    Bootstrap a new React project with npx and create-react-app


    Getting started with a new frontend project can be daunting. Sometimes, configuring Babel, webpack, eslint, Jest and all the other tools common to most frontend applications, just holds you back from building something. The React team has built and maintains create-react-app so you can start a project quickly without having to worry about setting up all the tooling. You get everything pre-configured with a lot of really sensible defaults. In this lesson, we'll bootstrap a project with npx and create-react-app so we can get right into building apps with React.
