React Application Architecture for Production

By: Alan Alickovic

Overview of this book

Building large-scale applications in production can be overwhelming with the amount of tooling choices and lack of cohesive resources. To address these challenges, this hands-on guide covers best practices and web application development examples to help you build enterprise-ready applications with React in no time. Throughout the book, you’ll work through a real-life practical example that demonstrates all the concepts covered. You’ll learn to build modern frontend applications—built from scratch and ready for production. Starting with an overview of the React ecosystem, the book will guide you in identifying the tools available to solve complex development challenges. You’ll then advance to building APIs, components, and pages to form a complete frontend app. The book will also share best practices for testing, securing, and packaging your app in a structured way before finally deploying your app with scalability in mind. By the end of the book, you’ll be able to efficiently build production-ready applications by following industry practices and expert tips.

Benefits of having a good application architecture

Every application uses some architecture, even without thinking about it. It might have been chosen randomly and might not be the right one for its needs and requirements, but still, every application does have an architecture.

That’s why being mindful of the proper architecture at the beginning is essential for every project. Let’s define a couple of reasons why:

  • A good foundation for the project
  • Easier project management
  • Increased development speed and productivity
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Better product quality

It is worth noting that all applications are prone to requirement changes, so it is not always possible to predict everything upfront. However, we should be mindful of the architecture from the start. We will discuss these reasons in detail in the following sections.

A good foundation for the project

Every building should be built on solid foundations to remain resilient to...
