Suggestion: Meteor create-react-app


#1

Here is a suggestion for an upcoming Meteor release:

meteor create-react-app

…creating a react/react router/ssr-ready Meteor app.

And how about:

meteor create-react-app --apollo

…creating the same thing plus setup for Apollo client/server.

Just a thought!

  1. I desperately need built-in scss support that works reliably across Meteor releases and does not require quirks like symlinks to include scss files contained in /node_modules. The guys behind fourseven:scss are doing an awesome job to keep up with stuff, but too often a Meteor release upgrade broke everything. So I would love to see scss as an officially supported feature, just like less.

  2. An officially supported accounts package for React.

(why did you change the title?)


#3

You can already do this! (since Meteor 1.8.0.2) with:

meteor create --react

An Apollo one would be useful though.

There’s also a few great community scaffolds like Vulcan and Pup

I’ve never had to use symlinks for sass files… I use bootstrap-sass on the regular and have no issues importing with the suggested @import "{}/node_modules/bootstrap/scss/bootstrap.scss"; syntax.


#5

Interesting. The fourseven:scss states explicitly that this is not possible anymore.

Working flawlessly for me with the latest version running on Meteor 1.8.1.

Cool, good to know! Will try it out.
