The web's most popular front-end template for building web applications with React, Relay, and GraphQL.


  • Optimized for serverless deployment to CDN edge locations (Cloudflare Workers)
  • HTML page rendering (SSR) at CDN edge locations, all ~100 points on Lighthouse
  • Hot module replacement during local development using React Refetch
  • Pre-configured with CSS-in-JS styling using Emotion.js
  • Pre-configured with code quality tools: ESLint, Prettier, TypeScript, Jest, etc.
  • Pre-configured with VSCode code snippets and other VSCode settings
  • The ongoing design and development is supported by these wonderful companies:

Tech Stack


Getting Started

  • Clone the repo
    git clone -o seed -b main --single-branch https://github.com/kriasoft/react-starter-kit.git
  • Install project dependencies — yarn install
  • Launch the app — yarn start, it will become available at http://localhost:3000

IMPORTANT: Ensure that VSCode is using the workspace versions of TypeScript and ESLint.


  • yarn start — Launches the app in development mode on http://localhost:3000
  • yarn update-schema — Update GraphQL API schema by running an introspection query
  • yarn relay — Updates GraphQL fragments used in the code
  • yarn build — Compiles and bundles the app for deployment
  • yarn lint — Validate code using ESLint
  • yarn tsc — Validate code using TypeScript compiler
  • yarn test — Run unit tests with Jest, Supertest
  • yarn deploy — Deploys the app to Cloudflare

How to Deploy

Ensure that client-side application settings for test (QA) and prod (production) environments are up-to-date found in the config.ts file, as well as Cloudflare account credentials found in the .env file:

# Cloudflare
# https://dash.cloudflare.com/
# https://developers.cloudflare.com/api/tokens/create

Compile and deploy the app by running:

$ yarn build
$ yarn deploy [--env #0]

Where --env argument is the target environment, e.g. yarn deploy --env=prod.

How to Update

  • yarn set version latest — Bump Yarn to the latest version
  • yarn upgrade-interactive — Update Node.js modules (dependencies)
  • yarn pnpify --sdk vscode — Update TypeScript, ESLint, and Prettier settings in VSCode
