Boosting Team Productivity with CLIs ⚡️

How many times have you created files manually in a JavaScript project? It’s a lot of repetitive busy work. Perhaps your team is working in React and uses a feature-based folder structure. To create a new component, you need to create a folder, index, component, and style file. Don’t forget to add a test!

We’ll look at how to reduce this type of repetitive work by leveraging a CLI to generate files in a predictable, yet customizable way. Watch your team’s productivity skyrocket by embracing a cornerstone of developer happiness — automation.
