React + TypeScript + Webpack 5

This post is intended for developers looking to get started with frontend development using the following

  • React
  • TypeScript
  • Webpack 5
  • SASS

Why the forementioned selection? Well, I would say more of my personal choice. While there are numerous bundlers available in the market, I find Webpack 5 great because of its flexibility and extensibility. I find the combination of the above 4 an easy, as well as great combination for frotnend projects. The Github repository aims to be served as boilerplate code for beginners.

Please refer to the [Github repository](https://github.com/vishalraj82/typesript-webpack5).

With availability of utilities such as create-react-app and create-react-library, setting up the barebones for a new react application development has become child’s play. But such utilites hide a lot of nitty gritty under their hood.

My idea of writing this post is, to allow new user learn how to start building a react application from scratch, without using any utility. Thus I created an empty application at react-from-scratch. The documentation mentions the step for application setup. The latter part of the document describes in brief about how the project has been setup.
