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.

In this chapter, we learned how to bootstrap the frontend application for our project. We started by learning about React and its advantages. Then, we learned how to create a React project and added the required dependencies to support the task manager features. Next, we created a common layout to provide a consistent look and feel for our application. Finally, we created an initial dummy page to put everything together and be able to see our application in action.

You should now have a good overview of React and the required dependencies to be able to bootstrap a functional frontend application from scratch. In the next chapter, we’ll set up the frontend application so that we can consume the secured backend HTTP API. We’ll create a login page to initialize the authentication flow, and the required logic to protect some of the URLs and routes.
