Hello and welcome to Codipher. Today we are going to install ReactJS on android device without any errors and then develop complete reactjs app. So without wasting further time let’s get started.

NOTE: If you try to install or create reactjs by changing the directory to /sdcard or /storage in termux, then the installation process will fail. It will give you different errors each time or it may get stuck somewhere. This is because Android device does not meet the requirements for installation of ReactJs.

Replace yourAppName with the name that you want to give it. And wait for about 10-15 minutes to finish the installation process. It depends on uour device specifications and internet connection. If you have a high end device and good internet speed it won’t take long to finish.

6) Now the reactjs app has been created. Now we need to start the development server on our localhost:3000, to do that let’s change our present working directory to the ReactJs app we recently created by executing below command.

cd yourAppName

7) Start the development server on localhost:3000 with below command

npm start 

or

yarn start

Now wait for the development server until it gets started, when it is successful started your default browser will open automatically on http://localhost:3000.

If the browser didn’t opened automatically, then you need to manually open the browser and type http://localhost:3000 in your search bar.
