Refreshing to see a React tutorial using a CDN for React instead of using webpack/create-react-app/<>.

It definitely removes the barrier to get started with React 😃

Are sites for production done this way (via CDN)? In other words, is there anything "wrong" with doing it this way?

Many people still believe you need create-react-app to get started

I couldn't agree more.

I see many Vue "getting started" posts using a single "script" tag to get started while the majority of React counterparts starts with "CRA" (which requires understanding of NPM & Node).
