Hi there! Is it possible to use my own app starter and use it as a Miro app, ideally create-react-app? My problem with the create-miro-app is that it’s using vite, which causes some (apparently) hard to fix issues when trying to use it in combination with Netlify and Netlify functions… If possible with create-react-app, are there any extra settings/ packages to load in order to make it work as a Miro app?

Hey @benman1 ! It’s definitely possible - All you need to make sure is that you’re initialising the Miro SDK properly. You can find and example of what that looks like here (Just the open panel method): https://github.com/miroapp/app-examples/blob/main/examples/stickynotes-to-shapes/src/index.js

I would also recommend checking out the create-miro-app starter to get an idea of the structure of how you can create your project (even if you don’t use vite)

@benman1 : I wrote a blog post on the Miro engineering blog that included my create-react-app based setup. It may be helpful for you: https://medium.com/miro-engineering/building-monetizing-miro-apps-f5faf108887b
