Installing & Setting Up Remake
Go to the main website for Node.js, download the installer, and run it.
Create your first Remake project
After you're done installing Node, you'll be able to create a Remake app.
Node comes with a command line program called
npx, which lets you run packages in your terminal.
Open your terminal and run this command to create a new app:
npx remake create my-app
You can change the "my-app" part to whatever you want your app to be called.
You'll be given the option to install an empty app or a Kanban app. I'd recommend starting with the Kanban, so you can see how Remake works up close.
Change into your app's directory after the app is finished being created:
Run the dev server
In order to use and build a Remake application on your local computer, you need to run Remake's local servier.
To get the local server started, run the following command from inside your project's directory:
npm run dev
Great! Now you have a local Remake server running on your computer!
Check it out in a browser!
In a web browser, go to http://localhost:3000 to see your new Kanban starter application.
