Blaze React (devel)

Blaze React is a Meteor package which give you templates for React in a familiar Blaze API (giving you helpers, events, onRendered, onCreated etc) with a subset of Spacebars (aka Meteor flavored Handlebars).

Why React? – Well it gives us faster pageloads, SEO without Spiderable, accessibility for users without JavaScript and general improvements in page rendering speed.

Why a Blaze/Spacebars API? – Well it's way easier to learn and get started with, can't argue against that right (see examples below)?


meteor add timbrandin:blaze-react

Getting started

Currently this project is in flux until we have a preview-release, partly due to the announcement from MDG in developing a similar package that builds templates for React, but we think we can give this to you earlier than within a few months and with support for most of Blaze 1 features and Spacebars.

XXX Add example code to get started.
