Released a CLI "create-awesome-package" to bootstrap your JS/TS package πŸš€ πŸ“¦ (with video demo)

This CLI helps to create the package with JS/TS, build system(Webpack/Parcel) and necessary stuff πŸ”₯

It's like create-react-app but for building packages πŸ“¦

It’s a manual process to arrange all your boilerplate code, Webpack or other build systems to transpile to ES5, etc. and then build your desired package.

  • Mainly a bundler like Webpack or Parcel
  • Babel to transpire the code

To fix that, I have published a CLI tool, which will help us to do those things, and you will be ready to do your actual code right away.

The name of the CLI is create-awesome-package

create-awesome-package helps to create the package with the build system and necessary stuff.

You just write your own code πŸ”₯

You can find this on πŸ‘‰ NPMJS https://www.npmjs.com/package/create-awesome-package

Alt Text

How to install

npm i -g create-awesome-package
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

How to use

Go to your root of the package you want to build.

Then, Just run

create-awesome-package [package-name]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

OR also you can use npx

npx create-awesome-package [package-name]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

( if you don't want to globally install it)

and you are done! πŸ‘

Jest Testing is integrated with it.
Just run-

npm run test
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

If you want to build the package into one single file with ES5 transpilation, Just run-

npm run build
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can watch the video on YouTube to see the COMPLETE DEMO of how to use it πŸ‘‹

I am working on a few more features for it. I will release those soon.

Cheers!

What is the main purpose of new package it will create? Is it like JS library or UI components as well?

You are welcome! πŸ‘‹

Right now, it's a Library creator only. It can create JavaScript and TypeScript libraries.

create-awesome-package my-package js

or

create-awesome-package my-package ts
