Discussion on: Do apps created with create-react-app work well in production?

Not sure about performance, but CRA can be pretty bad if you care about things like SEO or your app working without JavaScript enabled. That's where Next.js and/or Gatsby.js come in. Next.js also gives you other neat features like code-splitting which as far as I know are not included in CRA. Not to say that CRA is awful or anything, I do have a couple of hosted apps made with pure CRA working just fine in "production", but using one of these frameworks definitely gives your app a nice boost.
