Hi, thanks for the reply! One question, though: why CRA would be better? Is there anything special about it I should learn before looking for Vite?

Hey, CRA is quite stable and most widely used..so If you face any issue there's a good chance that there is a github issue on the CRA's repo and it has either been solved or worked upon actively.

Vite is relatively quite new compared to CRA, you can definely learn Vite..but in the end these tools are just wrappers around bundlers like Webpack, Rollup, esbuild. You can use any of CRA, Vite etc whichever you feel confident with.

Hope this helps!

Yes, it does! I currently have no issues with CRA, but everywhere I see talking about Vite praises its speed. I'm not exactly in need of any speed improvement as I'm just writing a simple portfolio with maybe 4 pages, I don't see why I would need faster compile times when my compile times are already fast enough. But since I'm quite new to the confusing world of front-end development (and on the even more confusing world of tooling!) I kinda want to learn everything I possibly can.

Makes sense. Good luck with your project!
