Since we access is a UI library and also it uses
JSX to display the UI components. Because of which react is used to build hybrid applications using react native. Write code once and run it anywhere. Do you need to learn react once when you can write anywhere.
Scaffolding ReactJs application using create-react-app
Before you get started you need to have few applications installed on your machine
- Node JS
- Vs code ( editor )
You can install the latest version of node from nodejs website. We will be using the npm package manager that comes with node JS to bundle dependencies in react application.
We will be using get to manage our version control to track all the changes that we do in an application. This helps us to keep the code more readable and trackable.
You can use any of your favorite text editor but we use vs code since it has built-in integration support and intellisense and integrated terminal. To manage our workflow within the text editor.
Once you are done with the configuration of installing node JS, git and vs code.
Follow below steps to create your first react project
- Create a new folder and open it with vs code Now you can pull up the integrated terminal with a a keyboard shortcut `ctrl+``
- Now you need to type the command to bring down the basic boilerplate which react provides us.
