CLI - helps to create the package with JS/TS, build system(Webpack/Parcel) and necessary stuff 🔥
It's like create-react-app but for building packages 📦
In our daily life, a lot of times, we need to create a separate package, so that we can reuse.
And also sometimes, we want to publish packages to the NPMJS registry, so that other developers can use them.
But to do that, we need a few things-
- Mainly a bundler like Webpack or Parcel
- Babel to transpire the code
It’s a manual process to arrange all your boilerplate code, Webpack or other build systems to transpile to ES5, etc. and then build your desired package.
To fix that, I have published a CLI tool, which will help us to do those things, and you will be ready to do your actual code right away.
The name of the CLI is create-awesome-package
create-awesome-package helps to create the package with build system and necessary stuff.
You just write your own code 🔥
You can find this on 👉NPMJS https://www.npmjs.com/package/create-awesome-package
How to install
npm i -g create-awesome-package
How to use
Go to your root of the package you want to build.
Then, Just run
OR also you can use npx
npx create-awesome-package [package-name]
( if you don't want to globally install it)
and you are done!
It will provide you the boilerplate you need to get started!
You can watch the video on YouTube to see the demo how to use it 👋
I am working on a few more features for it. I will release those soon.
