An all-in-one solution for creating modern React apps

Rekit is a toolkit for building scalable web applications with React, Redux and React-router. It helps you focus on business logic rather than dealing with massive libraries, patterns, configurations etc.

Rekit creates apps bootstrapped by create-react-app and uses an opinionated way to organize folder and code. It's designed to be scalable, testable and maintainable by using feature oriented architecture, one action per file pattern. This ensures application logic is well grouped and decoupled.

Rekit consists of three pieces: - Rekit App Download the latest desktop App for Mac. Windows version is coming... - Rekit Studio: A complete web IDE for React, Redux, and React Router development - Rekit CLI: A command line tool to create and manage projects, components, actions, etc.

Below is a quick demo video of how Rekit Studio works:

Rekit Demo

You can also see the live demo, but the instructions shown on the intro might be outdated:


If you are on Mac you can use the desktop app.

Install with npm:

npm install -g rekit  # Install Rekit CLI
npm install -g rekit-studio  # Install Rekit Studio

This will install the commands

to the system. Rekit is developed and tested on npm 3+ and node 6+, so this is the prerequisite for using Rekit.


Create a new application

rekit create  [--sass]
This will create a new app named
in the current directory. The
flag allows to use sass instead of default less as the CSS transpiler. After creating the app, you need to install dependencies:
cd app-name
npm install
Now, we can start Rekit Studio with:
rekit-studio -p 3040
Finally, you can open Rekit Studio at http://localhost:3040/. At the bottom in the "Scripts" tab you can find buttons to start, build, and test your app.
