create-chakra example

Create Chakra Project (create-chakra)

⚒ Tool to scaffold chakra apps, without wasting time. It uses existing tools like create-next-app and create-vite and then configures chakra ui in the project.

Scaffolding tools

NOTE: Add the -ts postfix to the ID to install with TypeScript

Include template id to skip input steps

Pull requests are always welcome, but please ensure that you’ve properly tested and the project is working correctly.

Testing locally

Just clone the repo and run:

pnpm build && ./dist/index.js

# OR
pnpm build && npm i --location=global .

Please, prefer using pnpm rather than npm or yarn while building create-chakra locally as it will avoid conflicts. I have not tested create-chakra with npm or yarn.
