Hops - Universal flexible and extensible React applications

Hops is a framework that gets you started quickly with your React application, and also allows to customize your application’s behavior through various run- and build time hooks without “ejecting” to support more sophisticated use cases.

In this talk, we will show how we use Hops at Xing to deliver features for a larger amount of product teams in a central manner and why we chose to build our own solution instead of going with an existing solutions, such as “create-react-app” or “Next.js”.

We will also dive into Hops’ architecture and discuss its virtues as well as its shortcomings.
