React Series-1 Create your first React Application
This is the first tutorial of my React tutorial series. At the end of this tutorial you will have your first React application running.
First you must install NodeJS, simply choose the correct file for your OS and install it, I will be using current LTS version(8.9.4).
After the installation, you can use npm to install packages.
Let’s start with installing create-react-app.
npm install -g create-react-app
Now you will be able to use create-react-app command. So, create your first application using the command below.
Now you can go into your app folder and start your first react application.
cd first-react-app npm start
Congratulations! You successfully created your first React application. Next step is learning more about project structure and creating your first component.
