How to integrate REACT front end on GHOST

Hi, I need to know that is it possible to use a React.js front end with Ghost and if yes how to do that. I need a full tutorial to do it.

Recently I am running on Casper theme and I need to integrate React front end.

Please help me.

Use Gatsby with Ghost integration: https://github.com/TryGhost/gatsby-starter-ghost/blob/master/README.md

Gatsby will give you a React frontend and Ghost will give you the backend API.

Now I’m running with ghost http://androidwedakarayo.com with customized Casper theme. I want to move into the React front end. So is it possible to migrate my all data into Gatsby?

I’m new to ghost and I have stuck in Wordpress for a long time.

The trick is: Don’t migrate your data. Keep them in Ghost. Gatsby will contact Ghost and fetch the content via API. You write React code that runs within Gatsby.

How to run the code with Gatsby. Could you please show it to me with a video.

The Gatsby people have excellent tutorials on their website. Here is a simple video: https://www.gatsbyjs.org/docs/quick-start

For the whole thing, look here: https://www.gatsbyjs.org/docs/

As soon as you have Gatsby running and have played with it and with React, then try to attach it to Ghost: https://github.com/TryGhost/gatsby-starter-ghost/blob/master/README.md

Good luck!
