Supported Browsers

This setup uses Browserslist to target browsers.

The default list of supported browsers is listed in the package.json file:

	"browserslist": ["> 1%", "last 2 versions"]

This means that supported browsers vary based on current usage data and current browser versions.

In general, this setup supports the two most recent versions of all browsers.


The start template contains a ready-to-use auth flow with Login, Logout, Sign up and Forgotten password forms with validation included. The auth flow includes also route guarding and redirects based on auth status. Please take a look at the /src/containers/auth folder for more details.

The starting files also include ready-to-use layout components such as Header, Footer, Wrapper, Button, Icon and form Fields.
