When I start a new create-react-app (CRA), it has a lot of files and stuff I don't need. This includes:
reportWebVitals(Analytics and performance, etc.)
logo.svgand some other stuff to create the React "Hello World" app.
setupTests.js, and other test related defaults. Although I might be yelled at for saying: "I don't need testing", I just don't need it for smaller prototype setups.
When I tried to research for a solution for this problem (fancy way of saying, I googled it), I encountered a post on Stackoverflow, and I am obviously not the only one with this problem, so a guy from CRA (if I remember correctly), commented and mentioned they have developed
templates to satisfy users which had a different workflow than the default one.
And that I could find all the templates available on npm, simply by searching for cra-template-*.
Here I found the template I was looking for and can now create my simple and basic CRA Apps, simply by typing:
npx create-react-app my-app --template minimal
