Get Started Immediately

You don’t need to install or configure tools like Webpack or Babel.
They are preconfigured and hidden so that you can focus on the code.

Just create a project, and you’re good to go.

Getting Started


Install it once globally:

npm install -g create-react-app
You’ll need to have Node >= 4 on your machine.

We strongly recommend to use Node >= 6 and npm >= 3 for faster installation speed and better disk usage. You can use nvm to easily switch Node versions between different projects.

This tool doesn’t assume a Node backend. The Node installation is only required for Create React App itself.

Creating an App

To create a new app, run:

create-react-app my-app
cd my-app
It will create a directory called my-app inside the current folder.
