Copying from old web to new React application

We are looking to migrate a bunch of old web espaces to react espaces.  As they are different I can understand not being able to copy a block/page from a web espace and paste it into a react espace but it looks like you can not even select all the items on a page/block and copy/paste those?  This would mean migrating from one to another would be a COMPLETE re-write?

Hi Jason,

Tiago Simões on this post said "As for migrating traditional web apps, there is no magic conversion available, the models are just too different for any conversion to be any good. This being said, you can reuse server logic and data. We plan to share some guidelines for migration in the future, but again there will always be effort involved."

Atleast the UI part you will need to re-write everything.

Regards,

Marcelo
