How do you get started with Reaction? The docs aren't really helping me.

I'm thinking to leave behind the reaction for now. Its really bad documented and the architecture of react/blaze view components and templates are ugly!. And the worse part is the time of refreshing and development cycle. Maybe it's the main reason for my goodbye!. It seems this platform is nice for who just need a little customization and kick start his eCommerce site without much more features. But for who needs a lot of plugins and features like me, the build time is just equals development time =))
So I will continue my project directly on Meteor

@Pamith there are many pages that seem to be broken in various branches, I try to stick to master you can pick the branch using the chooser widget up top next to the search field.
@Gradlon and @mtnptrsn have you guys looked at the customization guide? Specifically I think this section is what @Gradlon is looking for?

@janus-reith this is what i thought it would be, so i am considering other sulutions. Realy sad i would love to use reaction commerce for this, but that is a deal breaker and i don't have that much time to dig into the code right now.

Does anybody know if the Shopify connector in the marketplace branch supports images? I'm trying to import an initial set of images to my products and I can't really seem to find a way to insert data to the CollectionFS stores.

The Shopify connector should import images
@janus-reith we’ve been making great progress on the 1.5 release, but I can’t give a firm date for release other than "when it’s done”, I’m hoping early next week at this point.
You are correct that once it is released the marketplace branch will be even with master
and we will be removing the marketplace branch which was always meant to serve as a feature branch

@Pamith Hi - sorry about that. Try this URL:
@papmodern The best tutorial for the updated Reaction Components API would be here: -- the example starts with adding a CustomNavBar component that yo ucan put into your custom plugin
