Grails Quickcast #8: Grails React Profile

Grails Quickcasts, brought to you through a partnership between OCI and DZone, provide bite-sized tutorials to help you maximize your productivity with the Framework.

Grails React Profile

In this Quickcast, OCI Grails Team Member, Zachary Klein, demonstrates how to use the Grails 3 React profile to build Grails applications with a React front-end.

In particular, Zak shows you how to create a single project build, which allows you to mix React code with common Grails-view technologies, such as GSP.

Moreover, he discusses the different Gradle tasks bundled with the profile and the typical workflow you may use while using it.
