp and browserify.

What's new?

  • Added watchify support
  • We use browserify extension instead of gulp extension
  • Autorun
    bower install
    npm install
    by default

What's inside?


  • Gulp
  • Bower
  • jQuery (optional)
  • Browserify
  • Reactify - (removed)
  • Babelify Help to transform JSX (consider to use babelify later)
  • Watchify support! (Sourcemap also!)
  • livereload (BrowserSync)
  • jshintrc file (although eslint is much better)

To be added

  • React Bootstrap instead of Sass Bootstrap

Optional: and some should not be used except for compatibility

  • Sass with Compass
  • Bootstrap - Twitter Bootstrap's official Sass version
  • Modernizr
  • Jade for HTML templates (deprecated used React JSX instead)
  • CoffeeScript for JavaScript (deprecated use React JSX instead)
  • Jest for unit tests

Environment requirements

  • node.js 0.12 (I suggest to use nvm to manage your node environment.)
  • Sass >= 3.4 if you want to use Sass

Getting Started

$ npm install -g yo                                # Install Yeoman (if you don't have it yet)...
$ npm install -g generator-react-gulp-browserify   # ...then install this generator...
$ yo react-gulp-browserify                         # ...and run it.

If you are doing a fork

Then you need to

git clone
your fork and from there use npm link. See
git clone [email protected]//generate-react-gulp-browserify
cd generate-react-gulp-browserify
npm link

If you chose to use sass, you'll need to install it with

gem install sass
. If you find your css build results are empty, update your sass gem.

Output folders

scripts - /scripts
styles - /styles
fonts - /fonts

Now, when everything is ready, run the watch task and begin to develop your React components.

$ gulp watch

How to run test?
Currently, I prefer to run test tasks from npm. Please run this command.

$ npm test

After development, you can run this task to generate production code.

$ gulp build
