How To Make A JSX complier


#1

I was wondering how do I compile JSX code on my own laptop outside of when I use CodeAcademy, do I just put
import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'

at the beginning of a JS file, and then it will work fine?


#2

no, that won't work. You will need to install reactjs.

The easiest i have come across is:

it contains everything you need without you having to configure the build

Thank you for that link, I was following the instructions on the read me, and I installed nvm as directed, but when I try to install the react-app using the command
npm install -g create-react-app,
I get
-bash: npm: command not found
What am I supposed to do to install this?


#4

npm needs to be installed first? npm is not installed by default

if you run commands which you don't know, you should google what program they belong to


#5

Thank you, I now have it downloaded.
