    }

  3. You may change here your own api url e.g.,

    TodoList.js
    ...
    componentDidMount() {
    this.getTodo();
    }
    getTodo() {
    this.setState({ sectionReload: true });
    axios.get('https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/todos') // your api url will be here

How to change the color on the template ?

Here are step by step instructions to change the color on the template.

Case1: Change Primary Color:

In order to change the primary color you need to following steps:

  1. Go to AppConfig file and then to themeColors, simply change the primary value as per your requirement.

    AppConfig.js
    /**
    * App Config File
    */
    const AppConfig = {
    appLogo: require('Assets/img/site-logo.png'), // App Logo
    appUrl: 'http://reactify.theironnetwork.org', // App Url
    brandName: 'Reactify', // Brand Name
    navCollapsed: false, // Sidebar collapse
    darkMode: false, // Dark Mode
    boxLayout: false, // Box Layout
    rtlLayout: false, // RTL Layout
    miniSidebar: false, // Mini Sidebar
    enableSidebarBackgroundImage: true, // Enable Sidebar Background Image
    sidebarImage: require('Assets/img/sidebar-1.jpg'), // Select sidebar image
    locale: {
    languageId: 'english',
    locale: 'en',
    name: 'English',
    icon: 'en',
    },
    enableUserTour: true, // Enable / Disable User Tour
    copyRightText: 'Reactify © 2018 All Rights Reserved.', // Copy Right Text
    // light theme colors
    themeColors: {
    'primary': '#5D92F4',
    'secondary': '#677080',
    'success': '#00D014',
    'danger': '#FF3739',
    'warning': '#FFB70F',
    'info': '#00D0BD',
    'dark': '#464D69',
    'default': '#FAFAFA',
    'greyLighten': '#A5A7B2',
    'grey': '#677080',
    'white': '#FFFFFF',
    'purple': '#896BD6',
    'yellow': '#D46B08'
    },
    // dark theme colors
    darkThemeColors: {
    darkBgColor: '#424242'
    }
    }
    export default AppConfig;
  2. Go to src/assets/scss/_bootstrap-override.scss here you can change the value of ($blue: #722ED1 !default; //Manage Primary color variable.)

    _bootstrap-override.scss
    //App Background Scale
    $blue: #5C6AC4 !default; //Manage Primary Color
    $cyan: #47C1BF !default; //Manage Info Color
    $green: #50B83C !default; //Manage Success Color
    $yellow: #F49342 !default; //Manage Warning Color
    $red: #DE3618 !default; //Manage Danger Color
    $indigo: #174176 !default;
    $teal: #007ACE !default; // Manage Secondary Color
    $purple: #6f42c1 !default;
    $pink: #FF2B72 !default;
    $orange: #EEC200 !default;

Following the above two steps the primary color should be changed to your desired color.

Case2: Change Theme Color:

Reactify comes with 6 predefined themes that you can use, you can also see them in action from demo under themeoption on right hand side. Incase you want any one of them, then you simply need to change the class on body to your desired class for e.g theme-primary, theme-warning, theme-danger etc. In case you want to give your own custom class then you can go to container -> themes and create your own file. You can follow the same structure as other files present there. In addition to this you need go to src/assets/scss/custom/themes and create the necessary sass file.

Why Laraval version does not watch the files and also not loading after files changes.

In react other versions , changes automatically reflect by reloading the browser but in laraval Each time when you made changes in the project files then you need to execute npm run dev command. It will compiles the all project files and bundled into a single or chunks files. If you not execute the npm run dev command the changes will not reflect.

How can i use sidebar and horizontal menu at same time.

a). Go to src > components > RctAppLayout and open index file and find following code

{this.renderPage()}

and add horizontal menu like this.

<HorizontalMenu /> // add this component {this.renderPage()}

b) Now import this component to same file in component comment section.

import HorizontalMenu from 'Components/HorizontalMenu/HorizontalMenu';

c) Go to src->components->HorizontalMenu & open the NavLinks.js file.

d) Search for the "path": "/horizontal/... & just replace the horizontal keyword with app keyword.

By these steps you will integrated both menus.

How to integrate Reactify with Laravel?

Whether you need to integrate the laravel in reactify-redux-saga or in reactify-redux-thunk, the steps remains the same.

Note: You need to open the reactify, reactify-laravel(package that we provide) and your laravel project.

Step 1: Replace the contents of webpack.mix.js file of laravel project with the following code snippet:

webpack.mix.js
const mix = require('laravel-mix');
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Mix Asset Management
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Mix provides a clean, fluent API for defining some Webpack build steps
| for your Laravel application. By default, we are compiling the Sass
| file for the application as well as bundling up all the JS files.
|
*/
mix.autoload({
'jquery': ['$', 'window.jQuery', 'jQuery'],
})
mix.webpackConfig({
resolve: {
alias: {
'Actions': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/actions/'),
'Components': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/components/'),
'Assets': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/assets/'),
'Util': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/util/'),
'Routes': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/routes/'),
'Constants': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/constants/'),
'Helpers': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/helpers/'),
'Api': path.resolve(__dirname, 'resources/js/api/')
}
},
output: {
chunkFilename: 'js/chunks/[name].js',
}
});
mix.js('resources/js/index.js', 'public/js')
.sass('resources/sass/app.scss', 'public/css');

Step 2: Open the reactify-laravel project that we have given to you and copy all the contents of package.json file and replace the contents of Laravel's project package.jsonfile with the contents copied.

Step 3: Create a file .babelrc in your project directory (projectName/.babelrc) and put the following code in the file:

.babelrc
{
"presets": [
"env",
"react",
"stage-2",
["es2016"]
],
"plugins": [
"react-hot-loader/babel",
"babel-plugin-transform-class-properties",
"babel-plugin-syntax-dynamic-import"
]
}

Step 4: In your laravel project, Open the resources->js folder and delete the component folder and app.js file.

Step 5: Now go to your reactify project src folder and copy all the folders & files and paste it inside your laravel's project resources->js folder.

Step 6: Now open the index.js file from your laravel's project resources->js folder and add the line require('./bootstrap'); after the first 2 lines of the code. Like in the code given below:

index.js
import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';j
require('./bootstrap'); // Added Line

Step 7: Now open the public folder of reactify project(that we have provided to you) and copy the favicon and replace it with the favicon inside your laravel's project public folder.

Step 8: Now open the public folder of reactify project again and copy the content of index.html file, then open the resources->views->welcome.blade.php file of your laravel's project and replace all the contents with the copied content.

Step 9: In welcome.blade.php file of your laravel's project, you need to update few lines of code. They are:

Replace the line:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

with:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="{{asset('favicon.ico')}}">

Now add the given code before the end tag of body.

<script type="text/javascript" src="{{asset('js/index.js')}}"></script>

Step 10: Open the web.php file from your laravel's project, routes folder and update the code as follows:

Route::get('{any}', function () {
return view('welcome');
})->where('any','.*');

Step 11: Now open terminal and go to your project directory and run the following commands:

npm install //To download the dependencies

If you want to run the project in development mode, then run this command:

npm run dev //compile everything in devlopment mode

If you want to run the project in production mode, then run this command:

npm run prod //compile everything in production mode

In the last, serve your project with the following command:

php artisan serve
