Starting a new React project nowadays is not as simple as we'd like it to be. Instead of instantly diving into the code and bringing your application to life, you have to spend time configuring the right build tools to set up a local development environment, unit testing, and a production build. But there are projects where all you need is a simple setup to get things running quickly and with minimal effort.
Create React App provides just that. It's a CLI tool from Facebook that allows you to generate a new React project and use a pre-configured Webpack build for development. Using it, you'll never have to look at the Webpack config again.
