Rincewind: Create React Apps with Parcel + React + PostCSS (with Tailwind) + TypeScript

oclif Version CircleCI Downloads/week License Netlify Status


$ npm install -g rincewind
$ rincewind # or rw

By default it creates the new app in a directory called rincewind-app. If you want to specify the folder name, add an extra arg: rw create myapp

Once you have a scaffolded app, cd into the project and then either run:

  • rw build for a production build
  • rw serve for local development. (aliases for this: rw dev or rw develop)

rw is just an alias for rincewind, you can use rw interchangeably everywhere except with npx



rincewind create

Aliases: rw create

Creates a Rincewind app. Only basic template available for now. You can pass an arg or a -d flag to specify the name of the directory it creates.

$ npm install -g rincewind
$ rincewind # or rw

These all also do the same thing

  • npx rincewind creates a rincewind app without install
  • rw init
  • rw create
  • rw init myapp
  • rw create myapp
  • rw init -d myapp
  • rw create -d myapp

rincewind serve

rincewind build

Aliases: rw build

rincewind build

These all also do the same thing

  • rw build


Name and History

v0-v2 of this package was a different project, run by over from 2013-2016 kindly handed this project over to swyx in Nov 2019, because of his deep love of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series and its bumbling Wizzard.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
