With joy, I can see that more and more of Foreman’s core UI is moved to react. As most of you know, we develop and maintain a lot of plugins. I’d really like to start using react in plugins as I fear normal rails / erb templates won’t be supported in the long term future.
I know that using react works quite well in a development environment, but there are issues in a production environment. I believe that right now you have to always rebuild the plugin rpms once there are changes to a core package.
And my goal is to keep the maintainance effort for (our) plugins as low as possible.
My questions are:
- What is the current status of React in plugins?
- Would you recommend starting to use react in plugins?
- Is the interface stable enough for production use?
- What steps are required to move a plugin to react only?
