React - create new app

13 points
Created by:

In this short article, we would like to show how in simple way create React application from command line using npm.

Quick solution (run the command):

npx create-react-app my-new-app

Where: my-new-app is the project name and directory that will be created.

Note: be sure the React is installed or install it with npm install -g react.


After application is created, we can run it using:

# change directory to our new application
cd my-new-app

# start application with npm
npm start


yarn package manager

We can use yarn package manager, too:

yarn create react-app my-new-app

cd my-new-app
yarn start
