How to develop connect addon UI using react (and back end in node) with AP module Edited

I would like to keep react project saperately and use a common UI for my server as well as connect plugin.

I have used https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/atlassian-connect-express to create connect addon

and used https://github.com/facebookincubator/create-react-app to create a react app. 

I did a build using npm run build for react. and copied these files generated by build to  public folder of connect addon. This works well till i do not need AP.

The moment I wanted to use AP.request with react to call jira api from my addon, I got stuck. How do i achive using AP.request from react app?

Is there a sample code where react build is done saperately for addon and then integrated it into the node project(Which server api onlly)?

I did find a very useful stuff in https://www.atlassian.com/atlascamp/2017/archives/advanced-techniques/react-for-re-use-creating-ui-components-with-confluence-connect

But this is more of integrating component in to addon and not regarding how to create your addon UI independently in react. Any idea?

You can refer to AP by using `window.AP`:

 

window.AP.require("endpoint", function(request) { 

  request({ url: "/badges",

  type: "GET",

  contentType: "application/json",

  success: success, error: error });
