How to use Https in Create React App

In this tutorial, we are going to learn how to use https in create react app development server instead of http.

Using HTTPS

To use https in react app we need to add an environment variable HTTPS=true before the npm start command.

HTTPS=true npm start

If you don’t like to add an environment variable each time you start the server, you can directly include it inside the scripts objects in package.json file.

{
   "start": "HTTPS=true react-scripts start"
}

Now, you can just run npm start.
