Awesome post! I’ve been using codesandbox.io as my primary development environment in order to avoid those configuration downfalls of create-react-app. On Code Sandbox, you use create-react-app and/or Stackbit (which uses Gatsby to roll in a CMS, theme, and something called Netlify for deployment).
I have no idea how I would migrate to my own production server though. In the past, that used to be mainly changing the database hook-ups. Is what you’re talking about here useful from moving from build to production on another server?
