Here's a short note on my understanding of React Native and how to set it up.
Node.js LTS release - Download a stable release -
Installing Expo CLI
npm install --global expo-cli
- Expo go app - Download the Expo mobile app to open up apps built with Expo CLI
Create a project and start the development server
In a terminal run this command which will create a new project:
expo init your-project-name // navigate to the project cd your-project-name // start the development server expo start
The app can be viewed on the Expo go app or a virtual device.
That's how to set up React Native for development using Expo CLI. For more information, view the Expo docs - here and the React Native docs - here
