How Can I Set Up Absolute Imports in `jsconfig.json` for Create React App?

Given this setup Project directory structure

I am trying to do: import Loader from "base/Loader";

This is with Create React App, and there is a jsconfig.json like so:

  "compilerOptions": {
    "baseUrl": "src"
  "include": ["src", "src/components"]

Still, the import fails. It only works if I say, import Loader from "components/base/Loader".
