Instructor: 00:01 Now that we've installed and configured the CLI, let's create a new React application, and then initialize a new Amplify project within the React application.
00:14 To do so, we'll use create React app to create a new React application called My Amplify app. Once the new React application has been created, let's change into the new directory.
00:49 The source directory can be left as source. The distribution directory, build. The build command can be left as build. The start command can be left as start.
01:04 Next, we're given the option to choose an AWS profile. Here, we can choose the profile that we created when we configured this CLI.
01:18 Now, our Amplify project has been initialized. We should now see a .Amplify rc file, as well as an Amplify folder, in our root directory.
01:29 The last thing we need to do is install the AWS Amplify and AWS Amplify React Client Libraries into our React application.
01:39 To do so, we can either use npm or yarn to add AWS Amplify and AWS Amplify React.
01:53 Now, the React app has been configured, the Amplify project has been created, and we're ready to begin adding new features.
