Is it just me or does npx seem to be seriously lacking in options and documentation detail?

I haven't used it much but I noticed that a git repository is created for you when you use npx to create a nextjs project. Not only that but it takes the liberty (or nextjs does) of making an initial commit for you. I don't prefer this. I know I can delete the .git directory inside the local project then initialize again myself (thus removing the default initial commit) and then make the commit/s the way I want them - but - I was hoping there was an easier way. I though just maybe that there was some option to use with the npx command (when creating a new nextjs project) to either not initialize a git repository or to - at least - not make the initial commit for you. I'm not finding anything like that and I honestly think npm help npx documentation is confusing at best.

Is there some way to create a new nextjs project with npx that does not initialize a git repository for you and/or does not make the initial commit for you?

there is no direct way with npx, however, there are some options like creating custom shell scripts, which after initializing the project, deletes .git
