Create React App example with styled-components & TypeScript

The main difference between this and the non-typescript example is that you need to add the following path config to your tsconfig:

"paths": {
  "@mui/styled-engine": ["./node_modules/@mui/styled-engine-sc"]

and install @types/styled-components:

npm install --save-dev @types/styled-components

Alternatively, to skip this configuration, you can set skipLibCheck: true in your tsconfig.

How to use

Download the example or clone the repo:

curl | tar -xz --strip=2 material-ui-master/examples/create-react-app-with-styled-components-typescript
cd create-react-app-with-styled-components-typescript

Install it and run:

npm install
npm start


Note that CodeSandbox is not supporting react-app-rewired, yet you can still see the code.
