    This project is NOT a framework, UI component library or a design system. The only purpose of this template is to assist you starting your CRA app with a solid tool stack and development patterns. It's 100% customizable. After you start your journey and once you understand the concepts offered here you should personalize your code accordingly instead of being tied to the starter project.

    You can add or remove literally anything and use whichever library or tools you prefer.

    Predictable state management
    Unidirectional data flow allows for change logging and time travel debugging.
    Instant feedback
    Enjoy the best DX (Developer eXperience) and code your app at the speed of thought! Your saved changes to the CSS and JS are reflected instantaneously without refreshing the page. Preserve application state even when you update something in the underlying code!
    Next generation CSS
    Write composable CSS that's co-located with your components for complete modularity. Unique generated class names keep the specificity low while eliminating style clashes. Ship only the styles that are on the page for the best performance.
    Industry-standard routing
    It's natural to want to add pages (e.g. `/about`) to your application, and routing makes this possible.
    Industry-standard i18n internationalization support
    Scalable apps need to support multiple languages, easily add and support multiple languages.
    Typescript is the key to scalability. Build self-documented code, easy-to-debug code and create maintainable large applications and codebases with a highly productive development experience.
    Quick scaffolding
    Create components, containers, routes, selectors and sagas - and their tests - right from the CLI!
    Static code analysis
    Focus on writing new features without worrying about formatting or code quality. With the right editor setup, your code will automatically be formatted and linted as you work.
    We support SEO (document head tags management) for search engines that support indexing of JavaScript content. (eg. Google)

    But wait... there's more!

    • The best test setup: Automatically guarantee code quality and non-breaking changes. (Seen a react app with 100% test coverage before?)
    • The fastest fonts: Say goodbye to vacant text.
    • Stay fast: Profile your app's performance from the comfort of your command line!
