If this is your first React application that you are building please follow the steps below
- Install Node and NPM. Please note that your node needs to be later than or equal to version 8.10. Since I do development on windows and need multiple node versions I installed https://github.com/coreybutler/nvm-windows . This utility lets me switch between varioud node versions on windows but you might not need this.
- Go to command line and run the following commands
npx create-react-app my-app cd my-app npm start
3. For those in doubt, npx is just a package manager which is supported from npm version 5.2+ onwards.
4. It will launch the application on your browser with URL http://localhost:3000/
5. Once you are done coding and need to deploy to production, run the following command.
npm run build
This will create production ready build for your application.
