But the improper structuring of the React App will affect the app's scalability and maintainability. As the app grows, we might add new and remove some old features, so each component needs to be loosely coupled with each other. Let see how to structure the React app to avoid such issues.
We need to group files based on the feature. That is, all files of a feature are in the same folder. Please check the below image for folder structure.
In the above image, we can see the folders of the React app. Let's break down each folder's purpose.
Global app setup and configuration used by the entire app are defined in the app folder as shown below, which includes axiosClient, rootReducer, saga, and store.
Reusable helpers, shared components, hooks, etc are defined in the common folder.
Feature-specific components, Slice (Redux reducer logic and associated actions — Redux Toolkit), APIs, and styles are placed in the features folder.
Components private, public routes are defined in the routes folders. Route restriction based on authentication is handled here.
Static assets like images, files, icons are placed in the assets directory.
Unit test cases and their mock go to the tests directory.
Global styles, theme configuration are placed in the style folder.
Using the above feature folder structure, We can easily remove or add a feature-related code without issues. The feature folder structure is recommended by the Redux style guide. By using Redux Toolkit, We have avoided boilerplate code like actions and reducers.

Feature folder-based file structuring will make React app more maintainable, scalable, and loosely coupled. Thank you for reading.
