Prerequisites & Setup

Prerequisites

To get started you'll need to have:
    Node.js installed
    Yarn installed
    Git installed
    Clone of the Workshop Repo

Node.js Installation

Node.js is a runtime for Javascript that lets you run and build applications in Javascript outside of a web browser.
Visit the Node.js Download page for binary packages, or visit https://nodejs.dev/ for installation right from your console.

Yarn installation

Yarn is the package manager we'll use for downloading and keeping track of the dependencies we need for our project.
To install, run npm install -g yarn in your terminal.

Git Installation

Git is a tool used to manage your project's source code.
To install, follow the instruction available here or try Github Desktop.

Clone the Workshop

To clone the repo, open up your terminal, navigate to the folder you want to put the code, and run
1
git clone https://github.com/SkynetLabs/skynet-workshop.git
Copied!

Setup

Install Dependencies

Open your terminal to the cloned repo folder and run yarn install to install the project's dependencies. This can take a while and will install over a thousand code libraries in the node_modules folder. We're building on the shoulders of giants!

Start Development Server

Run yarn start to spin up a local development server that serves our application. If your browser doesn't launch, visit localhost:3000. Create React App will auto-reload when you save a file, but sometimes you may need to stop the server and run the command again. (Use Ctrl+C in the terminal to stop your app.)
