Create Cozy App

Start quickly your Cozy application

What's create-cozy-app?

create-cozy-app is a command line tool that creates a skeleton of an application for Cozy, using Cozy libraries.

This tool can be run as an installed CLI or by using yarn create, see below for more information.

By default, create-cozy-app will use the cozy-scripts scripts bundle to build your app based on React. But option for VueJS or Vanilla are also available, see below for more information.

You can find a complete tutorial about creating a Cozy application using create-cozy-app in the official documentation (

ℹ️ The packages babel-preset-cozy-app and eslint-config-cozy-app have been moved to the cozy-libs repository since their version 1.0.0.


Running it via Yarn directly (highly recommended)

You can use create-cozy-app without installing it globally by using the yarn create cozy-app command to bootstrap your application:

yarn create cozy-app mycozyapp

You can find more information about yarn create in the yarnpkg documentation.

Running it using the installed CLI

By installed the CLI, you will have to update it regularly to keep the app template up to date. It is why we recommend to use directly yarn like above which will always uses the last version of the CLI.


Just use yarn to download and globally install the create-cozy-app CLI;

yarn global add create-cozy-app

CLI usage

Then, use the create-cozy-app command to bootstrap your application:

create-cozy-app mycozyapp

Ready to go

The script will download some dependencies (may take a while) and ask you a few questions, then creates an application skeleton inside mycozyapp.

That's it! You can already tart hacking:

cd mycozyapp
yarn start

After the webpack build and the docker environment ready, the mycozyapp app here will be available at


--scripts-source (useful for hacking)

You can pass a custom scripts package using the optional --scripts-source option, it can be one of:

  • a relative local path to a tarball (fileRel: prefix): fileRel:./a-folder/my-cozy-scripts.tar.gz
  • an absolute local path to a tarball (fileAbs: prefix): fileAbs:/root/my-cozy-scripts.tar.gz
  • an URL to a tarball (url: prefix): url:
  • a specific npm version (version: prefix): version:0.1.5
  • a specific git commit/branch with name provided after the '#' (git: prefix): git://

Using this options, create-cozy-app will use the cozy-scripts package but with the template-vue template folder in order to build a Cozy application using the VueJS 2+ framework.


Using this options, create-cozy-app will use the cozy-scripts-vanilla package (instead of the default one: cozy-scripts) and build a Cozy application in VanillaJS without any npm dependencies.


Using this options, create-cozy-app will be run in a more verbose way, useful for debugging or understanding what the script does.
