In this lesson, we are going over how to generate a RedwoodJS project.

We can create a RedwoodJS project with yarn create redwood-app ./my-redwood-project.

yarn will generate the RedwoodJS app in the file folder you specified without installing any globals.

To run the RedwoodJS app, we use yarn redwood dev. This runs the Redwood client as well as the GraphQL backend.
