    Here the App component is being imported using a special importJSX command. Meow is a library that allows us to make interactive CLIs. Here look at the render statement. A React element is being created where the App Element is passed as the first argument (ie the JSX part of the element) and then cli.flags is an arrow of props that will be passed into the element. This is where the name prop is coming from!!!
