Electrode from WalmartLabs

From the new electrode.io site from the folks at @WalmartLabs:


Electrode is a platform for building universal React/Node.js applications with standardized structure, best practices, and modern technologies baked in. Electrode focuses on performance, component reusability, and simple deployment to multiple cloud providers—so you can focus on what makes your app unique.

From the name, I at first thought this was an Electron platform. But it’s actually a server/client platform built on React and Node.

Interestingly, some of the magic is a custom Wepback loader:

A webpack loader, plugin and library to make NodeJS require work with complex files like images when we are doing server-side rendering.

Also a custom Wepback bundle analyzer.

Interesting to see Webpack at the core of their platform, which is something I agree with, obviously.
