Developing Our New Software: Why We Love React, Redux, and Django

Posted by Scott Burns on Apr 18, 2017 8:00:00 AM

As we’ve approached the release of our newest software, Launch Pathway, we have blogged about how Launch Pathway compares to other business intelligence tools, why data visualization is so important, and why hospitals and health systems should focus on the right data over big data.

 

Now in this post, a few members of our development team are taking the opportunity to share some of what they experienced while building this new software. As developers, this post is partly a love letter to the Stratasan tools and also an opportunity to share our philosophy on iteratively delivering large projects. With that in mind, we hope you enjoy.

Confident Asset Deployments with Webpack & Django, part 4

In the previous post in this series, we've described how at Stratasan, we integrate our Webpack builds into our main Django application. By moving the specific links to our Javascript and CSS out of our Django templates and instead using django-webpack-loader to render these tags, our deployments become more stable and less error-prone.

We want to finish this series with a few niceties that we've built for ourselves to improve our process of delivering valuable software to our clients.

In the previous posts in this series, we've explored why we've switched to delivering front-end assets with Webpack and how we configure our Webpack builds.

Here, we're going to cover how to integrate our Webpack builds into Django so that our site serves links to the newest version of our front-end assets.

Project Layout and Webpack Configuration 

In the previous post, we introduced concepts around deploying front-end assets. If you haven't read it and are not knowledgeable in this area, we suggest you read it now.

In this post, we'll describe the basic file structure of our project and dive into our Webpack configuration.

Confident Asset Deployments with Webpack & Django, Part 1

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to present to DjangoCon US 2016 about how the technology team at Stratasan delivers front-end assets. We've honed this process over the course of a year and are happy with the flexibility and simplicity it allows us. We believe providing concrete examples taken from our codebase will benefit the community.

You can find my slides here.
