I've searched for hours to find an answer, but wasn't able to find anything I could use for my case.

I'm using PnP to create a new list on my site but I would like to use an already existing Content Type to create the list from. Is it even possible?

This is how I create the list: enter image description here

Thanks in advance

    can you share some code snippet showing us how you are creating a list ? You can also post a documentation link if it you are referring to it – Gautam Sheth Aug 30 '18 at 12:32

You can do it after you've created the list.

First you need to have the CT ID

 .then((cts: any) => {
   cts.forEach(ct => {
     if (ct.Name === ctName) {
       return resolve(ct.StringId);

   // no matching CTs found, don't add anything

So basically something like

pnp.sp.web.lists.add(listName, "", baseTemplate, true) // true here to allow CTs
    .then((lar: ListAddResult) => {
