  • Automation of create-openmrs-owa with React Components
Skip to end of metadata

Some basic level components, such as a header, footer, some dashboards (registration, summary, navigation, forms, …) should be created along with a create-openmrs-owa app (like create-react-app from Facebook), and then a new user can start to work from that state to build their requirements as an OWA. We already built some components on React, and need to improve those components and initiate this automation.
