Building a Trivia App with React

I sometimes use a Trivia app at the end of my talks as a replacement for the traditional summary slide, and we have also been using Trivia games as a fun activity at different Salesforce Developer events.

In this article, I share a React version of the Trivia application. The app is written with React and ES6 (ES2015), and is built with Babel and Webpack.

Check out a hosted version here:

Make it Your Own

The questions in the example above are just placeholders. It’s easy to create your own questions:

  1. Click here to download the app
  2. Modify data.js with your own questions
    The questions are loaded this way so you can easily load index.html from the local file system (using the file:// protocol) without runnning into XHR cross origin issues. See the commented out componentDidMount in app.js for an alternative XHR implementation.
  3. Open index.html. You can just double-click index.html on your local file system: no need for a web server.

Source Code and Build Instructions

The source code is available in this repository. If you want modify the app and create you own build:

  1. Clone the repo
  2. git clone
  3. Install the dependencies
    npm install
  4. Modify the app in the /js folder
  5. Build the app
    npm run webpack	


Initially inspired by Ember Jeopardy.

    I’m especially very proud of this because it went from idea production in a less than one day. This coming from a predominantly developer of back-end. Now i have use Trivia app very awesome and better performance. I love how react can be used by people such as myself, that don’t have superior JS skills, to pump out content marketing like this in no time.

    Assume one week from now your instructor is going to you an online talk which epitomizes all themes important to breeze through tests one month from now. As the talk is significant, you intend to record it with Movavi Screen Recorder in full HD to catch every single detail with incredible sound. In any case, subsequent to having it recorded, movavi activation key mac you discover that there were some long breaks, interferences and stops, as’ will undoubtedly occur in online classes. You can alter the recorded video with Movavi Video Editor Plus and alter out every single superfluous part.
