Naturally Pacifist Marsupials


    0.5.2 • Public • Published


    This package includes some utilities used by Create React App.
    Please refer to its documentation:

    Usage in Create React App Projects

    These utilities come by default with Create React App, which includes it by default. You don’t need to install it separately in Create React App projects.

    Usage Outside of Create React App

    If you don’t use Create React App, or if you ejected, you may keep using these utilities. Their development will be aligned with Create React App, so major versions of these utilities may come out relatively often. Feel free to fork or copy and paste them into your projects if you’d like to have more control over them, or feel free to use the old versions. Not all of them are React-specific, but we might make some of them more React-specific in the future.

    Entry Points

    There is no single entry point. You can only import individual top-level modules.

    new InterpolateHtmlPlugin(replacements: {[key:string]: string})

    This Webpack plugin lets us interpolate custom variables into index.html.
    It works in tandem with HtmlWebpackPlugin 2.x via its events.

    var path = require('path');
    var HtmlWebpackPlugin = require('html-dev-plugin');
    var InterpolateHtmlPlugin = require('react-dev-utils/InterpolateHtmlPlugin');
    // Webpack config
    var publicUrl = '/my-custom-url';
    module.exports = {
      output: {
        // ...
        publicPath: publicUrl + '/' 
      // ...
      plugins: [
        // Makes the public URL available as %PUBLIC_URL% in index.html, e.g.:
        // <link rel="shortcut icon" href="%PUBLIC_URL%/favicon.ico">
        new InterpolateHtmlPlugin({
          PUBLIC_URL: publicUrl
          // You can pass any key-value pairs, this was just an example.
          // WHATEVER: 42 will replace %WHATEVER% with 42 in index.html.
        // Generates an `index.html` file with the <script> injected.
        new HtmlWebpackPlugin({
          inject: true,
          template: path.resolve('public/index.html'),
        // ...
      // ...

    new WatchMissingNodeModulesPlugin(nodeModulesPath: string)

    This Webpack plugin ensures npm install <library> forces a project rebuild.
    We’re not sure why this isn't Webpack's default behavior.
    See #186 for details.

    var path = require('path');
    var WatchMissingNodeModulesPlugin = require('react-dev-utils/WatchMissingNodeModulesPlugin');
    // Webpack config
    module.exports = {
      // ...
      plugins: [
        // ...
        // If you require a missing module and then `npm install` it, you still have
        // to restart the development server for Webpack to discover it. This plugin
        // makes the discovery automatic so you don't have to restart.
        // See
        new WatchMissingNodeModulesPlugin(path.resolve('node_modules'))
      // ...

    checkRequiredFiles(files: Array<string>): boolean

    Makes sure that all passed files exist.
    Filenames are expected to be absolute.
    If a file is not found, prints a warning message and returns false.

    var path = require('path');
    var checkRequiredFiles = require('react-dev-utils/checkRequiredFiles');
    if (!checkRequiredFiles([
    ])) {

    clearConsole(): void

    Clears the console, hopefully in a cross-platform way.

    var clearConsole = require('react-dev-utils/clearConsole');
    console.log('Just cleared the screen!');


    measureFileSizesBeforeBuild(buildFolder: string): Promise<OpaqueFileSizes>

    Captures JS and CSS asset sizes inside the passed buildFolder. Save the result value to compare it after the build.

    printFileSizesAfterBuild(webpackStats: WebpackStats, previousFileSizes: OpaqueFileSizes)

    Prints the JS and CSS asset sizes after the build, and includes a size comparison with previousFileSizes that were captured earlier using measureFileSizesBeforeBuild().

    var {
    } = require('react-dev-utils/FileSizeReporter');
    measureFileSizesBeforeBuild(buildFolder).then(previousFileSizes => {
      return cleanAndRebuild().then(webpackStats => {
        printFileSizesAfterBuild(webpackStats, previousFileSizes);

    formatWebpackMessages({errors: Array<string>, warnings: Array<string>}): {errors: Array<string>, warnings: Array<string>}

    Extracts and prettifies warning and error messages from webpack stats object.

    var webpack = require('webpack');
    var config = require('../config/');
    var formatWebpackMessages = require('react-dev-utils/formatWebpackMessages');
    var compiler = webpack(config);
    compiler.plugin('invalid', function() {
    compiler.plugin('done', function(stats) {
      var rawMessages = stats.toJson({}, true);
      var messages = formatWebpackMessages(rawMessages);
      if (!messages.errors.length && !messages.warnings.length) {
        console.log('Compiled successfully!');
      if (messages.errors.length) {
        console.log('Failed to compile.');
        messages.errors.forEach(e => console.log(e));
      if (messages.warnings.length) {
        console.log('Compiled with warnings.');
        messages.warnings.forEach(w => console.log(w));

    getProcessForPort(port: number): string

    Finds the currently running process on port. Returns a string containing the name and directory, e.g.,

    in /Users/developer/create-react-app
    var getProcessForPort = require('react-dev-utils/getProcessForPort');

    openBrowser(url: string): boolean

    Attempts to open the browser with a given URL.
    On Mac OS X, attempts to reuse an existing Chrome tab via AppleScript.
    Otherwise, falls back to opn behavior.

    var path = require('path');
    var openBrowser = require('react-dev-utils/openBrowser');
    if (openBrowser('http://localhost:3000')) {
      console.log('The browser tab has been opened!');

    prompt(message: string, isYesDefault: boolean): Promise<boolean>

    This function displays a console prompt to the user.

    By convention, "no" should be the conservative choice.
    If you mistype the answer, we'll always take it as a "no".
    You can control the behavior on <Enter> with isYesDefault.

    var prompt = require('react-dev-utils/prompt');
      'Are you sure you want to eat all the candy?',
      /* isYesDefault */ false
    ).then(shouldEat => {
      if (shouldEat) {
        console.log('You have successfully consumed all the candy.');
      } else {
        console.log('Phew, candy is still available!');


    This is an alternative client for WebpackDevServer that shows a syntax error overlay.

    It currently supports only Webpack 1.x.

    // Webpack development config
    module.exports = {
      // ...
      entry: [
        // You can replace the line below with these two lines if you prefer the
        // stock client:
        // require.resolve('webpack-dev-server/client') + '?/',
        // require.resolve('webpack/hot/dev-server'),
      // ...
