Create React-enabled WordPress themes with a single command
"I wanted to teach myself React using WordPress as a back end. Most of the React tutorials I looked at used create-react-app. But using that to create a WordPress theme is quite problematic due to create-react-app's use of the Webpack Dev Server. So create-react-wptheme uses Webpack in watch mode and your WordPress server to serve the theme (what better?).
I had to write a custom Websocket server/client and a few other utilities to get feature-parity(ish) with create-react-app. Meaning create-react-wptheme has browser launch, browser refresh and "error overlay" just like create-react-app."
