    Create VK Mini App

    Create VK Mini App with no build configuration.

    Create VK Mini App works on macOS, Windows, and Linux. If something doesn’t work, please file an issue.

    Quick Overview

    npx @eolme/create-vk-mini-app my-app
    cd my-app
    npm start

    If you've previously installed @eolme/create-vk-mini-app globally via npm install -g @eolme/create-vk-mini-app, we recommend you uninstall the package using npm uninstall -g @eolme/create-vk-mini-app to ensure that npx always uses the latest version.

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

    When you’re ready to deploy to production, create a minified bundle with npm run build.

    Get Started Immediately

    You don’t need to install or configure tools like webpack or Babel. They are preconfigured and hidden so that you can focus on the code.

    Create a project, and you’re good to go.

    Creating an App

    You’ll need to have Node 8.16.0 or Node 10.16.0 or later version on your local development machine (but it’s not required on the server). You can use nvm (macOS/Linux) or nvm-windows to switch Node versions between different projects.

    To create a new app, you may choose one of the following methods:


    npx @eolme/create-vk-mini-app my-app

    (npx is a package runner tool that comes with npm 5.2+ and higher, see instructions for older npm versions)


    npm init @eolme/vk-mini-app my-app

    npm init <initializer> is available in npm 6+


    yarn create @eolme/vk-mini-app my-app

    yarn create <starter-kit-package> is available in Yarn 0.25+

    It will create a directory called my-app inside the current folder. Inside that directory, it will generate the initial project structure and install the transitive dependencies:

    No configuration or complicated folder structures, only the files you need to build your app. Once the installation is done, you can open your project folder:

    cd my-app

    Inside the newly created project, you can run some built-in commands:

    npm start or yarn start

    Runs the app in development mode. The page will automatically reload if you make changes to the code. You will see the build errors and lint warnings in the console.

    npm run build or yarn build

    Builds the app for production to the build folder. It correctly bundles React in production mode and optimizes the build for the best performance.

    The build is minified and the filenames include the hashes.

    Your app is ready to be deployed.
