Overview of this book

React has established itself as one of the most popular and widely adopted frameworks thanks to its simple yet scalable app development abilities. Quarkus comes across as a fantastic alternative for backend development by boosting developer productivity with features such as pre-built integrations, application services, and more that bring a new, revolutionary developer experience to Java. To make the best use of both, this hands-on guide will help you get started with Quarkus and React to create and deploy an end-to-end web application. This book is divided into three parts. In the first part, you’ll begin with an introduction to Quarkus and its features, learning how to bootstrap a Quarkus project from the ground up to create a tested and secure HTTP server for your backend. The second part focuses on the frontend, showing you how to create a React project from scratch to build the application’s user interface and integrate it with the Quarkus backend. The last part guides you through creating cluster configuration manifests and deploying them to Kubernetes as well as other alternatives, such as By the end of this full stack development book, you’ll be confident in your skills to combine the robustness of both frameworks to create and deploy standalone, fully functional web applications.

Bootstrapping the React Project

In this chapter, we’ll bootstrap the frontend application for our project. We’ll start by learning about React and its main advantages and differentiation points compared to alternative frameworks. Then, we’ll learn how to create a React project from scratch and the recommended dependencies to start building a complete frontend application. Next, we’ll create a common layout for the task manager that will be shared among the task manager pages to create a consistent look and feel. Finally, we’ll create a temporary dummy page to check that all of the application’s scaffolding features work as expected.

By the end of this chapter, you should have a basic understanding of React, frontend routing, global state management, and the advantages of using a styled component library. You should also be able to bootstrap an application from scratch that leverages several libraries to offer all of these features.
