1. Install Nodejs

  • Go to official Nodejs website
  • Download 32 bit or 64 bit version, as per your system requirement.

  • Create Folder like ‘ReactProject’

If you’ve previously installed ‘create-react-app‘ globally via ‘npm install -g create-react-app‘, please remove any global installs with one of the following commands:

  • Create first React application, using following command
    # npx create-react-app <APP-NAME>

** In some cases, you might get an error like “npm ERR! cb() never called!”.

You can run the following command using Administrative privileges and try to create app again.

# npm install –global windows-build-tools

  • Once your project folder/app will be created successfully, you will see the following screen

3. Start the development server

    # npm start
  • This command will start your application on http://localhost:3000
