How we built Unity - Myntra’s Enterprise UI platform in React!
Submitted by Vijaya Krishna Kudva (@nvkudva) on Wednesday, 9 August 2017
We at myntra experiment adopted react since its very early stages.
This talk is about a journey of building a framework called Unity which helped myntra developers to build internal apps super fast.
We will share the details on how one can build configuration driven user interfaces with exmaple components such as smart-form, smart-table and even the entire apps via configs.
Unity is a full stack setup in which to build a new app all a dev needs to do is to trigger a command and a codebase is forked with template app setup along with build and deployment tools.
The template app is pre integrated with myntra’s single signon, and a configurable navigation system. The template is also wired up with unity-components which gives access to huge inhouse built smart components.
Think of unity like a create-react-app on steroids but built well before create-react-app was created.
