Build App

You can build your React application anytime after you fetch your design from Figma. If your Figma design has prototyping, then that would be auto-implemented to create actions and navigations, which you can see on the generated code file when you build the app.

Build app to generate code

All the design has been generated with tailwindcss. Find all the theme related configuration inside tailwind.config.js

CRA? CRACO? Custom Webpack? ViteJS?

Using DhiWise, you can generate web applications from Figma in a few minutes. After generating the code, you can download the zip file and run it on your IDE.

To make your developer experience more delightful, you can now generate code in four different ways:

1. CRA (Create React App)

This beginner-friendly setup helps all the newbies and all the React developers who prefer the CRA setup. This comes with react-scripts v5.0.0

2. CRACO (Create React App Configuration Override)

This is CRA with a twist for better, opinionated, faster bundling. So you can configure it, whatever works best for you.

This comes with @craco/craco v^6.4.5

3. Webpack

Want a custom setup for your project? Want to go old-school?

Then this is for you. Each part of this setup is designed to match your application's needs with easy configuration and minimal tweaks and is entirely customizable. Powered by Webpack.

For this, we use the following packages:

"webpack": "^5.74.0",
"webpack-cli": "^4.10.0",
"webpack-dev-server": "^4.9.3",

Thanks, Webpack team! 👍🏽

4. ViteJS

The next-gen front-end tooling is here for lightspeed builds.

Vite brings all the fantastic features:
  • Instant Server Start

  • Lighting Fast HMR (Hot Module Replacement)

  • Optimized Builds

  • Universal Plugins

    "@vitejs/plugin-react-refresh": "^1.3.1",
    "vite-plugin-svgr": "^0.3.0",
    "vite": "^2.3.2",

Storybook support

All the above flavors come with storybook support. Storybook helps you start building and maintaining your applications' UI components.

How to use Storybook in DhiWise-generated React web applications?

Install and Initialize

     npx storybook init

Run the Storybook

      npm run storybook

Download the source code or sync it to GitHub or GitLab

You will be redirected to the code screen and from there you can download the source code and sync it to GitHub & GitLab !


The source code is debugged. Therefore, it can be run directly on your favorite IDE.

You can still make changes to your application by adding actions, changing views, & authentication, then re-build your application. Click on "Build app" to generate the updated code.

The basic structure of the generated code will be as following:

Install Dependencies

npm install

Running the app

npm start

Folder Structure

After creation, your project should look like this:
├── craco.config.js
├── package.json
├── package-lock.json
├── postcss.config.js

For the project to build, **these files must exist with exact filenames**:

- `public/index.html` is the page template;
- `src/index.js` is the JavaScript entry point.
