Starting a project with the boilerplate module¶
The react-dash-boilerplate project provides a starter project and a development environment for doing react-dash development. It’s a good place to start.
Make sure that you have npm installed on your system
Install the react-dash-boilerplate project and its dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/NuCivic/react-dash-boilerplate.git cd react-dash-boilerplate npm install npm run init npm run start
Visit http://localhost:5000 on your system - if everything was successful, you should see an example dashboard
Look at our Developer’s Guide for next steps to customize your dash!
Run the example project that ships with the react-dash project¶
If you can’t get the boilerplate project to install, just install the react-dash library and use the example project as a starting place.
- Make sure that you have npm installed on your system
- Set up an npm project
npm init npm install react-dash npm run start
- Look in the
examples/folder for the project source
