Could you please share you config of how you got Webpack Bundle Analyser working with the latest versions of CRA?

I'm trying the command react-scripts build --stats but it's not generating the bundle-stats.json file needed for bunde analyser.

Hmm react-scripts is a create-react-app thing isn't it? In that case I'm not sure as I didn't use CRA and I had the option of adding the Webpack Bundle Analyser to my webpack configuration. Maybe this helps?

This feature was deprecated in CRA 3.0. The recommended way is to use source-map-explorer:

You may have to remove the single quotes if you are on windows:
npx source-map-explorer build/static/js/*.js

Yes, but I was hoping to get it working with the bundle analyzer as it has a better interface.

Thank you for confirming CRA 3.0 removed the bundle stats.
