Enable saving sites that contain SPFx web parts as templates
Creating site templates that include preconfigured web parts on the landing page is a common requirement. We can add and configure classic OOB web parts on a landing page and save the site as a template, and we can do script injection customisations and save the site as a template. However, if a site includes an SPFx web part, we get the error message:
"Sorry, this site can't be saved as a template. It contains apps that don't work in templates"
This is currently a blocker in an area where a SharePoint Framework approach would otherwise be ideal.
Thanks for your feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now.
We do recommend having a look at the remote provisioning patterns (Site Designs or PnP Provisioning) which are future proof as the existing old save-site-as-a-template is not really something we recommend to be used as such.

think about saving handling using the pnp provisioning engine xml template perhaps.
