Shave the yak of React with Rails

Integrating Ruby on Rails with React and Webpack is tough. Lots of YAK SHAVING is a given. My team and I have been helping many companies with this tech stack since 2014.

I'm here to help you save time and money by sharing our expertise, recipes, and software for optimizing your Ruby on Rails sites that use Rails and React, for not only a better end-user experience but also a great developer experience. You can focus on your application and let ShakaCode handle your optimal React on Rails setup.

What is yak shaving?

It's spending way too much time for a seemingly simple task, like getting your CI working again after updating Webpack, Babel, and Node. You're only a few minutes away from completion, but that was 5 hours ago. Have you ever been there?

React on Rails Pro is right for you if you want to:

The Solution: A verified partner with varied expertise

Optimize the performance of your site for users so that you get a better Google Lighthouse score, especially if you're using server-side rendering (SSR) for SEO and performance optimization.

Minimize yak-shaving time keeping your React, Webpack, and other Node packages and configurations current.

Use cutting edge performance technologies such as dynamic React code splitting with SSR using loadable components.

Have experts always available for questions and pairing on issues related to Rails, React, and Webpack.

Give your developers the best possible developer experience with React hot-reloading.

Effectively use react-router with server-side rendering, maybe with code splitting.
