Totally agree with your thoughts on CRA. While I like that it abstracts away build tooling, I think that the moment you have to eject you pay for it big time.

My preferred approach nowadays would be to initially start with something like Parcel and if a use case for something like Webpack surfaces, then configuring Webpack manually so that I know what goes into my Webpack config and how to maintain it.

Interesting, would love to take a look at Parcel!
