I'm trying to get a jump start with React and like the simplicity of the create-react-app tool created by Facebook and described here:
Can anybody tell me what is wrong here?
I'm trying to combine it with FeatherJS and add this dependency to package.json:
import feathers from 'feathers';
Compiled with warnings.
Warning in ./src/App.js
4:8 warning 'feathers' is defined but never used no-unused-vars
✖ 1 problem (0 errors, 1 warning)
Warning in ./~/express/lib/view.js
78:29-56 the request of a dependency is an expression
@ ./~/express/lib/view.js 78:29-56
You may use special comments to disable some warnings.
Use // eslint-disable-next-line to ignore the next line.
Use /* eslint-disable */ to ignore all warnings in a file.
Judging by its documentation,
feathers ifself is the server and runs on Node.
On the other hand, a React app is a client-side application and runs in the browser.
You can't import
feathers into a browser app because it is a library intended only for the server.
Note: Technically React apps can run on the server too but Create React App doesn't currently support server rendering. It also comes with many pitfalls so I recommend holding off using it until you are comfortable with React itself.
Normally, with Create React App, you are expected to run your API server (which may use Feathers) separately as a Node (or any other) app. The React client would access it via AJAX or other network APIs.
Your Node app would use
feathers for the server, and React app would use
feathers/client to communicate with it.
