Refine v3 (CRA) compatibility with Refine v4 (Vite)

I'm new to Refine, following a JavaScript Mastery course to learn the ropes, on setting up I discovered that CRA is now deprecated and unable to work with v4, and after trying to set up v3 and was met with a barrage of errors that I was unable to get to the root of, possibly because of the deprecated nature of CRA. I went with v4 and Vite instead because I figured it was the next best thing. But the setup and the file structure was so different that I couldn't go about customising the elements like sider and am now stuck.

Hi @princekelvx. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- It sounds like you're facing some challenges transitioning from Refine v3 (using CRA) to Refine v4 (using Vite). Here are some steps and resources that might help you navigate this transition: 1. Setting Up Refine v4 with Vite To set up a new Refine project using Vite, you can use the create-refine-app CLI tool. Here’s the command to get you started:
npm create refine-app@latest
npm create refine-app@latest
(Source: Quick Start Guide (https://refine.dev/docs/getting-started/quickstart/)) 2. Migrating from Refine v3 to Refine v4 Refine v4 introduces several changes and improvements over v3. To help with the migration, Refine provides a comprehensive migration guide and a codemod tool to automate some of the changes. #### Codemod Tool You can use the codemod tool to automatically update your project from v3 to v4:
npx @refinedev/codemod@latest refine3-to-refine4
npx @refinedev/codemod@latest refine3-to-refine4
(Source: Building a React Admin Dashboard with Refine (https://refine.dev/blog/building-react-admin-dashboard/#a-short-note-on-migrating-from-refine-3-to-refine-4)) #### Migration Guide For detailed steps and explanations, refer to the migration guide (https://refine.dev/docs/migration-guide/3x-to-4x/). 3. Customizing Elements like Sider If you are looking to customize elements like the sider in your Refine v4 project, you can refer to examples provided by Refine. Here’s an example of customizing the sider: - Customization Sider Example on CodeSandbox (https://codesandbox.io/embed/github/refinedev/refine/tree/master/examples/customization-sider?view=preview&theme=dark&codemirror=1) (Source: Customization Sider Example (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/blob/master/examples/customization-sider/README.md)) 4. Addressing File Structure Differences The file structure in Refine v4 might be different from what you are used to in v3. The migration guide and the example projects can help you understand these differences and adapt your customizations accordingly. Additional Resources - Refine Documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/) - Refine Tutorials (https://refine.dev/tutorial/) - Real-life Examples (https://refine.dev/templates/) By following these steps and utilizing the provided resources, you should be able to transition from Refine v3 to v4 and customize your project as needed. If you encounter specific issues, the Refine community and documentation are great places to seek further assistance. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
