create react app

i have basically finished my little flirtation with contributing to an open source boilerplate. At the end of the day it is awe inspiring to learn directly from an obviously insanely capable full stack developer, but the whole thing feels a little too fringe and I need to work on my core skills instead of copying and pasting programming patterns.

today i am working on create-react-app, which I tried out before during FCC but never really tried once I discovered that there was difficulty adding a Node backend (CRA’s docs itself redirects you to the dated fullstackreact site) and react router. I am also hoping to learn firebase so I maybe dont have to even use a node backend.
