Quick Overview

Via yarn and interactive mode

$ yarn add -D reactcci
$ yarn rcci

or via npm and flags

$ npm i -D reactcci
$ npx rcci --name Header Body Footer --dest src/App


To install via npm:
npm install --save-dev reactcci

To install via yarn:
yarn add --dev reactcci


On first run CLI will ask you about automatic configuration. Just run a command:
npx rcci
This command creates file rcci.config.js and template folder with basic template set.

Config file contains next parameters:

  • folderPath
    Root directory to place you components, or array of paths
    Default: src/
  • templatesFolder
    Path to your own components templates
    Default: templates
  • multiProject
    Allows you to set up config for mono-repository with several projects
    Default: false
  • skipFinalStep
    Allows you to switch off last checking step
    Default: false
  • checkExistenceOnCreate
    Allows you to switch on check component existence on create to avoid replacing
    Default: false
  • templates
    Object with structure of your component
  • processFileAndFolderName
    String or function which allows you to remap your component name to folder-name and file-name prefix
    Default: PascalCase
    • camelCase
    • PascalCase
    • snake_case
    • dash-case
    • (name: string, parts: string[], isFolder: boolean) => string
        processFileAndFolderName: (name, parts, isFolder) => 
            isFolder ? name : => part.toLowerCase()).join('-')
  • placeholders
    List of placeholders which you can use to build your own component template
    #NAME# for a component name
    #STYLE# for css-module import
    #STORY_PATH# for storybook title
  • afterCreation
    Object with scripts to process you file after creation
    Default: undefined
        afterCreation: {                
            prettier: {
                extensions: ['.ts', '.tsx'], // optional
                cmd: 'prettier --write [filepath]'


Each placeholder is a function which get some data to build your own placeholder.
During the multiple component creation all functions will be called for every single component.

placeholders: {
    NAME: ({ componentName }) => componentName

After this set up you are able to use this placeholder by #NAME# inside your template files.
Below, you can see the list of all available data and functions to create a new one.

projectProject name in multy-project mode
Name of the component or another object in multi-template mode
objectTypeType of object which was selected by user. It is component by default.

    To set absolute or destination path to create or update component
  • --skip-search, -s
    To skip interactive folder selection to use dest argument as is
  • --name, -n

  • --files, -f
    To set files to create or update, instead interactive selection
    Example: --files style test component[1]

If you need to generate something else, not components only, you are able to set up array of templates.

    templates: [
            name: 'component', // will be added to default folderPath folder
            files: {
                index: {
                    name: 'index.ts',
                    file: 'component.ts'
            name: 'service',
            folderPath: 'services/', // will be added by the specific path
            files: {
                index: {
                    name: 'index.ts',
                    file: 'service.ts'
