Need help setting up a MERN app.
What should be the best way to setup a MERN app. I want to use react and react router on the front-end with react-strap. And express on the backend. any help is greatly appreciated as im trying to do this for a long while.

Not quite sure what the question is here. I usually start by setting up Express to serve the app and then set up Mongo. Then I'll build the components and connect them one at a time to achieve the desired action.
Treehouse doesn't really have a course or track centered around building with the MERN stack, but you should be able to pick up all of the components on their own and then piece them together. If not, there is a free youtube course by Traversy Media that covers the stack.
