update: use npx instead of installing globally
Looks like the current recommendation is to use
npx rather than
npm to avoid a global install. If you're just hearing of
npx for the first time (I was!), here's a helpful overview from Kat Marchán at npm.
npx comes with
npm 5.2+, and, essentially, it will install a temporary
create-react-app and call it for you in a single step, without you needing to install it globally.
So where Guil does:
npm install -g create-react-app cd desktop create-react-app search-app
You can instead
cd to the directory where you want to create your app, then do:
npx create-react-app search-app
You can then
cd search-app and
npm start just the same as Guil does in the video, everything else should look the same!
