There isn’t any tutorial on DO talking about routing React/WP app.

If you didn’t already saw, at bottom of above post, there is source code for sample app. Referencing above article and source code can be helpful to build same setup.

However, this would require better Node.js, JS, WP/PHP knowledge so you can understand above code. :) If you need help with any part, feel free to ask, maybe someone will come with solution. ;)
