I do like your post a lot. But you're contradicting yourself. "You can't use CRA for production". Point taken. But then why "webpack-dev-server"? I understand your point completely, it just might send a wrong message.

Sorry for the contradiction Kevin. One thing about programming is that everyone has his preferences.
I don't use CRA for production but others do. My reasons include lack of flexibility, tons of unnecessary stuffs etc.
And let's be honest, how many real-world apps were built with CRA? Not that many.

Hot reload? Yarn start? Well, webpack-dev-server is actually what enables us to do that.
