A cli build tool for react projects that abstracts away configuration.
I have a few small react projects on the go and keeping their build dependencies up to date individually has become a hassle. I realized that most of my project setups are 95% the same which means I can share configuration to a certain extent.
I was inspired by how create-react-app hides build configuration so cleanly. Although CRA is great, it doesn't fit my goals exactly.
create-app to be a multipurpose build tool for myself. The first step I took was to move all build configuration from my react-starter project to
create-app and then update the npm/yarn run commands to call
create-app commands instead. This also happens to result in an extremely clean package.json file.

You really want to use this? It's heavily opinionated and only supports my starter projects... but okay!
yarn add --dev @jakedeichert/create-app
Starter project: react-starter
Starter project: typescript-react-starter
Support for my other environment setups will be coming soon.
