To start using ReactPy, you'll first need to install it. Depending on your choice of backend, you can install ReactPy along with the corresponding backend implementation. Here's how you can do it:
Installing with Starlette Backend
pip install "reactpy[starlette]"
You can substitute
starlettewith any other backend as you want, example:
Installing a Pure Version of ReactPy
If you prefer a "pure" version of ReactPy without a specific backend, you can install it without any extras :
pip install reactpy
This option is useful if you plan to use a custom backend or if you want to manually manage dependencies for your chosen backend.
Let's get started by creating the first App using ReactPy
To get started, setup your coding environment as you want such as an IDE, preferrably use VScode or Replit's ReactPy.
Configuring Your ReactPy Application
To run ReactPy in production, you'll need to configure your chosen backend with a ReactPy view. The following steps demonstrate how to set up and run ReactPy with a sample backend. Remember that the process may vary depending on your chosen backend, but the basic structure remains consistent.
- Import Necessary Modules: Import the required modules from your chosen backend and ReactPy.
from reactpy import component, html from reactpy.backend.my_chosen_backend import configure
- Define Your React Component: Create a React component using ReactPy. This component will be the core of your web application. In this example, we create a simple "Hello, world!" component.
@component def HelloWorld(): return html.h1("Hello, world!") run(HelloWorld)
from reactpy import component, html from reactpy.backend.flask import configure from flask import Flask @component def HelloWorld(): return html.h1("Hello, World!") app = Flask(__name__) configure(app, HelloWorld)
