    React boilerplate written in TypeScript with a variety of Jamstack and full stack deployments. Comes with SSR and without need to learn a framework. Helps to split a monolithic React app into multiple SPAs and avoid vendor lock-in.

    For deployment you can use Docker multi-staged build to ensure the backend run-time environment doesn't contain the client build-time dependencies e.g. client/node_modules/. It improves security and reduces container's storage footprint. An example for React client and node server is here. Although this has nothing to do with code/types sharing.
