    Install globally

    This package requires node >= 10.

    npm install -g @21epub/create-parcel-react-library

    Usage with npx

    No need to create an empty folder before running.

    npx @21epub/create-parcel-react-library

    (npx comes with npm 5.2+ and higher, see instructions for older npm versions)

    Creating a New Module


    Answer some basic prompts about your module, and then the CLI will perform the following steps:

    • copy over the template
    • install dependencies via yarn or npm
    • install peers vis yarn or npm (You have to do this since peers will not auto installed , dev start will cause error !)
    • initialize local git repo

    At this point, your new module is ready and is all setup for local development.


    There's only one thing to do your development is enjoy your coding in src/ and your example in example/

    npm start # start your example dev code   

    Now, anytime you make a change to your library in src/ or example/ will live-reload your parcel dev so you can iterate on your component in real-time.

    Update Peer Dependencies

    After update peerDependencies in package.json .

    npm run install-peers # reinstall peers after update 

    With storybook

    Init storybook environment by

    npx sb init

    Get Start with Storybook and develop your Component, Reference docs

    npm run storybook


    Commit Method Recommandation

    npm run commit # lint before commit can save your time , and then conventional commit with git-cz 

    Proxy Server

    Set API proxy config in ./scripts/proxy.config.json

    npm run start:proxy  # start proxy server 

    Open proxy server url: http://localhost:12345/

    Publishing to npm

    npm run release # Version and changelog 
    git push --follow-tags origin master
    npm publish # The `prePublishOnly` hook will run before publish to build and test your package 

    This builds commonjs and es versions of your module to dist/ and then publishes your module to npm.

    Make sure that any npm modules you want as peer dependencies are properly marked as peerDependencies in package.json. The rollup config will automatically recognize them as peers and not try to bundle them in your module.
