Every time when I started a new side project and was using ReactJS I spend quite some hours setting up boilerplate code. Especially when using Redux for state management. I came up with a little CLI to generate some of this boilerplate for me and noticed how much time it saved me. Eventually, I ended up building a starter kit that could be used for every new project
When I was listening to an episode of the REWORK podcast about selling your "By-products" I thought that if my starter kit helps me saving time, it must be helpful for some other people as well. So here it is: React Milkshake. The simple starter kit for building high-performance React apps!
Last week I made a landing page, set up a Gumroad account, and today it launched on ProductHunt! Currently, it's at place 4, not bad for a by-product. 🙂
