Building Your First React App

Since React is just a JavaScript library, it doesn’t really require a full-fledged framework to make it work. It’s main focus is on the view (user interface), so it can be injected anywhere to any page without relying on a framework. However, if you want to build a complete single page application, then it’s better to use an environment like Node.js and the command line interface (CLI) to build it. It’s more efficient. In this video, we’ll create our first React app using Node.js and the CLI.
