Installs & Configs

Before we get started, there are a few things we need to install, update, and configure in your environment.

Installing and updating

In your terminal, run the following commands to install and update some software we’ll be using for this workshop.


First, install version 14 of Node.Js

# install node v14
nvm install v14
# configure node v14 as the default
nvm alias default 14
# version should be v14.*
node --version


We will use yarn to manage our react application

# install yarn
npm install --global yarn
yarn --version
