Goodbye create-react-app. Hello Vite

I have been using create-react-app probably since it was created. But recently I have been tired of slow development and build times when working with React applications.

Vite is a modern build tool that is designed to optimize the development experience for front-end developers. It is lightweight, easy to use, and blazingly fast.

One of the biggest advantages of Vite over create-react-app is its speed. Let’s go through a few other of them

  • Fast development and build times, thanks to an innovative build system that leverages modern web technologies like ES modules.
  • Highly optimized builds for production, using advanced techniques like tree-shaking and code splitting to eliminate unused code and load smaller chunks on demand.
  • Compatibility with a wide range of front-end frameworks and libraries, including Vue, Svelte, and Preact, Heck even vanilla javascript projects
  • Flexible configuration system that allows you to customize your project in a way that suits your specific needs, such as using TypeScript or SCSS out of the box without having to eject the project. Even Tailwind has integration support for Vite

In conclusion, if you’re looking for a faster, more flexible, and more efficient build tool for your React applications, it’s time to say goodbye to create-react-app and hello to Vite. With its lightning-fast development server, optimized production builds, and flexible configuration system
