Getting React to work in CodeKit

Getting React to work in CodeKit


Hi everyone!

I’m trying to get React up and running on CodeKit, but CodeKit doesn’t seem to recognize the React syntax.

My react file, called index.js looks like this:

const JSX = <h1>Hello World!</h1>;

My index.html file looks like this:

<div id="greeting-div"></div>
<script type="text/babel" src="src/index.js"></script>

I use CodeKit 3.0 to Check Syntax and Process index.js. I am Transpiling With Babel and Checking Syntax with ESLint. Under my Babel settings I have “React” enabled as a preset.

When I Check Syntax I get “Parsing error: Unexpected token <” referring to the opening carrot in const JSX = <h1>Hello World!</h1>;

Any idea what I am missing? Babel simply appears not to recognize the JSX syntax.

Thanks so much for your help!
