Atom Package Development using React

#1

Hello,

I am trying to use React for my Atom package development and could not find any useful resources to get started. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

What useful resources are you looking for? The official React documentation should be sufficient to understand React. Atom is more or less a browser, so when you want to use React for writing a package, it’s not different from how you use it to write webpages.

If you want to look at existing packages using React and learn from them, I can recommend @steelbrain’s linter-ui-default as a starting point.

Lastly, let me point out to you etch, which is a library to write UI components for Atom and which is very similar to React. It’s arguably the right way to go, but that should not prevent you from using your preferred set of tools.
