React on Rails

The world’s leading solution for integrating of Ruby on Rails, React, and Webpack using rails/webpacker to build Isomorphic (Universal) apps, a new hybrid approach for accelerating the development of web applications. With over 2 million downloads and in use on more than 2,000 public websites, we believe we deserve our more than 4,600 stars!

Over three weeks, the ShakaCode team helped us migrate to React on Rails Pro, set up Webpack v4, migrated our entire asset pipeline to Webpack v4. The results were great. Our blog and product pages are 80-90% faster after that effort. The improved fragment caching was quick to set up and made a huge dent in our average server response times.

Boost React on Rails with React on Rails PRO

Improve your server response times up to 90% with built-in code-splitting, caching, and more efficient React server-side rendering for just $1500/year.

What makes it all the more impressive, is that during the period where we've reduced response times by almost 75%, we’ve also increased throughput by 124%. So we’re handling 2.24x the number of requests while maintaining much faster response times than previously. That’s amazing!
