This article will take about 1 minute to read.

Currently, I’m working on a relatively small pet project. While setting it up, I decided to extract a webpack boilerplate from it.

As whole JS community is moving really fast, I found very hard to set everything up using Webpack 1.x. One package would ask to update the other, that would break the third one, then that one… and so on.

Luckily, I was able to set everything up using Webpack 2. It is still in beta, but I had no problems so far.

You can find the boilerplate on GitHub.

Universal may be added at some point.


This boilerplate is a complete, but minimal React application. It includes reducers (redux), actions (sync and async), routing, SASS… My goal was to be ready immediately after cloning the repo (and running npm i).

My plan is to reuse this as much as possible.

It will updated so make sure you follow the documentation on GitHub.
