React Native requires a lot of initial set up to get an app going. In this lesson, we will use create-react-native-app to do this initial setup for us. We will install
create-react-native-app globally and create a new project.
After creating the project we will run the development server which will print a QR code on the terminal. We will install the app called
Expo Client on our mobile phone and use it to scan the QR code.
This will load our app on our mobile phone in development mode. When make adjustments to our project the changes will be reflected on our phone. If we use
console.log the messages will be printed in our terminal.
