  • v4.0.0

    April 18, 2019

    v4.0: "The One With Hooks (And Much More)" Edition

    React Boilerplate v4.0 is out and it's a doozy! Here are the highlights:

    • React has added many new features and it's time for React Boilerplate to embrace them.
      • We now use React.lazy and Suspense for component lazy-loading instead of an external library.
      • We've added useInjectSaga and useInjectReducer hooks to manage saga and reducer injection. They're integrated into the generators and thus become the new defaults. (Should you need them, the HOCs are still there.)
      • The generators don't support classes anymore. The PureComponent vs Component choice was replaced with an option to wrap your component inside React.memo.
    • After much deliberation, Immutable.js is finally gone. We've added Immer instead. With it, we can write very concise and readable reducers while sticking to native JavaScript data structures.
    • 🚀 Following the release of React Hooks, it's become even clearer that react-testing-library is now the industry-standard for React DOM testing. Workarounds for the incompatibilities between enzyme and styled-components are gone and we can now write leaner and more meaningful tests.

    📚 There are many more changes to our documentation, internals and general project setup. You can find a full changelog below.

    Huge thanks to @Mensae, @gretzky, @jwinn and everyone who helped review or submit PRs! If I've forgotten your contribution in the credits below, please let me know.

  • v3.7.0

    October 25, 2018

    🆕 News

    🚀 Welcome to a new React Boilerplate release with improvements aplenty, bug fixes and major dependency upgrades! Big thanks to @gretzky, @justingreenberg, @jwinn and everyone who helped review and submit PRs for this release!

    ⬆️ For existing projects, the only way to upgrade from 3.6.0 is to manually apply the changes from #2403 to your project. Please be careful when doing so as it isn't officially supported and could break things on your end.

    ⚡️ Next steps will include re-thinking immutability in the store (RFC @ #2092), re-organizing docs, saga improvements, smart bundling and plenty more. Please keep the PRs coming. And if you're up for it, remember that you can use the dev branch to test all the latest updates and report bugs!

    Main

  • v3.6.0

    June 21, 2018

    🆕 News

    🚀 Major version updates are finally here! It's been awhile, but we're a small team that's been pushing this for awhile. Thanks to several users' PRs, we were able to cherry-pick a lot from the dev branch to push this release out. We decided because of the amount of dependencies that needed to be updated- we would overshoot some of the changes made on the dev branch and just grab the most pressing ones.

    Next steps for us will be revisiting the dev branch, revisiting outstanding PRs and RFCs (like Immutable), and also plugging away at a create-react-app spinoff for react-boilerplate.

    Main

    • ⬆️ Upgrade Webpack to v4 (@julienben @stern-shawn)
      • Syntax / function changes (mode, optimization, etc.)
      • Remove webpack loader syntax from main app
      • Better SVG handling
    • ⬆️ Upgrade Redux to v4 (@gretzky)
    • ⬆️ Upgrade React to v16 (@blling @gretzky)
    • ⬆️ Upgrade Enzyme to v3 (@blling @gretzky)
      • Add in new Adapter, as required
      • Minor Jest config tweaks to include new Enzyme setup config
    • 💅 Upgrade styled-components to v3 (@julienben)
      • Reconfigure Jest snapshot testing for styled-components (@gretzky)
    • Added support for node v9, v8 (@julienben)
      • Removed support for node v6
    • Add Prettier (@julienben)
    • ⬆️ Upgrade ESLint to v4 (@julienben)
    • Add stylelint and stylelint config (@julienben)

    ⚡️ Other Updates

  • v3.5.0

    🍱 The eagle has landed 🎉

    As always, thank you to all of our awesome contributors, community and team members!!

    🆕 News

    🚀 So, a few things have changed in the JS ecosystem since the original release of React Boilerplate, and there was a discussion in #1776 around the it's future. TLDR; we had two incompatible PRs — one for server-side rendering, and another for react-router v4. The community decided that we would keep our dependencies up to date (upgrade react-router) and establish a clear mission for React Boilerplate:

    🐎 React Boilerplate is a rock-solid foundation for crafting large, high-performance enterprise-grade frontend web applications that have advanced/custom requirements.

    • Static output designed for CDN and edge caches
    • Extreme Developer Ergonomics
      • Parallelized Tests
      • DLL manifest in development for blazing rebuilds
      • Scaffolding tools
    • 👍 Pre-baked i18n support
    • Low level tooling that gives developer complete control

    👷 We may include SSR in a future version, but for now this is our focus... create-react-app and next.js are doing an awesome job and strongly recommend these projects for most use cases.

    💥 Breaking

    • ⬆️ Upgrade React Router to v4.x.x (@anuraaga, @Dattaya, et al)
