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.

Setup and Project Structure Overview

In the previous chapter, we looked at all the challenges when building a React application and some great solutions that can help us handle them. We also planned out how our application should work and what tools we should use.

In this chapter, we will look at the project structure and the setup tools that make a good baseline for our project.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Next.js application overview
  • TypeScript setup overview and usage
  • ESLint setup overview
  • Prettier setup overview
  • Pre-committing checks setup overview
  • Project structure overview

By the end of this chapter, we will have a good understanding of the tools we will be using for the project setup and the feature-based project structure to make organizing our code more manageable.
