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.

In this chapter, we learned how to test our application, thus making it ready for production.

We started by learning about unit testing by implementing unit tests for our notifications store.

Since integration tests are much more valuable because they give more confidence that something is working properly, we used these tests to test the pages.

Finally, we created end-to-end tests for public and dashboard flows, where we tested the entire functionality of each flow.

In the next chapter, we will learn how to prepare and release our application to production. We will use these tests and integrate them within our CI/CD pipeline, where we will not allow the application to be released to production if any of the tests fail. This will keep our users more satisfied as there is less chance of bugs ending up in production.
