superplate has been developed to create rock solid UI frameworks apps boilerplate with no build configurations in seconds.
You can add usefull, highly-demands front-end development tools and libraries as a plugin by using superplate CLI during the project creation phase.
To learn on how superplate and its plugins work, you can check out our documentation.
For now, superplate only creates project for Create React App and Next.js apps as a default Framework option. Other frameworks will be added soon.
For more detailed information and usage, refer to the superplate documentation.
To create a new app run the command:
npx superplate-cli <my-project>
Make sure you have npx installed (npx is shipped by default since npm 5.2.0)
You will be prompted with plugin options to create your project without spending hours on configurations. To find out more about superplate core plugins see the superplate-core-plugins.
Once all questions are answered, it will install all plugins and the dependencies. Then navigate to the project folder and launch it:
npm run dev
Use the dev command when running application in development mode.
- It provides a easy starting to your project in seconds with using industry-standard best practices and performance oriented tools & libraries.
- You can easily develop your own framework CLI and plugins according to your needs to on top of superplate codebase due to its framework/plugin agnostic nature.
- Code examples are added to plugin documents to show how best practices are implementing.
superplate makes it easier to get up and running with a well-structured Next.js and TypeScript application.
Next.js is a minimalistic React framework that runs on the browser and the server with all the features you need for production: hybrid static & server rendering, TypeScript support, smart bundling, route pre-fetching, and more. It offers developers an easy way to get started, build server-side rendering and static web applications using React.

superplate uses a plugin-based architecture. Basically, plugins are created from highly-demanded npm tools in the front-end ecosystem with configuration files.
The features and tools listed during the project creation process are implemented as plugins.
You can check them out in superplate-core-plugins.
The default core plugins determined by Pankod team uses on a day-to-day basis to build apps. Feel free to send PR or open an issue for new plugins you want to add.
Using a custom source of plugins
You can use different sources for plugins other than superplate-core-plugins.
--source <path-to-source> option to use superplate with a custom source.
To learn more about sources and how to create your own; please check out documentation
Creating a plugin

Development mode commands
Watch for changes in the code; build the project and then globally install the superplate for testing.
npm run dev:global
Create a build inside
npm run build:cli
Install the current build globally
npm run global
