Webpack 4


Finally we want to add some npm scripts so we can run our servers easily. In package.json add a scripts section:

  "scripts": {
      "api": "node api.js",
      "build": "webpack",
      "client": "webpack-dev-server --port 3000"
  • So now yarn api will run our fake server.
  • yarn build will create a webpack build and put the bundles in dist.
  • yarn client runs the webpack dev server.

Node Foreman

We have two servers to run for developing: the Api and the Frontend, we will need to launch both manually to test our application, this is ok but there is a nicer way using a package called Foreman.

Install Node Foreman:

yarn add foreman

Then create a file called Procfile in the root of the project with:

api: yarn api
client: yarn client

Edit package.json to include a new script:

"scripts": {
  "start": "nf start"

Test it

Let's test our setup

In a terminal window run:

yarn start

If you browse to http://localhost:3000/ you should see our application, which outputs "Hello". Use Ctrl-c to stop the servers.

Your application code should look like
