create-react-app hello-world

UPDATE: I came back to this later and went through every tutorial — finally discovering this one that worked (at least in February of 2018).

I love when things work like they say they will. I’ve been wanting to make a PWA (in an odd way similar to a PSA) so the best way is to just do it.

But as all beginnings go, this task seemed less simple going forward. I found this article but this one seems like it might get me there faster. So I went with the latter.

The version number for the router didn’t dice on my terminal side, so I went ahead and did this:

npm install --save react-router

Phew. And it cleared and let me see this:

Emoji have really made the terminal window so much more fun!

But I made the mistake of not realizing that I had to make Firebase create a project (there was no CLI action there). That made me lose 10 minutes or so.

After that, stuff started working again, buuuuuut no dice in the end.

OMG so close! Got to go back and figure out what flag I didn’t get right. But my 30-minute happy hacking limit is up. I’ll come back to this later. —JM

PS1 Note to self: If I ever get to React Native, this Snack thing looks tasty via Expo — that looks yummy too.

PS2 Making a PWA with Java looks interesting.
