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.

Whenever something happens in the application, such as a successful form submission or a failed API request, we want to notify our users about it.

We will need to create a global store that will keep track of all notifications. We want it to be global because we want to show these notifications from anywhere in the application.

For handling global states, we will be using Zustand, a state management library that is lightweight and very simple to use.

Creating the store

Let’s open the src/stores/notifications/notifications.ts file and import the dependencies we will use:

import { createStore, useStore } from 'zustand';
import { uid } from '@/utils/uid';

Then, let’s declare the notification types for the store:

export type NotificationType =
  | 'info'
  | 'warning'
  | 'success'
  | 'error';
export type Notification = {
