Part 01 – Lets start with react – Hello world

Skip to real stuff. 

My mom always says, just do it! Or was it Nike? Anyhow, I plan on actually just doing it. Like this guy!

So I am going to challenge myself everyday. It’s 6:35 AM in the morning and I have been up all night. I just want to reinvent myself in the best possible may. May be I just need some new learning. My day job involves Angular 1 so I am kinda bored and want to learn new skills. So here we go:

I am starting with installing and getting a basic “Hello World” app with react. The idea is to spend 30 minutes everyday and share my experiences with you.

All you need to know for this is a little bit about node and what is npm. That’s all. Then simply go into the terminal and type as follows


npm install -g create-react-app
create-react-app hello-world
cd hello-world
npm start

Now after that, you should have a working app which you can open in your browser and have fun looking at it. I’d post more tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Note: This is my personal journey with the react learning and I’d keep posting everyday.

Hello world!

OK, so here is hoping I blog for the next 365 days. Amen to that!

Right now, it feels like in the process of making a real catapult, I’d end up with something like that
