GoodData Create React App

This is a CLI tool that creates a new React project with a proxy set up to connect to your projects on the GoodData platform. The new app features some widgets and helpers that could come in handy. The app is built on top of Create React App. For more info see Create React App documentation.

How to use

To create a project called my-app, run this in your terminal:

npx @gooddata/create-gooddata-react-app@latest my-app

Then follow the instructions provided by the CLI.

When navigating to your application using an IP address instead of localhost, you may run into 401 errors while trying to log in. This is due to proxying and cookie rewriting rules that the generated application uses to get around CORS. Use localhost instead of IP addresses to access the application because the development server rewrites GDC cookies to be for localhost.

NOTE: We use yarn dependency manager. To install it, follow its documentation. If you don't want to use yarn, provide the --no-install flag like npx @gooddata/create-gooddata-react-app@latest my-app --no-install . This will skip calling yarn install and you will have to manually install the dependencies of the created app. Please note that we do not provide package-lock.json so the application may not work properly when dependencies are installed using npm.

CLI usage

@gooddata/create-gooddata-react-app supports several optional flags:

  • --hostname <hostname> URL of your GoodData host
  • -c, --config <config> path to configuration file (see below)

  • --verbose output additional logs, useful mainly for debugging and bug reports
  • -h, --help output usage information
  • --backend <backend> switch backend to a desired one (default: bear)
