    Hi Israr,
     
    Thank you for posting your question to the Community! For clarity, are you building an app using React and looking to privately install it?

    Hey Erica Girges

    yeah, I want to develop a Zendesk client-side application using react js. But there is no proper documentation that guides me on how to do it. I have already downloaded your template and there are lots of differences between your template and the normal react app.

    Thanks

    I also have this question - the folder structure of the example app created by using:

    zcli apps:new --scaffold=react

    Is not the structure of a typical react app. Is there any documentation specific to the folder structure required for a side bar app?

    Hi Israr & Kenny, 
     
    Apologies for the delay. We're actively working on a boilerplate repo for ZCLI with React. If you both don't mind giving me a few days, I can probably have that template for you.

    Erica Girges I had another question - is React the only framework Zendesk currently supports for sidebar apps? Or could we utilize something like Vue/NuxtJs?

    Hi Kenny!
     
    So in terms of having available scaffolds we are currently limited. However, you can definitely develop a sidebar app using other frameworks. I've personally built an app with Next.js as well. It would just a matter of establishing/initializing your connection to the client. 
     
    Hope this helps!

    Is there any update on the ZCLI Boilerplate you mentioned above?

    Hi Kenny,
     
    I know there's still some testing be done with it. As of now, we're looking at end of June for that to be publicly available. If you did have an immediate need/issue, please let us know and we can pull you into a ticket and take a look into helping you get setup.

    Hi Kenny Buckles and Israr Ansari,

    If you or anyone is still looking out for a boilerplate / scaffold to develop applications with react or any framework of your choice, you can take a look at my boilerplate here:

    https://github.com/OlegGulevskyy/zendesk-vite-boilerplate

    In this boilerplate you can:

    - Use any framework you want (React, Vue, Svelte)
    - Framework setup will not be any different to what you are used to see in your normal front end projects.
    - Boilerplate handles a lot of things behind the scenes so you don't need to worry about how to set it up, with detailed instructions, how to create all the applications supported by Zendesk Support
    - Real hot module replacement during local development, where you can make the changes and see the result instantly without refreshing the applications / page
    - Is not based on old zat tool but new zcli, which is more easier to work with. Finally no Ruby installation and no more pain on M1 macs

    Hope this helps
