You need Node & npm.

If you cloned it from Github, go into the appropriate directory on your device:

cd folder-name

Install the dependencies:

npm i

and run it:

npm start

If you get some errors:

  • check if you are in the correct folder
  • check if you forgot something (e.g. start instead of npm start)
  • check if you misspelled something (e.g nmp strat instead of npm start)
  • check if you have Node & npm on your system (node -v and npm -v should show something like v10.9.0 or 6.4.0)
  • read the error message & search for it in the www
  • contact me


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b feature/your-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add your-feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin feature/your-feature)
  5. Create a new Pull Request
