A react questionnaire app with features like authentication and auto save.

Detailed description

react-form: A react form build on Hasura

This Hasura project consists of a react app which consists of the following features: 1. An authentication screen where a user can login or register 2. Post registration, the user is redirected to a questionnaire. 3. The questionnaire auto saves the users progress every 15 seconds. 4. The database schema to store questions and answers from users.


  • Before you begin, ensure that you have the latest version of the hasura cli installed. You can find instructions to download the hasura cli from here

  • Ensure that you have Node installed on your computer, do this by running node-v in the terminal. If you do not have Node installed you can get it from


  • Authentication screen

Form Auth

  • Questionnaire



To get this app up and running quickly:

Step 1: Get the project using the hasura cli tool

$ hasura quickstart jaisontj/react-questionnaire
$ cd react-questionnaire

The above command does the following: 1. Creates a new folder in the current working directory called react-questionnaire 2. Creates a new trial hasura cluster for you and sets that cluster as the default cluster for this project 3. Initializes react-questionnaire as a git repository and adds the necessary git remotes.

Step 2: Get cluster information

Every hasura project is run on a Hasura cluster. To get details about the cluster this project is running on:

$ hasura cluster status

This will give you your cluster status like so

INFO Status:                                      
Cluster Name:       excise98
Cluster Alias:      hasura
Kube Context:       excise98
Platform Version:   v0.15.9
Cluster State:      Synced

Keep a note of your cluster name. Alternatively, you can also go to your hasura dashboard and see the clusters you have.

Step 3: Deploying on a hasura cluster

  1. Open the package.json file at microservice/www/app/
  2. Find the key scripts and then replace cluster-name with the name of your cluster (in this case, excise98) in the build & start key.

To deploy your app:

$ git add .
$ git commit -m "Initial Commit"
$ git push hasura master

Once the above commands are executed successfully, head over to (in this case to view your react app.
