Build an app with Meteor and React

Update: This tutorial uses Meteor 1.2 and is somewhat out of date at this point :-/

This is a tutorial I created for a workshop introducing Meteor and React.

Finished version of the app we'll build

Some of the topics covered in the tutorial:

  • Setting up a Meteor app for use with React.
  • Creating a component hierarchy with “controller” components and “dumb”components
  • Understanding the difference between component props and component state.
  • Setting up routing with FlowRouter. (A Meteor router package.)
  • Setting up login and authentication.
  • Managing data and subscriptions in React components.
  • Creating reusable components.
  • Communicating with parent components. (A common challenge for those new to React.)
