Creating a New CLI APP


Answer some basic prompts about your app, and then the CLI will perform the following steps:

  • copy over the template
  • install dependencies via yarn or npm
  • initialize local git repo

At this point, your new app is ready and is all setup for local development.


Now, anytime you can keep on developing

npm start # start bundle and watch your dev code  

Then, you can run your CLI

node . # -> node ./dist/index.js  

Commit Method Recommandation

npm run commit # lint before commit can save your time , and then conventional commit with git-cz

Publishing to npm

npm run release # Version and changelog
git push --follow-tags origin master
npm publish # The `prePublishOnly` hook will run before publish to build and test your package

This builds commonjs of your module to dist/ and then publishes your module to npm.
