CUSTOM REACT STATIC SITE GENERATOR (Live Coding) [Part 2] | JavaScript | NodeJS | ReactJS

Watch as I live code a Custom Static Site Generator using ReactJS.

The audio after (52:10) went to sh*t. Sorry about that.

I have a basic HTML template, which I use as the foundation to create my React Application. From this template I create all the React Components I need to render the gallery. After the components have been created I use renderToStaticMarkup to render then to a file.

If you missed Part 1:

0:32 launch.json (for debugging)
0:53 package.json (babel / build scripts)
1:38 first build / console (hello world)
1:56 Hello React
4:35 index.html (the template)
12:30 config.yml (importing the data into the template)
29:10 first raw render of HTML
32:00 import images into gallery
45:30 gallery starting to look like a gallery
52:10 Audio goes to sh*t
52:28 Surprise Kitty!!!
59:10 Final render of Gallery (Ooof)
1:00:45 Deploy Live!
1:02:45 Epilogue

To follow along:

git checkout
cd mojo-gallery
git checkout youtube-video-part-2
