yarn create vite

Follow the prompts to create a React and Typescript project.

Add the rollup-plugin-chrome-extension

yarn add -D rollup-plugin-chrome-extension

With this setup, your React files should all be in a folder named src.

If this is the case, set up your vite config like this:

// vite.config.ts
import { defineConfig } from 'vite'
import react from '@vitejs/plugin-react'
import { chromeExtension } from 'rollup-plugin-chrome-extension'

// https://vitejs.dev/config/
export default defineConfig({
  root: 'src',
  plugins: [react(), chromeExtension()]

With this plugin, vite (rollup) will read all the files in the manifest and make sure they are included in the build in the resulting dist folder.

Note: For this plugin to work, your manifest.json file needs to be in the same folder as your root setting. In the example above, it's src.
