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.

Configuring CI/CD for Testing and Deployment

Our application is finally ready to go to production and meet its first users. We have built its features and implemented all the required checks, such as linting, testing, and so on, which will give us the confidence that the application code is working correctly.

However, currently, all those checks must be executed on our local machine. Whenever we want to push a new feature to production, we need to run all the scripts and then redeploy the application manually, which is a very tedious process.

In this chapter, we will learn what CI/CD is. Then, we will learn what GitHub Actions is and what are the main parts of a GitHub Actions pipeline. We will then learn how to create a CI/CD pipeline that will automate the verification and deployment of the application to Vercel.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • What is CI/CD?
  • Using GitHub Actions
  • Configuring the pipeline for testing
  • Configuring the...
