Tech Tutorial: Learning React.js for Single-Page Web Applications – Episode 02: NPX and CreateReactApp

React.js JavaScript applications are primarily single pages applications or SPAs. SPAs run primarily in the user’s browser and interact with a back-end RESTful API. Due to this, React.js application can become quite complex to setup. To mitigate the complexity inherent in setting up a SPA application, the CreateReactApp node.js package was built. This package is an executable NPM package that can be executed using NPX.

In this video, we walk through setting up a new React.js SPA using the CreateReactApp utility.

Personal Recommendation (unpaid)
Programming and software development are awesome! Being that you are learning along with me, there is a really good chance you can make this a career. Based on my own life experience, let me suggest to you that you go get a Computer Science degree from Neumont College of Computer Science and kick your life into hyper-drive.
