JavaScript React Basics First Steps in React Add React to a Project

When *** did they teach us how to set up a local test server. I'm confused how to even get this off the ground. WTF

Read through the documentation. It refers to a python.org site. Pretty sure we're learning javascript. Additionally, the first link goes nowhere. Please, show in the videos all the steps. Not just some of the steps.

The Community is a public forum for all students of ALL ages. It is expected that appropriate and respectful language is used when posting questions, participating in discussions, or providing answers.

I have edited the offensive language from your post, and I would like for you to refer to the Treehouse Code of Conduct when posting in the future.

Unfortunately, I am unable to assist you with your issue, as I do not have experience with React.
