React Mobx Typescript Boilerplate

A bare minimum frontend boilerplate with React 16.7, Typescript 3.2 and Webpack 4


This is a frontend boilerplate project that provides a bare minimum setup for creating React applications from scratch. It includes key technologies such as React, MobX, TypeScript, and React Router. The project focuses on simplicity and does not include additional features like server-side rendering or testing frameworks. This boilerplate is ideal for developers who want to quickly set up a React project without the need for extra complexities.


  • Typescript 3.2: Uses the latest version of TypeScript for type checking and improved developer experience.
  • React 16.7: Includes React library for building user interfaces.
  • React Router 4: Enables routing capabilities within the React application.
  • Mobx 5: Integrates Mobx for state management in React applications.
  • Mobx React: Provides bindings for Mobx and React integration.
  • TodoMVC example: Includes an example TodoMVC project to showcase the usage of the boilerplate.


To install and set up the boilerplate, follow these steps:

  1. Clone the repository:
git clone [repository-url]
  1. Navigate to the project directory:
cd [project-directory]
  1. Install the dependencies:
npm install
  1. Build the project:
npm run build
  1. Start the development server:
npm start


This frontend boilerplate is a minimalistic setup for creating React applications using technologies like TypeScript, MobX, and React Router. It offers simplicity and ease of use by excluding unnecessary features like server-side rendering and testing frameworks. With the included TodoMVC example, developers can quickly get started with building React applications from scratch. This boilerplate is licensed under MIT.


React is a widely used JavaScript library for building user interfaces and single-page applications. It follows a component-based architecture and uses a virtual DOM to efficiently update and render UI components


MobX is a simple and scalable state management library for JavaScript applications. It uses reactive programming techniques to automatically update the user interface in response to changes in the application state, making it easy to build complex and dynamic user interfaces with minimal code.


PostCSS is a popular open-source tool that enables web developers to transform CSS styles with JavaScript plugins. It allows for efficient processing of CSS styles, from applying vendor prefixes to improving browser compatibility, ultimately resulting in cleaner, faster, and more maintainable code.


TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript, providing optional static typing, classes, interfaces, and other features that help developers write more maintainable and scalable code. TypeScript's static typing system can catch errors at compile-time, making it easier to build and maintain large applications.


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.
