Kwakr was a test.  A test to see what it really took to build a web application with React.  This single page application has all of the requirements for a social application – Facebook Authentication, Social Components, and Live Updating.

This application was definitely more of a challenge than originally expected.  First understanding the nuances of React and then adding Redux under the hood made this “simple” application a bit of beast.  What was learned from this experiment was that React is a great way to build applications and that Redux, while complex to understand in the beginning, makes your life much easier in the long term.
