I am trying to create a react app in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate and it fails every time. I am going to project > New, then selecting Static Web, then React App. In the next screen, I enter the app name, and leave everything else at the default (node interpreter is /usr/bin/node, create-react-app is path to create-react-app in my user directory, and scripts version is blank, with no options available). When I create the app, I receive the following error:
The directory . contains files that could conflict:
Either try using a new directory name, or remove the files listed above.
I have tried this about a dozen times, using various combinations of project folders and modules, and absolutely nothing seems to work. It seems that IntelliJ is creating the .iml file, which is preventing the create-react-app script from running properly. Any ideas where I'm going wrong with this?
