It is NOT necessary to install create-react-app to run 'npx'!

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I was going through the tutorial at 'https://www.w3schools.com/react/default.asp', however... I was surprised to find that it asked for create-react-app to be installed as a requirement to be able to run 'npx'! This is absolutely not true. The purpose of 'npx' is to be able to execute programs that you do not need to necessarily have installed on your machine.

So let me re-iterate... It is absolutely possible to run 'C:\Users\Your Name>npx create-react-app myfirstreact' without installing it ' C:\Users\Your Name>npm install -g create-react-app'.
