We’re very excited to announce the stable release of Rekit Studio, a complete IDE for React, Redux and React Router development! Though it’s maybe new to some of you, it has helped us build complicated web apps for more than one year.
The previous version of Rekit Studio was Rekit Portal, which has no ability to edit code. Now thanks to Monaco Editor which also powers VS Code, and prettier, an amazing tool for formatting code, Rekit Studio provides great experience for coding. That’s also why we renamed it from ‘portal’ to ‘studio’.
As an IDE, besides code editing, Rekit Studio provides the capability of code generation, dependency diagram, refactoring, build, unit tests and a meaningful way of code navigation. You will no longer care about how to setup the project, config webpack or organize folder structure. Rekit Studio provides an integrated way to manage the project. That’s what makes Rekit Studio different from other code editors like Sublime Text, VS Code.

So, this article might seem long-winded. I do want to show you how to write actual React and Redux code. But it will take a while to get there. And there is a reason. Redux is not terribly complicated. But with Redux (like React), understanding why you’d want to use it is much more interesting than how it works. So, though it might take us a little while to get to Redux, I think the journey will be worth it.
