    Generate a Redwood Project


    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.

    0:35 First, we're going to cd into my-redwood-project. To run a Redwood project, we can run yarn redwood dev. When you hop over to your browser, you'll see that Redwood is running on port 8910.
