How do I add the __redirect file so that is added to the build-folder when I use the "npm run build" command?

The video shows how to add the file after the build-folder is built, but when I use Github and Netlify - how do I add the file?

You'd create add the _redirects file to the public folder. Then, run npm build, and finally deploy.

I can't take all the create because I actually had the same question. I found the answer from stackoverflow.
