Rails React Heroku Quickstart
A quickstart guide for getting a React.js client running with a Rails API, both hosted on Heroku. Topics Covered:
- Creating a Rails API and deploying to Heroku
- Creating a React app using create-react-app and deploying to Heroku
- Configuring React app to speak to local host / Heroku instance of API automatically
This is a very quick run down so it is assumed that you have a basic understanding of Unix, Node, NPM, Rails and React. It is also assumed that you have Ruby, Node and NPM installed already.
