Why can't I view React app in browser?
I set it up exactly as the video is telling me to, but for some reason when my app runs in the browser I see the React logo and then a message underneath that says "Edit src/App.js and save to reload." Instead of actually seeing the app in the browser.
Did I do something wrong or miss a step? I've rewatched the video a thousand times and can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

So my solution to this was to create the app, remove all files and folders within the scoreboard folder created by create-react-app, replace them with the project files, then run npm install, and then npm start.

Update: I gave up on using npm-create-react and just started using my Atom IDE and local development server from the first tutorial. I would like to use this method (above) but I don't want to spend hours figuring out how to make it work when I can just keep on the tutorial.
