Live reload with Webpack + React + Electron application?


Just wondering what the most straightfoward or standard way to get hot reloads are with a Webpack + React + Electron setup.

I’ve come across some good links like this one but wanted to know if there’s a more up to date way.

Thanks! :sunglasses:


Hi @Orbyt I was dealing with the same problem and decided to create a simple Electron + React project from scratch. Basically I used create-react-app app generator and ejected it to include some cool things like hot reloading among others.

My goal is to create a skeleton app ready to start, so you can focus on build something instead of configure it (less js fatigue :muscle:).

This is the link to the repo. Please let me know what do you think and if you miss something during development.

Hope it helps you!
