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.

Planning our application

Now, let’s apply the principles we just learned about to a real-world scenario where we will be planning the application that we will be building.

What are we building?

We will be building an application that allows organizations to manage their job boards. The organization admins can create job postings for their organizations, and the candidates can apply for the jobs.

We will be building an MVP version of the application with the minimum set of features, but it should be extendable for more features in the future. At the end of this book, we will cover the features that the final application could have, but to keep things simple, we will be focusing on the MVP version.

Proper application planning starts with gathering the requirements of the application.

Application requirements

The application has two types of application requirements:

  • Functional requirements
  • Non-functional requirements
