I think this is really nice for when I want to hack together a quick front-end for something. Once I have a working React/Node.js set up I can really quickly build something, but what usually stops me is the dozens of packages and things I need to wire together before I can actually start building something.

`create-react-app` is also pretty good, but this seems to do a bit more. I really like the simplicity of the set up and the fact that you can also just whip up an API call or something.

I find that the best thing about create-react-app is the eject feature.

It's an instant tutorial on how this damn mad hatter of an ecosystem works. They heavily commented the thing too !

Honestly, any lecture on react should have a part where people ejects and read the source code.
