React – Setup React Development

Here are my React resources to help setup a development site.

Create React App

This will have everything needed to build a modern single-page React app.

  • Install the latest NodeJS
  • In a command prompt, install create-react-app (only once).  Command: npm install create-react-app -g
  • Create a directory for your app, and navigate to it in command console.
  • Install the the my-app files or other project files in the folder.  Command: create-react-app my-app
  • In the command prompt start the yarn development server. Command: npm start
  • Use control-c to stop your development server.
