React JSX Question

Can't create webstorm react project

I'm trying to create a react project in webstorm Version 2016.3.1 (nov 22 2016).

It's asking me for a create-react-app but I have no idea what that is and I can't find any reference on google.

What is it asking me and where can I find the value?

enter image description here

Thank you


You need to install create-react-app npm module, before you use this feature.

npm install -g create-react-app

You can read more about this feature on the official release blog of WebStorm.

Excerpt from the documentation :

Make sure that you have create-react-app installed globally on your computer, for that run npm install -g create-react-app. Then to start your new project, double click on the start task in the npm tasks tool window to run it. That’s it!
