How to use create-react-app

This is a blog for creating a new React project by using create-react-app tools.

  1. Install Node.js

  2. Install create-react-app

    # -g means gloal
    npm install -g create-react-app
  3. Navigate to the folder where you want to create your new project, and create a project by using create-react-app, for example the new project name is “helloworld”

    create-react-app helloworld
  4. Preview your project in your browser

    cd helloworld
    npm start / yarn start
  5. Create a production build and you will get a “build” folder

    npm run build

    When this has completed, you can follow the onscreen prompts to deploy it to your server or just test it locally using the popular serve node package
