# or npm 7+, extra double-dash is needed:
位 npm create chrome-ext@latest my-crx-app -- --template react-ts

# or yarn
位 yarn create chrome-ext my-crx-app --template vue-ts

# or pnpm
位 pnpm create chrome-ext my-crx-app --template vanilla-ts

You can also generator the project with crx cli, run:

位 npm install create-chrome-ext --global

# and then
位 crx my-crx-app
# or
位 crx my-crx-app --template preact-js
# or use create-chrome-exe (global env)
位 create-chrome-ext my-crx-app
