Run scripts

  • See a list of all the scripts and run them with a press of a button
  • Run multiple scripts at once
  • The scripts run in an integrated Terminal that supports multiple tabs so you can see the output, or you can minimize it if you don't care



  • See two separate lists of the project dependencies and dev dependencies
  • Easily install a dependency and specify a version
  • Move a dependency to dev dependencies and vice-versa
  • Update the version of a dependency to the latest version



  • Plugins have the ability to install new dependencies, remove dependencies, modify scripts, remove and add new files to a project
  • Right now the following plugins are available: - Storybook: Installs storybook and adds the needed files to the project - Plop: Adds the plop generator to the project. It also adds a default plop-templates folder, a plopfile.js. - Add .env: Adds an .env file to the project. Soon this file will be editable through UI. - Rewire: Installs react-app-rewired and adds a default config-overrides.js file

Note: plugins will be separated from the repo soon so anyone can publish their own plugin


Generate files

  • Automatically detect a plopfile.js and quickly generate files from existing templates.
  • If plopfile.js is not present or you are not familiar with plop run the Plop plugin and it will generate the needed files for you
