React Native Hot Redux Starter


The React Native Hot Redux Starter is a deprecated starter kit for building React Native apps. It incorporates hot code reloading using Redux and the react-native-webpack-server. This kit was designed to help developers familiarize themselves with Flux using Redux and implement best practices. However, it should be noted that hot reloading is now built directly into React Native, so this starter kit may no longer be necessary.


  • Hot Code Reloading: The starter kit utilizes the react-native-webpack-server to enable hot code reloading. This allows developers to see the changes they make in the source code reflect instantly in the app without having to restart the app.
  • Redux Integration: Redux, a popular state management library, is integrated into the starter kit. This enables the app to manage its state in a predictable and centralized manner.
  • Flux Architecture: The kit focuses on teaching developers about Flux architecture by implementing it with Redux. This architecture allows for a unidirectional data flow that simplifies state management in the app and makes it easier to understand and debug.


  1. Install React Native: First, you need to have React Native installed on your computer. Follow the React Native installation guide to set up the necessary dependencies.
  2. Clone the Starter Kit: Clone or download the React Native Hot Redux Starter repository from GitHub.
  3. Install Dependencies: Open the terminal and navigate to the cloned repository. Run the following command to install the required dependencies:
npm install
  1. Run the App: To run the app on an iOS simulator, open the Xcode project file in the repository and press Cmd+R. If it's your first run, you may receive an error message. Dismiss the error and press Cmd+D. Click on the "Debug in Chrome" button. Once the Chrome debugger is open and connected, press Cmd+R in the iOS simulator to reload the app.


The React Native Hot Redux Starter is a deprecated starter kit that aimed to assist developers in building React Native apps using Redux and the react-native-webpack-server for hot code reloading. It focuses on teaching developers about Flux architecture and implementing it using Redux. However, with hot reloading now built into React Native, this starter kit may no longer be necessary. It provided features such as hot code reloading, Redux integration, and Flux architecture implementation.

React Native

React Native is a framework for building mobile applications using React and JavaScript. It enables developers to write once and deploy to multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, and the web, while providing a native app-like experience to users.


Redux is a state management library for JavaScript apps that provides a predictable and centralized way to manage application state. It enables developers to write actions and reducers that update the state in response to user interactions, server responses, and other events, and can be used with a variety of front-end frameworks and back-end technologies.


Webpack is a popular open-source module bundler for JavaScript applications that bundles and optimizes the code and its dependencies for production-ready deployment. It can also be used to transform other types of assets such as CSS, images, and fonts.
