Welcome to React Training!
This repo contains the course material for React Training. Before attending the training, please make sure you can run this repository.
$ git clone https://github.com/ReactTraining/react-workshop.git $ cd react-workshop $ npm install $ npm start
Then, open a web browser to http://localhost:8080 where you'll see a list of subjects.
If you've already cloned the repo but you need to get updated code, then follow these steps:
cdinto the root directory of the repo
- Then do an
lscommand to ensure you see a
package.jsonfile listed. If you don't you're not in the root folder of the repo
- Then run these steps to get the updates:
git pull origin master npm install
Then you should be able to do your
npm start and open a web browser to http://localhost:8080 where you'll see a list of subjects.
We'll be running commands like the ones from the install/update instructions above. These are bash commands which means if you're on Windows you'll need a bash-enabled command-line tool. If you've installed Git For Windows then you'll have a command-line tool called Git Bash already. This seems to work out well for doing other bash things that aren't just git specific (like NPM).
A few common problems:
- You're having problems cloning the repository. Some corporate networks block port 22, which git uses to communicate with GitHub over SSH. Instead of using SSH, clone the repo over HTTPS. Use the following command to tell git to always use
$ git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git:// # This adds the following to your `~/.gitconfig`: [url "https://"] insteadOf = git://
- You're having trouble installing node. We recommend using nvm. nvm makes it really easy to use multiple versions of node on the same machine painlessly. After you install nvm, install the latest stable version of node with the following command:
$ nvm use default stable
- You don't have permissions to install stuff. You might see an error like
npm installstep. If that's the case, it probably means that at some point you did an
sudo npm installand installed some stuff with root permissions. To fix this, you need to forcefully remove all files that npm caches on your machine and re-install without sudo.
$ sudo rm -rf node_modules # If you installed node with nvm (suggested): $ sudo rm -rf ~/.npm # If you installed node with Homebrew: $ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/node_modules # Then (look ma, no sudo!): $ npm install
