We can use
create-react-app command to setup a React project with all the necessary tools. We can even setup a React project with TypeScript support.
As per the official documentation, the command to spin-up a new React project in
my-app folder is:
npx create-react-app my-app
Above command creates a new folder
my-app and all the project files inside it. But, in some cases we do not want the command to create new folder. We already have a project folder, where we need the project files to be generated.
In that case, navigate to the folder and use below command:
npx create-react-app .
.) makes all the difference. Now, a new folder is not created.
