This integration guide walks you through the steps required to build a complete Replicache app, including the backend, from scratch.
The main reasons to do this would be:
- You want to integrate Replicache into some existing backend
- You just like knowing how things work
Building a Replicache backend isn't super hard, but there is some subtlety to getting push and pull correct and efficient. As such, we generally recommend users start with the replicache-todo starter app if possible and fork it to taste. Easier to start with something that already works!
You can follow the steps exactly to end up with a simple chat app, or use them as guide to build your own Replicache-enabled app.
You only need Node.js, version 10.13 or higher to get started.
You should also already understand How Replicache Works at a high level.
